DIY: Winter Scarf Camera Strap and a Winner

Oh, baby! It’s been cold around here.

Not that it’s a bad thing.

As a matter of fact, the cold can make for some delightful trips to town. A few days ago, the frigid air was perfectly still and the huge bare trees that line the highway were covered in thick white frost. The sun had just peeked over the Eagle Cap Mountains, creating the perfect light against the deep blue sky.

Absolutely breathtaking!

There’s only one thing that would’ve made it better.


I told myself right then and there, I was going to keep my camera handy at all times. So of course, making a stylish camera strap from one of my scarves was definitely next on the agenda.

This is so easy, you could make one to go with all of your outfits. It would also make a great gift for those photogs in your life.

The sky is definitely the limit when you make a camera strap from a scarf. They are one of my favorite accessories and I seem to pick one up every time I hit the thrift shops.
