Cool temps seem like they are here to stay, at least for awhile.

This super easy scarf kids can make is sure to bring some cheer to your chilly days.

My 7 year old made the majority of this scarf.

She is proud of it!

DIY fleece scarf - easy enough for kids to make
Make a Scarf

Supplies needed:

  • 1/3 to 1/2 yard of non-fraying fleece
  • Scissors
  • Needle & thread (best if the thread matches the fleece)
  • Three lids – roughly 4″ diameters, 3″ and 1-2″ diameter

You will want to start by cutting one narrow strip from the fleece, 1″ wide and the length that you want the finished scarf to be.

For the lids, search through your recycle bin.   We used a milk cap, a cap from a fruit cup and the lid to the sour cream to be the lids that we traced to create our scarf.

We cut 20 circles from the fleece for each of the lids.   For a longer scarf, cut more.   My adult scarf (still in-progress) has roughly 30 circles.


After you have your circles cut, stack them together.   Stitch the circles together tightly to make a flower.

Try and make “wrinkles” in the circles as you piece them together.   Sew the circles to the 1″ strip.   You want the flowers to overlap a bit.   Again, we tried to make them wrinkly a touch for dimension – then sew the flowers to each other.

Stay warm and cheery this winter as you dream of the flowers of spring!

We think this would be a great gift that kids can make for a loved one.  Or pull the materials together with some handwritten instructions and give it as a DIY gift kit for kids to create their own scarf.
