One of my favorite presents this Christmas started from a simple scarf: The Cityblock Storyteller Scarf from Madewell. As I've mentioned before, I covet anything with a reference to NYC because it reminds me of my single, childless days of living there (not that I would trade my child-filled days with EG in Connecticut!). But when I spotted this Madewell scarf of the city on sale for $35.00 I grabbed one for myself and for Kurby for presents. Then my wheels started turning...
This scarf is adorbs with a pair of skinny jeans, flats and a denim shirt. But I wanted to display the entire city scape somehow. I decided to frame mine so it would be permanent art on my walls.
The framer stretched the scarf until it would stretch no farther. I selected a thick black frame with a slight hue of antique gold/brown on the edge. I wanted something that would offer a modern yet vintage flair.
It turned out pretty large! It's almost 5 feet wide and I love how it makes a statement in my hallway right outside my bedroom.
I am always looking for unique art that can't be found in every store. I like the idea of framing something that's a personal favorite because it creates artwork that is unique. This scarf was on sale for $35. The framing was obviously more costly (several hundreds) but the end result was a large piece of artwork that covers a large wall and makes a statement. And it has meaning to my family.
Have you ever framed something like a scarf or article of clothing to turn it into "art?"
Happy New Year's Eve (almost....)!
