Sunday Parkways transforms bandanas into beautiful home décor

            We all have that friend who has that living room setup that looks like it came straight out of some Pinterest blog, and we all can’t help but think; “There’s no way I could make something like this…”. Stop right there, because there is a way. With a little creativity, and a handy-dandy bandana you could have some beautiful home décor without breaking the bank.

            The first thing you’ll need to do is find something sturdy enough to wrap your bandana around. Your local craft store should have all kinds of options, but any kind of a foam board will work best. It’s easy to cut, and shape into any design you’d like! If you’re looking to use something that’s just lying around the house, a shoebox lid would be a great option too. Now, all you have to do is wrap your bandana around your base and glue down the sides with any kind of fabric glue.

            Let it dry overnight, and all that’s left is to hang up your beautiful creation! Take all your patterns and shapes, and arrange them into a fun and creative display. You’ll be left with some beautiful modern wall art that will make even your friend with the Pinterest home jealous!
