Late to the game, but you still want make a homemade gift for your best friend? Well, do what mine did, make her a stenciled scarf! (Thanks Kara!)
To make: Buy a pre-made blank scarf, grab a stencil (she used a Martha Stewart pattern), a fabric friendly paint, and stencil away! (Tip: Use a drier brush and do a few layers of paint on each stencil, building the paint up, to avoid any paint bleed.) Let it dry and gift! Happy holidays!
