    How to Choose Your Organization for Giving Tuesday
    That scarf can be your secret weapon.

    Did you know there is one item in your wardrobe you can wear around your neck, as a shirt, as a purse, and around your head? That's right ... that scarf in the back of your closet is the piece that could take you from day to night in a flash. Jill Martin of US Weekly magazine reveals how to tie the fabric into a halter top, belt, purse or a headband.

    A halter top
    1. Lay the scarf down with the dull side facing up. (36” inch square — if you want more coverage go bigger.)

    2. Take the middle of the scarf and tie a small knot (right in the middle).

    3. Tie 2 of the corners around your neck and the other 2 corners around your waist. Pair this with a flowy skirt or pair of pants and you are set!

    A belt
    1. Lay the scarf out flat.

    2. Fold your scarf into a triangle and roll it starting at one corner until you have one long tube-like scarf.

    3. Put it through the loops of jeans or slacks and tie a knot in the front.

    A purse
    1. Take any square scarf (36” by 36”) is standard — go bigger if you to go bigger. Lay it with the dull side facing up.

    2. Take two opposite corners and tie them into a square knot.

    3. Then take the last 2 opposite corners of the scarf and tie those into a square knot. This will become the handle for the bag. Voila! You have a purse!

    1. Start with a square scarf. Fold it in half to form a triangle and then fold inwards until you get the desired width. Smooth the long portion across your forehead and tie the ends in knot under your hair.
