Phantom Scarf

Hello all ! I'm excited about this post, its my first accessory ! I originally saw this on pinterest here and I fell in love ! I adore all things covered in writing or script. Here's what I started out with.

I went to Walmart and found a plain white scarf for $5 and a black paint pen for $3
Then came time to decide what to write on it. I went through all the quotes I like, some lyrics and couldn't find anything I really liked. I started walking around the house looking at books and things around the house and I found it ! Phantom of the Opera lyrics ! I'm crazy for not thinking of it earlier ! I picked "All I ask of you" just because its awesome and romantic and I love it :)

I wrote out the lyrics just because knowing me I'd forget where I was and repeat a line.
Make sure you shake that paint pen like a shake weight cause it will not write without it. Also, bear down on it a lot. I had some left over cardboard so I did some practice runs.

Don't make fun of my cursive... Its been many a year since it was required in school. Besides when I've got the scarf on, you can't even tell I have not so pretty handwriting.

Tada !!!!! I was genuinely pleased with how it all turned out. Make sure though when you're writing on something like a table or something you don't want messed up, you put something between the scarf and the table. The paint did bleed through.

Super cute :) I like it and I've already gotten several complements on it already.
I hope everyone has a lovely day !
