Framing Scarves

Framed Hermès Scarves - Marika Meyers Interiors

The photo above is from the 2017 DC Design House that I attended and this wall made quite an impression! I just bought a beautiful silk scarf online I would love to frame. I was going to use my go-to source Framebridge, but the scarf I want to frame is larger than they do. The scarf I got is not valuable enough to justify heirloom framing where they hand sew it on acid free board and such.

So I think this will make a fun DIY. I will share my sources for frames, tips, etc. Have any of you framed a scarf yourself? Any tips? Stay tuned.

I have a Pinterest board here on Framing Vintage Scarves if you would like more ideas.

Speaking of DC, for those who have not heard the news, Tony Bennett has died at the age of 96. Having spent 40 years in DC, I saw him in concert more than any other artist - more times than I can count as he performed almost yearly at Wolf Trap and I always went. This is my favorite Tony Bennett song - "When Joanna Loved Me" - click here. RIP

Have a wonderful weekend and stay cool.


  1. try a white frame from where you can get white metal frame sides in any size and then put it together with glass from the hardwaare store.

  2. This is a stunning display. I have several scarves that I am now going to use for this type of art. Thank you for the inspiration.

  3. Love this idea. I did a Naples tea towel in our kitchen but a scarf would be a great way to bring color or pattern into a space too.

  4. I've done Chinoiserie linen cocktail napkins - and went to Hobby Lobby chose a simple inexpensive black frame and had each napkin backed with clear glass like the front. Turned out FABULOUS:) I'm sure this process would work for scarves, too;)

  5. I heard that Tony Bennett passed away. His "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" always pulled at my heartstrings. I'm a native San Franciscan.

  6. By chance did you see Tony Bennett at Wolf Trap when Diana Krall opened for him. Heaven!
