Quick DIY to Pretty Up Your Camera Strap!

I live in Bristol, did I ever mention that? Its a pretty cool place to live as theres always something going on especially in the summer time the weekends are full of festivals and lots of free things to do.
This weekend is no different as its time for the International Balloon Fiesta (thats right, fiesta) so it is the perfect chance to head somewhere and watch the mass exodus of balloons head out over the city. Its also a chance for some amazing pictures. Now as you might know from my previous post, the boyfriend and I went out to get my birthday present a few weeks ago which just happened to be a DSLR camera and we had a deal that I could use it for the next 24 hours after which it would then go in the loft until my birthday.
Turns out the boyfriend is a bit of a softie and is letting me have it again today to take pretty pictures!
The strap that comes with the camera is pretty standard and being someone who is not keen on things being standard I had to pretty up a little:
This literally took less than 5 minutes and cost me nothing (YAY!)
Heres how:

You will need:
Camera with the strap
A long headscarf (mine was from Accessorize years ago)

To start just tie one end of the scarf to the end of the camera strap:

Then, wrap the scarf around the strap making sure there are no gaps and the side you want is showing:
Tie the other ends together:
TADAAA all done!
Its so easy to do and because theres no sewing or anything involved you can change it up as and when the mood takes you!

Quick ideas that make things pretty make me happy!

Have a fab weekend!
