Step 1: 

Use your string to measure Teddy's head. Wrap around the crown of his head. Add an extra inch or two and snip.

Step 2: 

Take that string and lay across your duct tape fabric. My string measured out at about 9 1/2 inches, so I will add an extra 1/2 inch and cut at the 10 inch mark. If you want to add an extra strip of color or like I did, take a different color piece of duct tape, trim to 10 inches and tear it in half. Apply that piece to the bottom of your main base color.

Step 3: 

Roll your fabric into a tube. Cut another piece of duct tape about 1/2 inch thick and place on the inside of the duct tape fabric. Bring back your little teddy to help in making a nice snug fit around his head.

Step 4: 

I am using a pre-made tassel for the top of his hat. In order to attach that tassel I took a small piece of main color duct tape and attached it to the inside of the hat along the seam.

Step 5: 

Once the tassel is attached, fold the top of the tub onto itself, and seal with tiny strips of main color duct tape. (Tip: I pre-made these in advance and placed on parchment paper so I can have nice and clean lines when cut down to size with scissors) Take the tape and attach at an angle on either side of the tassel.

Step 6: 

You want to make the tape nice and tight so the hat cinches at the top. Now take the side and pooch it in with your finger.

Step 7: 

Pooch it in on either side as well and secure with your small duct tape strips.

Step 8: 

Do the same thing on the other side, pulling in as you go.

Step 9: 

Lastly, you want to fold up the bottom half. Now onto the scarf...

Step 10: 

Use your string as your measurement tool and cut the duct tape at desired length.

Step 11: 

Create a fold over strip with your duct tape. Add extra tape if you want to make the scarf a bit thicker. Trim any excess.

Step 12: 

To make its edge, I used matching tape from the hat trim.

Step 13: 

Fold over onto itself, and trim any excess white.

Step 14: 

Lastly, create a fringe so it looks just like a real scarf. You're all done!

Step 15: 

Now teddy is all ready for the cold! Top with a hat and wrap around the scarf and he's ready to go play outside.
