Recycle T-shirt to
create a necklace
Not only are layered necklaces one of spring’s most talked about accessories, but they also add pops of color to plain tank tops and shirts.
1 large T-shirt
1-2 safety pins
Small decorative beads
Lay T-shirt flat on a table.
Cut off and discard hem.
Going up the body of the shirt, snip 1-inch rings until you have 10-15 rings.
Stretch each “ring” of material until the material starts to curl under.
Place seams together and wrap rings twice to double the thickness of the necklace.
Bring necklace together with 1-2 safety pins adorned with beads.
