Yesterday I showed you a picture of something I made. There were two necklaces. Today I'm sharing my 'knot fancy necklace.'
I always browse the clearance section at Target for good deals on t-shirts. I will only spend a couple of bucks, and I look for the biggest sizes. The bigger sizes give you more fabric to work with.
These necklaces aren't anything fancy, but it's a great way to use up old t-shirts. It's kind of my ode to the t-shirt eternity scarves.
1. Grab your tools. - a t-shirt, scissors
2. Cut a long strip from your t-shirt. Make it thick or thin, it doesn't matter.
3. Trim off any sewn seams
4. Start tying knots on your strip of fabric.
When you reach your desired length of necklace knot the ends together. There was no rhyme or reason to where I tied my knots. Except if I had cut my t-shirt and had a curve, there would definitely be a knot there.
Now repeat the process with as many t-shirts as you want.
I thought it would be fun to have a printed necklace too. To get the most from my shirt, I cut along the side and bottom. You can see my angle in the middle picture. I tied my knot right on the angle.
Adding beads and flowers is a good way to spruce them up too.
Have a great Friday!
