Tutorial Tuesday: Things to do to a T-Shirt II

This week  I had fun making myself a new necklace out of an old t-shirt (hello, Project ReStyle!).
All you need are some cloth scraps, ribbon, a glue gun--and miss erika's awesome scrap flower tutorial
Make your flowers according to erika's easy step-by-step process and arrange them however you like. I wove in some black tulle to give it a little texture.
Glue two lengths of ribbon to the back of the flower arrangement--these should be as long as you'd like; they'll tie around the back of your neck. I used a fun velvet, but chunky satin would also be cool!
And voila! Easy new necklace (and more storage space in your closet!).
Thanks to erika from pinksuedeshoe for the fantastic tutorial!

Have more t-shirts to cut up? Check out my first post here!

(PS: Why has it taken me so long to discover how amazing a glue gun is??)

  1. I love how this looks with the tulle in it! I really need to make me a necklace, they are so so pretty!

  2. It's such a fun craft, I'm thinking of making a headband next!

  3. This is such a cute DIY! I'm totally going to make it :)

  4. Allison, throw on a chick flick, grab your glue gun, and have at it!

  5. How did I miss this post!? Oh my gosh, that is so gorgeous. I would do something ridiculous for that necklace--like...eat whole grain bread! If you're not already an art director at some swanky magazine, you really should be.
