Tee Shirt Beaded Necklace

This Tee Shirt Beaded Necklace is a great way to reuse an old tee shirt.  Add a little string of pearls to turn this necklace from drab to fab!  The great thing about this tee shirt craft is that you can wear it day or night, and it's a great way to dress up or down any outfit.  Mix and match tee shirts to create a multi-colored tee shirt necklace that's unlike anything on the market today.

Materials:

  • An old tee shirt
  • Scissors
  • Pearls

 

Instructions:

  1. First lay your tee shirt out flat.  Starting at the bottom, cut strips about 1 inch wide.  It doesn’t have to be perfect, just eyeball it.
     
  2. Once your strips have been cut (I stopped cutting as soon as I got to the sleeves), gently stretch them out one by one.
     
  3. You could use a scrap piece of tee shirt material or a heavy duty piece of thread to thread the pearls.  I used some left over tee shirt material that I stretched until it was super thin.  I used a knitting needle to thread the pearls onto the fabric thread.
     
  4. Depending on the size of the tee shirt, you should be able to wrap the strips around your neck twice.  That’s what I did and then I tied the string of pearls to the doubled up strips of tee shirt fabric.

These instructions seem incomplete to me. How are the strips fastened together? What am I missing?

Hi there, you just simply tie the two ends together and make a knot - no special technique. Hope that helps! - Julia from FaveCrafts

This is very interesting and looks Easy enough. I would like to try it!
