March Necklace Madness Continues

I cleaned out my drawers this weekend for repurposing purposes! This is a T-shirt necklace made from an old T-shirt of mine.

Materials:
Old Necklace
Rotary Cutter
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun


Cut the t-shirt and cut into thin strips with a rotary cutter or scissors.  The rotary cutter makes easy and  fast.  Then tie the strips together to make it long enough for a necklace.  I tied a knot and with the length I turned it around the knot to make the little flowers. 
  



This was so easy and looks fun on!

And you know what else!? The kids can pull on it all they want and it won't break! How's that for baby proofing?

I'll be linking up to these parties this week! Check them out!

  6. That is so clever! I was wondering, did you glue the strands so they would stay in place? What did you use the old necklace for? I want to make some!

  7. The only glue I used was for the flowers. If I make another one maybe I'll take more pictures and post a tutorial!

  13. That's so cute, and a great benefit to this kind of necklace is that it's not going to hurt when a 2 yr. old tried to rip it off! Lol.

    Thanks for linking to Creative Cats!
