Hey friends! I just made this really fun necklace over the weekend and I wanted to share it with you!! I LOOVE IT!! It’s really easy. I have been seeing FRINGE everything. Fringe this and fringe that! I thought…I bet I can create a fringe necklace out of an old t-shirt. And sure enough, it can turn your ordinary outfit into a carefree, boho look! I bet you already have most of the items that you’ll need at home. Here is goes:
I would suggest a regular guys t-shirt or one of the stiffer old school ones! Some of the new women’s t-shirts don’t rip very well. I think a bright colored t-shirt would be really cool too! Or if you want to bump it up a notch… LEATHER would be really really amazing.
Old t-shirt, scissors, and needle and thread.
1 // Rip t-shirt into thin strips. Start the rip with a small cut using scissors.
2 // Pull both ends and rip! Rip the entire t-shirt into long thin strips.
3 // Choose the longest 3 pieces and start to braid. This will be the base of your necklace.
4 // Line up the other strips in the order that you want them. I suggest cutting them to create different lengths. Longer layers in the middle for the fringe look. Make sure the thin strips are DOUBLE the length that you want them in the final product.
5 // Start to braid the fringe into the base of your necklace-braid one strip at a time. Pull tight. One thin strip should look like 2 strips hanging because its folder over and weaved through the braid.
6 // Sew the two ends of the necklace together so you can’t see the seam. Or you can tie a knot here if you don’t mind seeing a knot.
