T-Shirt Necklace

This idea was one that was found on the internet, but it is a great way to get rid of those old t-shirts that are not wanted anymore.

First step in this project is to cut around the bottom of the shirt. You should cut a circle about 1/2 inch to 1 inch thick. Make sure that when you are cutting that you are cutting a circle because that is what makes it a necklace, do not just cut strips of fabric that are not connected.

The picture above is about what your piece of fabric should look like once you have cut it. 

The next thing you do once you have cut the desired amount of circles is to stretch them. When you stretch the fabric it makes it into a tube like structure that looks more finished.
Then after you have done this to all of your strips you put them together and be creative. There are many different ways that you can mix and match these strips. You can even pick different color shirts to mix with or add accessories.
