DIY: Green T-shirt Necklace

We were looking around, checking out green ways to add to your cute outfits - we love what we found! Here is an easy way to make a stylish necklace (out of an old t-shirt!) that can add to any old look.

What you will need:
  • An old 100% cotton t-shirt that you want to put to good use
  • A ruler
  • Fabric scissors
  • A flat, clean surface.
How to:
  1. Put the shirt on the flat, clean surface - make sure to lay it on smoothly, with no bumps that could get in the way.
  2. Cut off the hem at the bottom of the shirt, and throw it away.
  3. Cut the shirt into strips about 3/4 inch wide - make sure to cut the strips so that they create a loop.
  4. Once the shirt is all cut up, take each strip and stretch it until it curls at the edges.
  5. Put each curled strip one on top of the other until the necklace is as thick as you want it.
  6. Cut one extra loop so that it is a long string of t-shirt, and wrap it around one section of your loops (make it about 2-3 inches thick).
Rock this cute necklace with your favorite Jambu™'s - you'll feel great about this eco-friendly look!
