Finished Friday: Shirt Scarf DIY

I have so many "crafty" pins on Pinterest! I was recently inspired to join in with "Finished Friday" over at A Heart For Home to start completing some projects.

I got my "Pinspiration" from this post on Pinterest and the full instructions are on the blog, Hello Giggles and their post, DIY T-Shirt Scarf.

 What you'll need: A t-shirt and a pair of scissors

I started with a t-shirt that had a hole in it. Cut your shirt horizontally, under the armpits.

There's a hole in my shirt dear Liza, dear Liza...

What did I do with the top part? Put it on little man of course! Haha! He wasn't quite as amused. 

Cut the hem off the bottom of the shirt. (I saved that part to use later)

Cut strips on the looped ends that are about 1" thick. Once their all cut, pull on the loops and stretch them out. they will kind of curl up and look "stringier" once their stretched.

Gather up the necklace at the uncut part and that is where you can tie a string of some sort to cover it. I used the leftover piece of hem fabric.


This was a fun (and quick) craft! My necklace is shorter than the ones from the original tutorials, but they used larger shirts and I used a small tee. This is one of my favorite types of crafts too... no sewing involved ;) and it's such an individual craft with no "right" way that it should look - everyone's is unique and one of a kind!


  1. I love it! I've seen those necklaces before and wondered how to make one myself. :-)

  2. Very energetic post, I loved that bit. Will there be a part 2?
