DIY T-Shirt Yarn

I’m beyond excited about a DIY statement piece necklace that I made for FREE! Yes, FREE!!!! All I used was scissors, a t-shirt my husband didn’t want anymore, a needle and thread. I made the statement piece necklace from t-shirt yarn so in this post I will show you how to make T-shirt yarn. Once you have t-shirt yarn the possibilities are endless. You can make so many different things with it and its free or cheap. Just tell your friends and family to give you any of their unwanted t-shirts:-)


If your t-shirt has any graphics on it that you don’t want on the yarn just cut below it to separate that portion of the shirt from the rest. You will be left with a “tube” that will become your t-shirt yarn.

 

Lay the tube flat, pick a starting point and cut up and parallel to the opening. I chose to make my strip about 1 1/2 inches wide to ensure that my yarn will be thick enough to craft with.

Continue to cut parallel until you run out of t-shirt.

Lastly, pull the strip taut to encourage it to roll over on to itself and not fray.



Easy enough right?!?! Stay tuned for the statement piece necklace. Enjoy!

Easy No Fuss DIY Head Wrap

Who else adores head wraps but are a little intimidated by how to actually do the wrap? (Me!!!) I mean, they are so cute, very stylish, and can fix a bad hair day like non other. I decided to fix that problem for free by making this no fuss DIY head wrap from a T-shirt that I got from my husband. (Go Rockets!) This size is a mens extra large.

 If the T-shirt has any print on it just cut below it to detach the solid color from the top of the shirt. That amount also happens to be the ideal amount of shirt I needed for my hair wrap.
 Once you have cut the bottom portion completely off you should be left with a “tube” that will become your new no fuss head wrap.


You can wrap your hair 3 different ways and even make a mini infinity scarf with your “tube”.

wrap

 

  1. Mini Infinity Scarf– Place the tube around your neck and loop it 1 time. Adjust the length as desired. 

2. High Knot– Place the tube around your head.Lay it flat around the back of your head and pull the length up. Twist it in one direction to create a “rope”. Coil the rope around itself and tuck in the end.

3. Crown Wrap-Place the tube around your head and loop it 2 times. Lay the first layer flat and gather the other top layer near your forehead to form a “rope” or crown.

  

  

4. Low Knot-Place the tube around your head.Lay it flat around your forehead and pull the length down. Twist it in one direction to create a “rope”. Coil the rope around itself and tuck in the end.

I hope you like this simple but useful DIY. Leave a comment and post pictures of your version of he head wrap. Enjoy!
