DIY t-shirt scarf remix with your photos


the DIY T-Shirt Scarf was a big hit with all of you so i wanted to make a new video featuring all of the photos you talented people emailed, commented and tweeted to me! thank you so much for watching and doing!

thank you to Celly D, gurlwithacurl.tumblr, heycouture, Jenny Wallen Koenig, Christina and Delilah, ShannonTey and Heidi for the photos of your creations and to all of you for enthusiastic comments!

and just in case you missed the steps or want to make another one, here are they are again…

What You Need:

  • t-shirt – the larger and wider the t-shirt, the longer and chunkier your scarf will be.
  • scissors
  • decoration elements: leather, ribbon, broken jewelry, buttons, beads, etc. get creative!
  • hot glue gun

Do It!

  1. cut your t-shirt from armpit to armpit lengthwise and dispose of the top part of your t-shirt (the part with the sleeves).
  2. take your tube (the body part of the t-shirt) and cut the bottom hem off so you’re left with a tube that has two un-hemmed edges.
  3. cut 3/4″ to 1″ wide strips from one looped end to the other, leaving around 1″ uncut at the top  – watch the video for this step to see the visual.
  4. once you have all your strips cut pull on each length to stretch them out and get them to curl.
  5. gather all of your strips together at the un-cut section so you have them all together in a loop – it should look like a looped scarf at this point.
  6. cover up your uncut section using whatever you want: a piece of leather, ribbon, another piece of t-shirt, etc.
  7. add some snazz to your leather or ribbon by hot-gluing on some jewelry, beads, chain, buttons, etc.
  8. optional step: cut three strips and braid them together and then tie them back into the scarf so you have one braided length

voila! wear it long or double it. fun fun fun!!!
