DIY- 5 Easy Steps to transform a boring white T-shirt


DIY-  5 Easy Steps to transform a boring white T-shirt
into a fun and trendy scarf


Do you have any extra shirts lying around the house? You know, those shirts that have a food stain somewhere on the front (or in my case red wine)?? Well, I saw this awesome video from the ladies over at TheDIYDish and I immediately ran to my closet to see what I should take my Fiskars to! 


MATERIALS:

  1. Old T-shirt (Any color you choose)
  2. Pair of scissors
  3. Paper plate
  4. Any embellishments you fill fit


STEP 1:  You will want to use the paper plate as your template, cut around the paper plate (I was able to get 8 circles with a large white T-Shirt)



STEP 2:  Once you have your circles cut out, you will need to cut each circle into a spiral shape (I've drawn on one of the circles for reference)





 Your circles will now look like this :)



 STEP 3:  Once your spiral "strips are cut, you will want to grab each end of the strip and give it a few firms tugs, this is to stretch the material slightly (which will cause the T-shirt to curl on it's ends)




STEP 4: Once you have stretched out all of your T-Shirt strips, you will want to lay them all on top of each other ( As you can see by the red arrow, I used an extra piece of material to tie the strips together)



STEP 5:  Add any embellishment that you want (or none at all) this is where you let your creativity run wild!! I personally used left over flowers from a project that the wonderful Heidi Borchers and Tiffany Windsor displayed in our booth at the Craft and Hobby Association show. feel free to add something that shows off your style!!


And here ya go!!! Isn't she a beauty?? LOVE LOVE LOVE




Looking forward to Helping you create projects that are to DIY for!!
