T-shirt Bracelets

Ok, I know. The idea of t-shirt bracelets isn’t new, but that doesn’t make it any less cool. This craft is so simple even I can do it! I love the idea of upcycling t-shirts into funky jewelry especially since the arm-party trend is still going strong. This is a great way to introduce kids to the art of frugality—let them make bracelets as gifts!

TIPS

  • Use cotton t-shirts, the softer and more worn out the better
  • Discard the bottom seam, or incorporate it into your final design
  • Use nuts and bolts (literally) as embellishments
  • Sharp scissors = smiles

 

1. CUT OLD T-SHIRT INTO 1″ STRIPS
