Directions:
1. Trim shirt in 3/4" - 1" strips.
2.  Gather trimmed strips and lightly tug until strips begin to curl.
3. Optional: Keep out 1 strip, gather strips together.  Wrap all strips, tuck in the end.
4. ROCK OUT YOUR UPCYCLED TEE/SCARF

These are gaining popularity and they are so cheap, easy & quick to make.  People are making and reselling them for ridiculous prices.  All you need is 5 minutes and a tee that you are ready to part with.  When you're done, you will be happy that you didn't toss that old tee because it will be a whole new creation // accessory // conversation piece.  AND when someone compliments you, you can say with pride: "thanks, I made it"!

  1. Awesome! You should paint spray a white shirt or tie die it, and then make this scarf. Just to add the randomness of color.
