Inspired to Make My Own DIY Scarf

After seeing so many creative food and crafty ideas on Pinterest, I figured I'd throw caution to the wind and actually make my own DIY T-shirt scarf!


It's funny how you get' pinning' all these niffy-crafty ideas to your 'boards' and THINK you've done something really wonderful...when in reality, all you've done is sat at the computer for 3 HOURS!!! LOL!


This crafty idea was actually quick and EASY to make! Grab an old T-shirt, then watch this DIY scarf tutorial from this blog:  Shwin&Shwin.com


My T-shirt scarf was not as 'fluffy' as the one in the tutorial. I think it is because my T-shirt material is thinner. But all said and done, I'd say mission accomplished!


ALL YOU NEED IS AN OLD T-SHIRT...


AND...YOU CAN CREATE THIS D-I-Y SCARF!!!


  • To make, cut (16) 1" strips from an old t-shirt. 
  • Gather each one up individually and wrap it around your wrist to create a 'circle'. 
  • Attach the 'circles' together with extra thin t-shirt strips
  • Voila! there you have it: a DIY T-shirt scarf!
  • (It took approx. 15 minutes to complete)

There is also a DIY T-shirt necklace tutorial out there in the blogosphere...I think I need one of those too!

  2. When I saw this, I thought of all the t-shirts in my wardrobe that are reaching the end of their useful t-shirt life (ie. getting stretched or too stained) that may be able to get a new lease on life as a scarf.

  4. Very clever! I am all thumbs when it comes to crafts. But this looks like something I could actually handle!
