DIY: Recycled T-shirt Scarves

Amanda Harris

By: Amanda Harris

Over the years I have collected an overwhelming amount of t-shirts. I always welcome new ones with open arms, but I never want to let them go. I have an entire dresser full of them! Since I refuse to throw any of them away, I decided to turn them into something else I can wear, like scarves. I wear a scarf every single day, and it only takes 5 short minutes to turn an old t-shirt into a new scarf!

 
 

What you will need: 
XL t-shirt (the bigger, the better)
Scissors

Step 1:  Cut the t-shirt straight across the top from underneath each sleeve. Then, cut off the bottom hem. 

 
 

Step 2: Cut fringe from the bottom about 5 inches through both thicknesses, leaving 1⁄2” in between each cut. 

 
 

Step 3: Pull on each strand.

 
 

Step 4: Open up the t-shirt and put on your beautiful new scarf!
