What with all the T shirt yarn projects I’ve been DIY-ing (a bohemian gypsy necklace, a cushion meets dog toy meets bracelet meets necklace & a colourful necklace ), I have a ton of T shirt yarn scraps and was thinking of a good way to use them all up. And now that the sun is (sort of) out, I feel like something colourful and reminiscent of spring is called for 🙂 So let me know what you think of this beach style boho necklace 🙂
What you need
T shirt yarn scraps (not necessarily of the same colour!)
Wooden beads )you need an even number but the exact number is up to you)
Thread the wooden beads onto the elastic thread.
Once all the beads are on, tie a knot at the end of the elastic.
Line up all the scraps of T-shirt yarn and trim them so they’re about the same length. (Approximately is good enough as we will trim them again when they’re tied onto the necklace)
Fold the T-shirt yarn into two equal lengths.
Now tie it onto the wooden bead necklace: mark the middle point with you finger, place the elastic thread (the midpoint- so there are equal number of wooden beads on both sides) over the t shirt yarn, then pull the ends of the t shirt yarn through the loop (see photo below). Pull the t shirt yarn so that a tight knot forms.
Now we’re ready for summer! 🙂
