Believe it or not, this necklace was free and it was made out of an old t-shirt.

Doesn’t look like it, does it? All you have to do is find a previously loved shirt that is in gently used condition and get crafty. Any color or print works, but generally, the best necklaces are made from simple prints or plain colored t-shirts. The shirt, a pair of scissors and 15 minutes are all that you need. You can string beads or buttons to add a little bit of flair to your necklace, but nonetheless, it’s your necklace and you can be as creative as you want.
