Hey y’all! I hope you had a great weekend! Since the weather has turned cool, I’ve been thinking a lot about scarves. I did a Pinterest search and found several of the neatest DIY t-shirt scarf tutorials. Of course, I have to share these brilliant ideas with you! :)

Wow! I hope you’re as inspired as I am to recycle some old t-shirts into fashion accessories and handmade gifts!

  29. I really like these, I will be making one, and great money savers.

  30. sooo cute

  31. very cool! i’ve been wondering how to dot he braided one

  32. These are great ideas and will definitely keep me me busy with the huge bag of old tees that I and the rest of the family has piled up. they will really be fun gifts for Christmas this year and as cold as it’s been so far this fall will be great additions to my wardrobe as well.

  33. I want to make a few of these the only problem is right now I don’t have any tshirts to use so I’m kind of depressed. lol But I have many plans for when i do get tshirts. I’m going to give a few as Christmas gifts this year. :)

  34. This is a great idea! Who would have thought that you could make so many cute things from a simple t-shirt!

  35. Lilliandil says:

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful gift of creativity! I checked out some of your recipes too! A lady from my church made me one of these and now I’m going to attempt to make a few of my own! God Bless and keep posting please!

  36. It is awesome idea. I can have a cute scarf and save more money. Thank you for a great idea.

  37. Help! I can’t make my T shirts roll into tubes when I cut them into strips! What am I doing wrong?

    • Hi Dorene, I’m not sure which scarf you’re trying to make, but maybe try pulling on the strips to make the edges roll?

    • I can’t get my t-shirt strips to roll either. It’s a 100% cotton t-shirt recommended in the directions. I have watched several tutorials, and I’m so disappointed. I love the scarves and want to make one. Any suggestions?

  38. I just finished making your braided scarf! It was amazingly easy and turned out awesome! I know what all the girls in my family are getting as birthday gifts this year!

  39. This is very good shoes, is worth to pay close attention to the blog.

  40. Thank-you for finding all these great ideas and putting them all together on one page!!!

  41. I try to host a craft/DIY night once in a while for a girls get together and last fall we made the ruffle scarf from Tidy Mom. It was soooo fun, soooo easy, and the scarfs are awesome and look great. We also made the felt flower to pin on the scarf. Whenever I wear mine I get tons of compliments….they never know it’s made from an old holey black T shirt!!

  42. Love the scarves!! was looking for something to make for this weekend’s Auburn game. Found it!

  43. I made loads of the ruffle scarves, and after a while the ruffle stretch out and look like long noodles. Have you figured out a way to prevent this from happening.

  44. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it
    or something. I think that you could do with a few pics
    to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this
    is great blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.
