No Sew T-Shirt Scarves (As seen on Pinterest!)

As much as I love Pinterest, sometimes I feel like the crafts that look so easy don't always turn out as cute as they look in the pictures. When I saw this scarf pinned to one of the boards I follow, I thought it was too cute to be true. I had to try it.

This was one craft that actually turned out the way it looked in the pictures and I was super excited! I hate spending money on pricey accessories so I was pumped to spend exactly $0 on this scarf!

Here's how it works:

I took a super old t-shirt that was just sitting in one of my drawers. It was an size XL that I used to sleep in so I wasn't sad to see it go. I cut it just below the sleeves.

Once I cut it, it looked something like this:

You're almost done!! Next, I cut fringe into the bottom of the shirt.

Then I pulled the fringe to stretch it out and added a few knots here and there to add character.

 And that's it! It only took me about 10 minutes to do! Cute right? :)

And now I have to tell you about another cute scarf made from a t-shirt. I found this pin here. I'll be honest, for a no sew craft this one really did look too good to be true so I didn't bother taking pictures of the process because I honestly didn't expect it to work. Well much to my surprise it actually turned out quite well! The only thing I wish I would have done differently is cut my spirals a little bit thicker. But it isn't bad for something I didn't expect to work!

Stay crafty, my friends
