These t-shirt necklaces are fun to make and wear in the summer. They make great projects for kids and are a great use of old shirts that are just too small. You can even braid together three different shirts for a special effect. You can pick up shirts for less than a dollar at yard sales and let kids get really creative.

These ideas are great!!! My grandkids will love making these!!! So much fun!!!
