T-Shirt bracelets are my frugal DIY gift I made for the young ladies in my small group at The Edge this year. They were fast, simple, cheap, and trendy which is exactly what I was looking for since I needed 12 of them. All you need is an old T-Shirt and some hot glue. I also added in a strand of craft pearls which I had laying around from our wedding decorations. If you don't have a T-Shirt you want to cut up you can find them at any craft store in just about any color. I actually found mine at Menards for $1.50 each. A Men's XL can easily make 20 bracelets depending on the thickness you desire. According to my figures, I spent less than 10 cents a bracelet. If that's not frugal I don't know what is!
|Step 2: Hot glue the last few overlaps of material when you have finished braiding. At this point you should have a strand of braid with the ends glued together so it doesn't unwrap.|
|Step 3: Hot Glue the two ends together to make a bracelet. You may want to cut a strip of T-shirt to cover up the overlap area. Glue it in place.|
|There you have it. 5 minute T-Shirt bracelets!|
