    When it comes to DIY projects, we're all about re-envisioning even the simplest of supplies and turning them into something completely unrecognizable, and more importantly, something you'd actually want to wear. Naturally, we were thrilled when Grace Atwood, the blogger behind Stripes + Sequins, shared with us a brilliant way to turn those only-suitable-for-bed T-shirts into a rad fabric necklace.

    This weekly crafting pro filled us in on her inspiration for the project:

    "When I first saw these jersey necklaces by Necklush, I freaked out a little bit. Not only are the necklaces super cool and easy to wear, but they make for a great DIY project. With a little bit of patience and creativity, you can easily upcycle your old T- shirts into one (or a few) of these pretty neck pieces. In a few hours, I whipped up three of them…. Follow the tutorial and you’ll be able to do the same!"

    What's the harm in giving this easy DIY a try? You were going to toss those old tees anyway, right?
