Remember all those ideas for recycling old t-shirts? We’re bringing you a few more!
1. repurpose an old t-shirt into a five-strand braided headband!
2. adding a little buckle, use a four strand braid to make a unique belt.
There are infinite possibilities! You can use these new techniques to make the scarf and necklace we already talked about.
