What you’ll need:

  1. 1 t-shirt
  2. Ruler
  3. Scissors

What to do:

  1. Lay the T-shirt flat and cut three 1 ½” to 2”- wide strips spiraling off the bottom.  Each strip should be about twice the size of your waist.
  2. Knot the three long strips together at one end.
  3. Secure the knot to a pillow or the arm of a chair and braid the three strips together.  To braid, alternate bringing the side strips over the center strip, moving the center strip to the side.
