How to Make a Beaded T-shirt
- Pony Beads
- Disappearing ink marker
- Scissors (if you do any amount of crafting, you really need this rotary cutting set – It’s good for everything!)
- Optional Image to transfer and Transfer paper
*If you are adding an image to the shirt, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the transfer paper.
Step 1: Cut off the bottom band of the t-shirt.
Step 2: Measure up 3 inches from the bottom of t-shirt, Mark the 3-inch line with disappearing ink fabric marker.
Step 3: Use marker to draw 1/2 inch increments at the bottom of the t-shirt.
Step 4: Use scissors or rotary cutter to cut a fringe along the bottom, up to the 3-inch mark.
Step 5: Add 3 to 5 beads to each piece of fringe.
Step 6: Tie fringe in a knot.
Step 7: Give the fringe a little tug to help stretch the fabric (but not so hard that it makese the knot smaller thatn the pony bead opening.
You are done, now your little princess (or you) can wear your masterpiece!
