Funfetti Fringe

When I saw this tank, I fell in love, but unfortunately didn't have the $ to blow on it. Then I remembered a striped tank I bought from Target a while back and seldom wear and thought this might be a great DIY. Here's how it started out:

Funfetti Fringe

Overall, it's pretty quick and easy. The key is just cutting the seams off the bottom to make sure it curls properly. Did I mention this baby totally lends itself towards movement? Might be shredding a few more tops/dresses I believe...

such a good idea for a top! i love the second photo, so cute

Danielle said...

Interesting, because all of my guy friends that watched that movie loved it.

I can't believe they made a shirt like that for $207, when you could just go out and make one yourself that looks just as good.

Wow, what a great DIY! Totally inspired!

Lizabeth xoxo said...

Whenever I was really young, a had a pair of blouses that had fringe bottoms and sleeves. I think they were also tie-dyed as well, I wish I would have saved them! But, since I hadn't, I will just take inspiration from them... and you.
