DIY Upcycled Tassel Necklace. I used a shirt that was 100% silk and over 5 years old. It finally shredded in the pits! You can use what ever item you'd like, just make sure the weave of the fabric isn't too loose. If it's too loose you'll fray forever. I do have stragglies on my clothes after I wear it but I don't care, I work in a costume shop.
Shirt - you can use whatever though
Chain - I wanted a long dangly necklace, so I grabbed a long chain
Chain nose pliers - or use round nose pliers, or just whatever you have around
