Cute and cozy crewneck thrift upcycling project

By Megan Roshak

Whenever I thrift, I like to purchase basic pieces that I can style in a variety of ways. I purchased this black crewneck a while back from Goodwill NCW and have enjoyed the piece for layering, but I recently got inspired to change it up with a simple and cute DIY.

To flip my current crewneck, I grabbed pearl craft beads, a needle and thread. You can find these supplies at a craft store if you don’t already have them.

I started at the top of one shoulder with my needle and thread and began to sew on pearl beads one by one. I worked my way down in a linear pattern until I felt like there was enough decor for my shoulder. I then repeated this pattern on the other shoulder.

Adding the embellishments allowed me to upgrade my crewneck in a simple and affordable way. If you have a crewneck that needs a makeover, try this out! And if you don’t have a crewneck to upcycle, head to Goodwill and score a thrift find for this do-it-yourself project.
