Use 4 beads rotating colors on each strip (Strip one yellow, orange, yellow orange; strip two orange, yellow, orange, yellow) and tie a knot at the end so the bead doesn’t fall off.

You can also bead the bottom of the shirt. Be creative and do your own designs.


  1. This has been most helpful. I have always wanted to make a tee shirt with the pony beads but was unsure of how wide to cut the sleeve strips. This shirt is such a cute idea.
    I have a local tee shirt from a band I want to put beads one. I plan on using red, white and blue as those are the colors in the picture on the front of the tee shirt the band
    chose for their guitar. Thanks for being so helpful.

  2. Cute shirt – great idea!!!! It would also be cut to use orange, yellow and white beads on the sleeves and hem – candy corn order of course!!!
