WAIT! Don't throw that shirt out just yet...

As you know, I'm in the process of moving. With moving comes packing and going through all of your belongings. The majority of my time was spent in my closet... riffling through old high school and college shirts and hard rock cafe t's from vacations. Of course, I couldn't part with any of those. Although, I did find a few that I could spare for a few crafts!

Little did these t-shirts know that they were about to experience a second life. Lucky them!

First, I googled "t-shirt craft" and found this tutorial on Whole Living. It even comes with a little video and everything. I would have watched the clip, but I have very s-l-o-w internet so it would have taken a century.

seems easy enough!

B/W to hide my sweat from the 100 degree temps

I got fancy with mine and added a flower pin. This was easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy.

I also found other fun scarf options on The DIY Dish, but I didn't create any. I think YOU should.

Who doesn't love an adorable flower to be on display in their living room? Well, I am pretty sure I speak for everyone when I say everyone loves having adorable flowers in their living room.

A Little Lovely Blog posted a tutorial on creating flowers from t-shirts. All you need is some sticks and t-shirts! (The tutorial has other materials but all you really need are sticks and shirts!)

While I was hot-gluing my flower to the stick, I became entranced by a fight that broke out on One Tree Hill. I accidentally broke my brand spankin' new stick!

 Good thing the stick was free! Also, good thing it's a stick and it doesn't really matter if it's broken. These are my kinds of crafts. 

A little glue and nobody can tell!
Last but least, Let Birdz Fly has a tutorial on creating a necklace from two shirts. The finished product looks pretty fantastic, but I ran out of shirts. I'll have to raid Andy's closet before I tackle this project!

Do these crafts make me green? Or just someone who likes to cut up their clothing?
Ponder that one.


  1. I love the necklace you made, that turned out great!

  2. Thank you! It was a fun project. I made a few more flowers to display in my living room.
