10/31 | Crafts You Can Make from Old Shirts

Have you ever thought of taking old shirts and reusing them for a special craft? It’s possible! In fact, we have rounded up some amazing crafts you can make from old shirts! From t-shirts to sweatshirts to special shirts you want to hang onto as memorabilia, we have some great ideas here for you. 

If you don’t have the right color shirts for your project, don’t worry – you can always dye them! Want to make one of these projects but you don’t have any shirts at all? Well, you could always buy some new ones. Plain white t-shirts are pretty cheap and you can make them any color you want. Don’t forget about thrift stores, though. They’re a great place to find shirts for your craft project and you’ll be helping to recycle at the same time!
