Sometimes it’s hard to get rid of a favorite t-shirt even when it's gotten too old to wear. One way to continue enjoying your graphic tee is to turn it into wall art. This is an easy Do-It-Yourself project that recycles your shirt instead of keeping it hidden away in a dresser drawer.
                                                                                                                                      
All you need for this DIY project is a canvas that will fit your t-shirt design, a pair of scissors, and a staple gun. We used a 11"x14" canvas.

Directions:
1. Slide the canvas inside the t-shirt and move it around so the graphic design is centered on the canvas.
2. Pull the sides of the shirt taut around to the back of the canvas and staple the shirt into the canvas board backing. Trim away the excess t-shirt material and you're all finished!

Camping Themed Birthday Party

By J .

Calling all Happy Campers!

Camping themed parties are fun, easy and don't cost a fortune. You can have a camping party right in your own backyard. Pitch a tent, play picnic games, make s'mores and sleep under the stars. It’s a great way to make a birthday party special, even with a smaller group.

What we love about a camping themed party are all the outdoor activities. Use our free Nature Scavenger Hunt printable and set out on a hike around the neighborhood.

Another simple idea is to make DIY bandana hobo bags. Fill them with party favors that can be used while camping. The bandanas are great for Capture The Flag or Blind Lineup. Goofy String is always good for String Tag and water guns are perfect for a fun Target Shooting Contest. Have a Bubble Blowing Contest too and give your campers Bubble Gum Tomboy Tees to get them in the spirit! Flashlights, canteens, a compass and glow in the dark items are always fun party favors too. These are all easy and budget-friendly favors sure to bring smiles long after your party has ended.

How To Cut A T-Shirt Into A Tank Top DIY Tutorial

By J .
on March 31, 2016

All you need for this stylish workout tank is a pair of scissors and our Athletic Tee. In just a few simple steps you'll have a favorite go-to tank top for your next workout!

CUT T-SHIRT TUTORIAL:

Step 1: Cut the collar and sleeves off your t-shirt. Be sure to cut the seams completely off but follow them closely as you cut.

Step 2: Decide what length you'd like for your tank top and cut along the bottom of your tee, making sure to cut enough off for a 1” strip to use later as your tie. (Note: we cropped our shirt approximately 2" from the bottom hem).

Step 3: Cut a triangle down the back of your t-shirt, cutting from the collars edge toward the middle of the tee. (Note: we measured approximately 6” down from the collar and made a pen mark in the middle of the shirt where our 2 cuts should meet).

Step 4: Using your bottom scrap piece cut a 1” strip along the length of the scrap.

Step 5: Take your 1" strip and tie your shirt straps together, wrapping the strip around the straps and moving down as you go. (Note: we tied our straps approximately 3” from the top of the shirt). Once you have your desired length, tie a knot, tuck in the loose ends and there you have it!

Happy workout!

How To Cut A T-Shirt Into A Crop Top DIY Tutorial

By J .
on June 18, 2014

 

This tutorial is easy, we promise! All you need for this super cute tank top is a pair of scissors and our Bubble Gum Tomboy Tee. In just a few simple steps you'll have an adorable crop top for Summer!

CUT T-SHIRT TUTORIAL:

First, cut the collar and sleeves off your t-shirt. Be sure to cut the seams completely off, but follow them closely as you cut.

Next, decide what length you'd like for your crop top and cut straight across the back of the t-shirt, making sure not to cut the front of your tee. (Note: we cropped our shirt approximately 6" from the bottom hem).

Lastly, cut the bottom hem off the front of your shirt and make a straight cut up the middle (approximately 6"-7"). Then, from the bottom of that middle cut, make diagonal cuts up to meet the cropped back portion of the t-shirt on either side.

 

Now just tie a knot in front and there you have it!
