Upcycled Tshirt Wreath

When decorating for the holidays consider upcycling materials from around your home instead of buying new.  I have a million and one old tshirts that I saved for crafting and couldn’t wait to try making an upcycled wreath.  This project was inspired by the upcycled wreath that I made for my daughters room using a bed sheet.

Upcycled Tshirt Wreath Tutorial

Supplies:  2 large tshirts, foam wreath form, and scissors or rotary cutter

Time:  1 hour for med-large size wreath

Directions:  Cut fabric strips approximately 1-2″ by 6″.  Tie each strip onto the wreath form with a simple knot.  Continue tying strips to the wreath until you fill up the entire form.  Embellish with a fabric flower. (Directions for the tshirt fabric flower can be found at Emily’s Little World blog.)  I used tshirt scraps and braided them to for the hanging ribbon for this wreath.  You can use straight pens to attach the braid to the back of the wreath.

    I love this! It’ amazing what you can do with some simple t-shirts that aren’t being used anymore. I did the same thing with some baby supplies i got from gogonatural.com, that i didn’t use any more it turned out so cute!
