HAPPY EARTH DAY!! If your family is anything like mine then t-shirts rule the roost! My hubby used to work at Gamestop and was given a new t-shirt every month or so. He wasn’t supposed to wear them after the promo period. So we have tons of t-shirts that mean nothing to us!
The bad thing about these t-shirts are often the large graphics for video games. The good thing is the amount of material that can be recycled into a new t-shirt creation or accessory. I have dabbled in a few creative things found on pinterest such as a necklace, brooch, and plan to make some more projects soon.
10 Fabulous Ways to Recycle a T-shirt:
