Upcycled projects are my favorite. I enjoy using items that I already have to create something new. This is not only cost efficient, but it also teaches my children that we always do not have to buy something new. We can use items that we already have at home to fulfill a new need. Great, right?!
Previously, I shared a crafty book review of the book DIY T-shirt Crafts. It’s a great book full of projects. Today, I’m showcasing one of the projects that I created using the book– the Big Ruffled Rose Headband.
The purpose of featuring a project from the blog is to demonstrate that projects in the book ARE doable. I dabble in a variety of crafts, but I do not consider myself a master of any crafts other than utilizing the Cricut machine. So if I can do a project from a crafty book, you can, too!
My daughter had outgrown a pink striped knit shirt. It had a hole in the bottom, making it unsuitable for donation. So I repurposed it into this headband from the book instead.
I already had the supplies that I needed at home: glue, a knit shirt, a needle, thread, and a plain headband. After that, it was only a matter of following the easy step-by-step instructions in the book to assemble the headband.
This project, along with others in the book, can be made with old t-shirts that can no longer be worn or donated, with most knit clothing items that can no longer be worn or donated, or with new shirts from the craft store.
