I love how Michelle and her gorgeous little kiddo Mikhayla took an outgrown garment and turned it into something so cool and practical! This is something that you can craft for yourself, for your kids, for your office and I can't wait to get started on one myself! Check out what the terrific team of M&M created...
Hi! I have a crafty project made out of an outgrown garment to show you! Mikhayla had a cute little sweatshirt that had our favorite thing in the world on the front of it - SPARKLES! We couldn't just throw it away!
See how Michelle and Mikhayla crafted this sparkly piece into something fabulous!
We gathered up all our supplies...a piece of packing styrofoam in a nice square (about an inch thick), some craft glue, LOTS of pins, various ribbons, and our all important hot pink zebra print Duck Brand duck tape!
We cut the design out from the front of the shirt, and used some of the craft glue and pins to tack it into place on the board. We used ribbons to make a little grid over top of the design.
To finish it off, we used our trusty duct tape for a functional and pretty border.
Now she has a cute little memo board for her locker or room! The cost was literally nothing.
I had all the supplies from around the house, and the little shirt was from Mikhayla's growing stack of outgrown clothes.
You get another big thumbs up from me too! I just love this project. So perfect for holding pictures, notes, reminders... You guys were able to create something super practical while still holding onto a garment that you loved so much. This is such a fab example of how you can really upcycle anything. Kudos gals - such a fun crafternoon you both must have had making this!! xo
