25 Crafts Made From Repurposed T-Shirts - Great for Teens and Summer projects
I love taking a break from school in the summer, because I use that time to clean out closets, reorganize and do some crafting! These are all things that I normally don’t get a chance to work on during the busy school year. In cleaning out my closet, I found so many old, stained t-shirts that I needed to get rid of. Some of these, aren’t even nice enough to donate to a thrift store and I hate to toss them. There are so many fun crafts and activities that use old t-shirts, and I now have a rubbermaid tub full of old t-shirts just waiting for a new life!

I wanted to share these awesome ideas with you! These would also be great for older kids and would make some great quiet time activities at home this summer!
