My kid’s are growing out of their favorite clothes like it’s their job. My son loves these four t-shirts and didn’t really want to part with them. I have made him a t-shirt quilt previously and I have one for Rose and Damon in the works. These four shirts were cool enough for wall art versus a quilt though! My friend Kristen gave me this idea years ago and I’ve just been procrastinating in my usual way until I saw these shirts. I thought this was going to be a monumental task for some reason but it really wasn’t at all!
You will need art canvases. I used size 16″ x 20″ for an adult large size t-shirt. I purchased them at Hobby Lobby for around $7 for a two pack and I used my coupons so this was an inexpensive project for sure! Also, you will need a staple gun.
There really isn’t any measuring involved. Just slide the canvas inside the t-shirt and center it. Flip the canvas over and make sure everything is pulled tightly. Start stapling around the edges and try to neatly tuck the corners down.
Next just cut away the remaining t-shirt. I’m sure there is a neater way to do this but I just don’t care that much. Cut it and be done is my motto.
That’s all folks! It’s truly that easy. If I had known I would have had my entire house covered in t-shirts by now! As you can see I can’t hang a picture even to save my life. Whatever. They are on the wall and it’s off my list.
My son really likes them and I’m sure will be giving me plenty more t-shirts in the future! Thanks Kristen for the idea!
