Upcycled Patriotic Wreath

This t-shirt sheet had seen better days but I kept in the linen closet because I just knew I could use it for something. Surely, I'm not the only one who keeps sheets with holes in hopes of a cool project!
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $5 Difficulty: Easy

This t-shirt sheet was destined for the trash! It had several holes and was stretched beyond belief!

I snipped through the elastic on one side and ripped the fabric until I reached the other side.

I tied strips of the sheet around a floral ring with a simple crossover then a twist.

After twisting each tie, I scrunched the fabric to meet the previous tie on.

For my hanger, I used a pair of jeans my son had outgrown. I cut two small snips in the bottom then ripped upwards, creating a raw edge on the side.

What project would be complete with hot glue? I used it here to adhere my denim hanger.

I also used it to attach a lace bow.

That same lace made for a great hanger in the back.

    No, you're not the only one who saves holey sheets or old t-shirts. I just made a tote bag out of an old t-shirt. Love your idea!

    I want to try this in green for St. Paddy's Day. I made a red, white and blue one out of hankies last year.

    Canada's 150th birthday is coming July 1st. This would be great in red and white. Happy Birthday Canada
