If you have t-shirts that have been so well loved that you can no longer wear them, you may want to repurpose them in a creative fashion.
They can be turned into a plush rug! You will need a bounty of t-shirts for this project, but it will be worth it. This would make a fantastic gift for a grandmother. Imagine giving her a rug of t-shirts of her family members!
This will be time consuming, but it’s also something you can do while watching TV.
You will need:
- 80 t-shirts with similar thickness and texture cut into 1” x 4” strips
- Various shades of fabric dye
- 36” x 60” mesh rug canvas
- Latch hooks
- Needlenose pliers
Using fabric dye will make everything match, but if you want to showcase the different colors of the t-shirts, you can skip the dye.
When the t-shirt strips are prepared, you can latch hook them into a gorgeous rug!
What is your favorite homemade gift to give? Please share your ideas!
