Remember that episode of Seinfeld where Jerry laments the fact that his favorite yellow t-shirt, “Golden Boy”, is dying? (Here, I’ll jog your memory.) “Golden Boy” goes to t-shirt heaven and is replaced by “Baby Blue”, but if Jerry had been a little more DIY, he could have kept the spirit of “Golden Boy” alive. How, you ask? By reusing the tee to make some super-cute and super-comfy home decor! I know a lot of my favorite t-shirts tend to “die” in the summer when I am wearing them more often and I thought you might relate. So, don’t cry — gather up your threadbare Golden Boys and get inspired by these t-shirt crafts I dug up on Pinterest.

t shirt pillow

This t-shirt pillow from Chez Larsson via Apartment Therapy is perfect for either well-loved graphic tees or the souvenirs you’d rather admire from afar than plaster all over your chest. And I bet it’d be so soft to cuddle up with on the couch.

 

t shirt art

Sure, old tees can get second lives as hand-me-downs, but they can just as easily become art, as in this kids’ room from Country Home. Canvas stretcher bars and a staple gun were used to “frame” all the artwork shown, but I imagine this would also work in a fabric hoop. You could even mix and match both shapes to create a t-shirt gallery wall!

 

t shirt blanket
Got a sports fan in the home? This t-shirt blanket by Justine at You’re So Martha is the perfect way to use those team shirts and jerseys that should be, shall we say, retired. (Not a sports fan? Think concert tees.) If you have a sewing machine, this project will be a breeze.

t shirt pom poms

Did you know you can make pom-poms out of practically anything? It’s true. Tissue paper, cupcake liners, anything. And now you can add t-shirts to the list, thanks to the ingenuity of Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous. Hang ‘em on your door for some welcoming decor.

t shirt rug

There’s nothing like the comforting softness of a classic cotton tee. What if you could have that same feeling under your feet, as a DIY rug? Bliss! Head over to Monkeys In My Bed for all the instructions.

Which of these t-shirt crafts suit you to a T? And do you have any suggestions for household items to transform into cool crafts? Leave them in the comments here!

  3. I was just looking for this information for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative web sites in top of the list. Usually the top websites are full of garbage.

    There are lots of crafting projects that we can try using fabrics, I have tried the pillow t-shirt before and it's kinda cute. I will try the DIY rug next weekend.
