Memorial Day Weekend…yippeee!!!! It is that time of year, the red…white…and blue time that is. Memorial Day is quickly followed by the Fourth of July! Here is a quick and easy way to up-cycle an old t-shirt into a festive masterpiece fit for the grandest of parades. It is shown in patriotic style but could be done in any color theme for any occasion.
You only need a few things…buttons, embroidery floss, HOT glue (Ad-tech of course) and ribbon.
Make the ribbon flowers with button centers using your HOT glue. It works best to do the ribbon part first and then add the buttons at the end. Then sew them and additional buttons around the neck of the shirt.
If you want to go button crazy, you can sew red, white and blue buttons all of the shirt to look like polka dots. If you like the shirt and you want an additional patriotic button craft idea to upcycle these denim shorts, check it out here!
Happy Creating Patriotic Love!
