A very popular DIY indeed and one that people came back for over and over again! It is all about taking a plain top that has lost its appeal and no longer in the top position in the wardrobe. But sort of last. And never used apart from the cleaning shored perhaps around the house, alone! It is reasonably simple to create and will honestly give you so much more satisfaction wearing it. A total transformation and t-shirt makeover so to speak. Try it out with any t-shirts you might own that deserve a new lease of life.

As long as you have a little spare fabric somewhere, and a sewing machine, then do try this at home! You would be amazed at what a little something at the bottom of a t-shirt will do, totally transforming the look of your t-shirt without much work at all. You can try this on pretty much any t-shirt but preferably one that is uni-colored not to mess up too much the overall look of it. Any color will do just perfectly and will be one of the cutest things ever.

Fringe Top

We do love this little number here. It looks incredible and what can be done at home is so surprising. You won’t actually believe what you are made of until you try this at home! You’ll need a coup[le of the same top, and cut one off basically! For under 10 dollars you can get a top worth 4-5 times the money and it looks great, especially if you are heading down the beach and you are wondering what to wear. Get as creative as you wish with this one, by choosing your own style beads. If gold isn’t your thing, then by all means try any other colors you prefer and love. And all in roughly 15 minutes!

If you are not a fan of sewing then look no further! Yes, no sewing needed! This is a perfect DIY job if you are planning a trip to the seaside and wish to have something a little casual glam. Once again, this number is done in the color back but would also look great in brighter color if you brave it. Or in fact, with any motifs on it and not simply plain. Fashion is about being creative, isn’t it? So, be the fashion and create your own. You will see followers soon!

Angel Wings T-Shirt

Now, this could not be any simpler if you tried to! You will need three things. A t-shirt, an angel wings template, and a pair of scissors. That really is it. If the angel wings ain’t your thing then by all means use any other templates that may suit your personality better. The same principle will apply to the end result. This is a great way to make an overused t-shirt have a second go at life spruced back up for you to love it once again. You can do similar with all your t-shirts that aren’t exactly reinventing fashion. Give it a try and have fun with this one. Beware not to start cutting everything fabric in your home after this!

Just a little time aside from your everyday to-do lists. You can make as small or large of a bow you wish to wear that really will pop out and stand out from the norm.

If saving money is on the mind, recycling is the only way forward for us.

It is a great way to give a new life to a once loved top.
