10 Upcycled Crafts for Earth Month

10 Upcycled TShirt Projects for Earth Day

Earth Day is almost here and I bet you’d be surprised to know just how many t-shirts get trashed each year.  Just think about your own closet and how many t-shirts you’ve collected from special events, vacations, sporting events, races, etc.  There isn’t a hot demand for old t-shirts at thrift stores either.  Put on your crafty mom cape and let’s get crafting!!  Some of these projects can be done with minimal (if any) sewing skills.
