Upcycle It! T-Shirt Headband

Get Out Those Old T-Shirts!

Hey guys! This week I thought I’d share another video tutorial for upcycling an old t-shirt into a headband. This makes an easy craft project or a great gift for friends!

Here’s what you need:

    • 1 Old t-shirt
    • Hot glue gun
    • Sharp scissors
    • A ruler

Once you’ve made your headband, you can decorate it with fabric flowers (or use green felt to make a leaf like my headband!) You can even bedazzle it with rhinestones and sequins if you want something that sparkles.

The “Three Rs” Plus Two


Meet “Repair” And “Refuse”

These two are the newest members of the ‘R’ family and just like reduce, reuse, and recycle, “repair” and “refuse” are ready to start fighting against the creation of unnecessary waste.

You probably already have the mantra of “reduce, reuse and recycle” down, but there are more Rs you can add to your routine. The Solid Waste Management Coordinating Board (SWMCB) of Minnesota has created a great list of more ways that you can make sure less stuff ends up in the garbage.
