Fun Shirt Idea


Recycled DIY -Pet Bed- the one they’ll use.

I don’t have pictures, but I have been doing this awesome, useful craft for years. Ever notice how your pets jump on your laundry, clean or dirty? Next time you clean your closet, take an old pillow case/sweater/t-shirt and use it as a base for your pet bed. If you use a sweater/t-shirt, just cut the arms off and you are good to go. If you wand to get fancy, you can sew the holes shut, or if your low on the craftiness, you can use ye old glue gun to glue said holes shut. Somewhere is this process, you just stuff the pillowcase/shirt with old clothes. Instant pillowbed; free, but most effective.


Want to up the ante? Just sleep on the clothes first. Now, they smell like you and are ready to escort your beloved pet to pet nirvana. You can even leave a patch open and wash/sleep on the clothes again to have them stay keen on your scent.

How to reuse those holiday cards.

Let me tell you a story. Once upon a time, my neighbor said to me, “I have some extra Christmas cards I’m going to throw away”. To which I replied, “I will take them”. Then this neighbor bestowed upon me hundreds and hundreds of Christmas cards.

The moral of this story is that I now have a DIY craft project. How do you reuse those holiday gift cards? Bookmarks!

What Do You Need:

1. Packing Tape

2. Hole punch

3. Ribbon or pretty string

4. Scissors

5. Cards!

Ruler is optional, but recommended.


How to do it:

1. Cut or fold your paper skinnier than your packing tape.

2. Cover both sides with the packing tape.

3. Punch a hole a decent distance from the top.

4. Make a pretty string (but not super thick).
