The creative folks at the Howcast YouTube channel shared dozens of ideas for turning an ordinary T-shirt into a work of art.
Use fabric paint on your T-shirt to create a fabulous work of art or to write an important message to the world. Young ones can just splatter paint for their own customized shirts.
Pick up a tie-dye kit at a craft store, or do it yourself with some dyes and strategically placed rubber bands.
The 1980s movie Flashdance had cool people everywhere taking scissors to their best T-shirts. Grab a pair of scissors and start cutting. Turn short sleeves into cap sleeves, butterfly sleeves or no sleeves at all -- or change your crewneck tees into V-necks with just a snip. Leave the neckline unfinished for an edgy look, or finish it off with some colored thread.
Go for the corset look by cutting two rows of small holes in your T-shirt. Lace your shirt up with ribbon, shoe laces or strips of leather.
Add beads, buttons, sequins, crystals, patches, fringe, lace, bows, glitter or anything you may have sitting in your catch-all craft bin. Go punk with leather strips, spikes, zippers, safety pins and a few ripped holes.
There is no right or wrong with this craft project. Experiment, and have a blast!
