Fun Thrifty Projects

As some of you know I am a big fan of poking around various thrift shops. Just thinking about some my past excursions and the treasures I have found brings a smile to my face. I was on the Value Village web site today and I saw they have a couple of pages of projects to make with thrifted items. One of my favorite ideas is the t-shirt cork board. Its simple but its a cool idea. If you find or have a really cool t shirt that doesn't fit but can't bear to part with cover a cork board with it! How cool would a vintage rock design look in a teens room. Maybe Hello Kitty for a little girls room. Now that I think of it, I have a pretty cool t shirt from back in my Starbucks Barista days. Hmmmm.. We were always given shirts for different promotions and they were always huge on me but too small for my husband. For some reason I kept several of them and now I know what do so with them so they aren't just sitting in a drawer somewhere. I will have to put that on my list of projects to get to someday! Check out the back to school and Halloween sections for more ideas. You can download pdf files of the different projects too so that if you are like me you can save it for later. Happy crafting everyone!
