T-Shirt Pillow Sham

DIY Pillow Sham from an old t-shirt

I love T-shirts.  I can’t stop myself from buying a T-shirt pretty much everywhere I go.  I make lots of my t-shirts into T-shirt quilts.  T-shirt quilts are great when you have a large amount of T-shirts that fit into one theme (high school, college, travels, etc.), but what about when you don’t have enough T-shirts to make a quilt?  This month, I have two projects to solve your problem.

When you only have one or two T-shirts you want to give new life to, the T-shirt pillow sham is the way to go.  This simple project will let you make accent pillow shams out of your favorite T-shirts.  They make great decoration on a child’s bed, a game room, or a man cave!

Mini paper flower wreath

This little mini wreath is a perfect desk accessory to brighten up your office through those dark winter months. Its small size is great for bookshelves, bulletin boards, or anywhere else you need a little color. Don’t have the sweet treats cartridge or a cricut machine? Find some floral paper punches you love and create your own version!

You need the following tools and supplies to create this wreath:

Cut the flowers using the Sweet Treats cartridge at the following sizes: Flower 1 and 5 at 2″ and Flowers 2,3 and 4 at 1.5″.  For Flower 1, punch two circles per flower at .75″ and 1″ with circle punches.  For Flower 2, cut the centers from the cartridge at 1.5″.  For Flower 3, punch a circle at .75″.  For Flower 4, cut the center from the cartridge at 1.5″.  For Flower 5, cut the center from the cartridge at 2″ and punch a circle at 1″.  Run the flower centers through the Cuttlebug machine to emboss.  Put all of the flowers together and adhere to the wire wreath form with hot glue.

This wreath was my first attempt at using the Cricut paper flowers.  I am thrilled with the results and now am a little obsessed with the process.  So many variations and color ways.  The possibilities are endless!  By the way, my mother has displayed it amongst her pressed glass bowls on her sideboard.  Perfect!
