Beautiful Birdcage T-Shirt Craft
In the Designer's Words: "Transform an old shirt and wire coat hangers into these gorgeous fabric birdcages. Lovely easy craft, they make a great home decoration and gift. These are so easy to make cost almost nothing and can be personalised by using a favourite old shirt. They make for a lovely spring decoration."
Using recycled crafts and upcycled home décor ideas is a fabulous and fun way to add some dimension and interest to your space. While plastic jug organizers and wine bottle crafts will always have a place in our hearts, recycled art projects that use materials in a brand new way will always top the list. If you are looking to really dress your home décor to impress, consider creating this funky and eclectic Beautiful Birdcage T-Shirt Craft! These t-shirt crafts are created using old tees, wire hangers, Mod Podge, and an old dish or cardboard.
This adorable piece of DIY home décor is perfect for those who long for a pet, but just do not have the time. Create this DIY craft, find a faux bird you adore, and hang your tweet-free friend up anywhere in your home. This project would look especially cute in a nursery or front porch, too!
