You’ll need:1 large (or bigger) T-shirt1 flower potFabric scissors Instructions: 1. Cut the top part of the T-shirt off, right under the armpits. (You won’t need this.) Then cut along the seams on each of the sides of the shirt, creating two pieces. Keep those aligned.2. Fold that in half lengthwise and cut along the fold, creating four pieces. Keep those aligned too.3. Fold both of the strips of two lengthwise again and cut on the fold. Basically, you want 8 equal strips. 4. Stretch each of the stripes out, one at a time. They should curl into a cord-like shape.5. Line up all of the eight strips and tie them together at the end.6. Take two strips that are next to each other, twist twice, and make a knot. Repeat until you have four knots.7. Split apart the strips you just knotted together, and tie four new knots, connecting one strip from one knot to another strip from another knot.8. Twist the final four strips around each and then tie them all together at the top.9. Nestle your flower pot into the basket!

Untwist your wire hangers and snip off the twisty ends. 2. Shape the hangers so they create two equal arches. 3. Reinforce your cardboard ends with masking tape if you’d like. 4. Poke the wires through each of the corners of the cardboard. 5. Tape the two arches together in the center creating a dome. 6. With about 1 inch of the wires through the cardboard, use your pliers to bend it flat at the bottom and secure them flat with a piece of tape. 7. Pull the shirt over the tent frame so the neck hole is in the front middle. 8. Fold the bottom opening of the shirt under and safety pin it in place. It should be taut. 9.

You’ll need: Felt (you’ll need less than 1 square-foot) 1 T-shirt 1 necklace chain Fabric scissors Hot glue gun Instructions: 1. Start by cutting out 5 small (1–1.5 inch) felt circles. Then cut out a bunch of circles from the T-shirt. The T-shirt circles should be about the same size as the felt circles. 2. Take one of the T-shirt circles and scrunch it from the center, almost like a flower. Apply a drop of glue to the point of the scrunched T-shirt circle and place in the middle of the felt. 3. Repeat until you filled the felt square — and then repeat with the remaining four felt circles. If you want, you can trim the pom poms down. 4. Glue the two ends of the necklace chain to the back of two of the pom poms. 5. Arrange all five pom-poms on the remaining felt in a wide semicircle, with the two pom-poms attached to the chain on the ends. Glue all five of them down. 6. Now trim the felt around the pom-poms until you’re left with only the necklace. Enjoy! You’ll need: 1 T-shirtFabric scissorsInstructions: 1.
