So…before Halloween I was thinking about putting a scarecrow on my front porch. I headed to the thrift store and ended up buying 4 flannel shirts. (less than $4 each!) The scarecrow never happened…but instead I turned those flannel shirts into a bunch of fun diy projects! Old flannel shirts are cheap and I the variety of patterns beat our local craft store..but these projects can totally be recreated with fabric…or even if could score an fabric plaid tablecloth! Then it’s just slice and dice. first up…wreath decorations:
Then hang on a door! I even added a flannel bow!
I also grabbed just a strip and used it on this wreath.
**napkin holders–This is a toilet paper roll, cut up into pieces and scrap flannel wrapped around and hot glued!
cheap and easy way to jazz up your Christmas table!
I made an envelope back so I could swap out for the seasons! and to save on the flannel shirt, I added a solid color for the back. My cute cousin just shared her pillows she whipped up! (the red plaid was an ugly dress!) for the deer head: “I printed out the deer head and traced it to heat and bond and bonded it to my fabric and then cut it out and bonded it to the pillow, which is leftover drop cloth canvas” ***Use the scraps to wrap up your presents! Make them look pretty!
***Add a decal onto a fun sign (for the wood frame how to go HERE)
or add some flannel around foam letters for another cute sign
You could also hot glue a bow tie version
