T-shirt Rug

You’ll need old T-shirts and burlap. Cut the t-shirts into thin strips, and weave into the burlap, tying each one.

In this sample, there are approximately 1700 of these 1/2 inch by 3 inch strips. They were woven in at random. The rug edges were finished with the T-shirt hems.


Bicycle Rim Clock

It’s time to ride! Your favorite bike rider will love this addition to his or her room.


You’ll need:

  • old bicycle rim
  • large plastic numbers
  • clock kit
  • spray paint (optional)

Clean the rim as needed. Spray paint the numbers and when dry, attach to the rim. The center was sprayed too here in the pic.

Follow the clock kit instructions to make this thing come to life!

Radio Flyer Toy Car Storage

Cut a backing board to fit the inside of a wagon (wheels and handle removed, of course). Add shelving with lips to keep the cars from rolling off. Secure all together with screws and hang where little hands can reach – or up high where little hands cannot reach to preserve dad or grand-dad’s collectibles!!
