Your favorite T-shirt has seen better days. If you can't bear the thought of tossing it in the trash, display your favorite T as art. "Everyone has a collection of T-shirts they can't bear to throw away from vacations, rock concerts, sports or hobbies," says Susan Druding, a professional quilter. If the T's that you wear represent activities and establishments you love, display them as art.
Turn your favorite T-shirt into a framed piece of art in a T-shirt display frame. Frames come in different sizes and show off your T folded neatly inside. If your local craft store does not have frames for your size, consider custom framing. A custom shadowbox highlights the T-shirt and can include other memorabilia like ticket stubs or ribbons.
Display the images cut from your favorite T's in a quilt for your bed or a throw for your living room couch. Your T-shirt quilt can be a cozy lap quilt or even a full-size bed cover. Collect as many T's as you can find and either craft this beautiful display quilt by hand, or send it off to a company specializing in memory quilts. Sites like Etsy and eBay feature quilters who specialize in homemade T-shirt quilts using your T-shirts and their design talent.
String a clothesline in a designated space on a wall and hang your favorite T-shirts from it as art. Because your T-shirts are a reflection of the things that you do, from sports teams to bars to vacation spots, their themes will reflect your tastes. Decorate a comfortable casual space with shirts you love.
T-Shirt Peg Rack
Create a decorative piece of wall art by mounting a peg rack painted to match your decor and casually hang T-shirts over the pegs. Treat the rack and T-shirts as a piece of art. Dedicate the peg rack exclusively for hanging T-shirts organized by color, size or year.
