19 Cool DIY Ways To Update Your T-Shirts For Spring

The early days of spring, when it’s still cold and dreary, always makes me daydream about the warmer days I know are coming (that still feel so far away) and the clothes I’ll be able to wear once I no longer need to cover up in layers of sweaters and jackets. Spring weather means new clothes and new trends, which is awesome, but also not cheap. If you’re not into the idea of wearing the same old stuff you’ve been wearing the last few months, but you don’t have a lot of cash to spend, you’re not totally out of luck! Gather together your old t-shirts and start a little DIY upcycling.

There are so many cute little projects you can do with t-shirts that either don’t fit great, are kind of falling apart, or are just looking a little bit too wintery for your taste. You can turn them into something that looks so trendy everyone will ask where you bought it, or just make them into warm weather basics instead of cold weather basics. Most of the DIY projects below are easy enough that even beginners will be able to do them (no sewing needed!), while others are a little more on the complicated side. There’s something for everyone, so check out these cool DIY ways to update your t-shirts for spring. Even if you’ve never tried a crafting project, you can definitely do these!
