Fashionable Craft Idea: Shirts With Sole

Photo by Disney Family Fun

We love when kids put their own spin on their wardrobe—bright tights, wacky ties, funky hats—because finding your personal style when you’re 10 is kind of a big deal. Rather than hitting the mall to update your tween’s already-packed wardrobe with the latest styles, why not try this great “upcycling” idea and have kids put a fresh spin on an old shirt? We found this fashionable DIY idea over on Disney’s Family Fun website. The coolest part? Kids get to customize their tees using a pair of running shoes.

What you’ll need:
• A t-shirt
• Contact paper
• Cardboard
• Sponges (cosmetic wedges work well)
• Fabric paint

You’ll find the full instructions for the Shirts With Sole project on the site. Smaller kids can try this one, too, with some help from grown-ups when it comes to the prep work. Try it as a birthday party activity for a truly unique souvenir!
