If you’ve been reading my blog, you may have noticed that I make a lot of things with items from the Dollar Tree, like this bowl and this easel. During one of my recent visits to DT I found a lot of nice quality T-shirts, and for $1 I couldn’t pass them up. This is my first completed project: a fun gum ball shirt with balls that move!
When the image is complete, you’ll need clear vinyl, and colorful beads.
I traced the vinyl to cover the white part of the gum ball machine and cut it. I then stitched around the edge, leaving an opening at the top. After I’d filled it with beads I sewed it shut.
There you have it! A fast and frugal way to refashion a plain t-shirt!
