Picture thisCollecting art work can be a lifelong pursuit. Some people don’t mind waiting for the perfect painting, but sometimes you need instant art, especially if you’re redecorating a kid’s room, or a dorm room.

What kid doesn’t own a thousand t-shirts? That’s all they seem to wear. They don’t last forever, so instead of sending them to the rag bag, turn the ones that commemorate special events into “paintings.”

Picture thisForget buying expensive stretched canvases from a craft store, instead shop Goodwill’s “art” department for old pictures. You can’t beat the $.99 - $2.99 prices.

Picture thisPlay around with the design on the canvas. It doesn’t have to be centered. For example, I like the off-center placement of the Dude face.

Picture thisStaple it to the back and cut off the excess fabric.

This art collection was fast, easy to do, inexpensive and can be changed regularly! Or keep adding more for a whole wall of t-shirt art.
