If you guys are anything like me you have bins full of old clothes waiting to be brought to good will. Or if your even more like me you’ve had bags of clothes in the trunk of your car for the past month that you keep forgetting to drop off to goodwill.
Before I had my son I absolutely LOVED clothes shopping and have collected alot of pieces with pretty prints that I have trouble letting go of because I truly love them. I happily give away clothes all the time there’s just those few pieces I can never seem to part with.
The fact of the matter however is that these clothes just don’t fit my post baby body and probably won’t again (which I’m not mad about.) Because I do love the prints and textures on them I decided to frame some of my favorites and wanted to share a little tutorial with you here. I plan on doing this again later on a larger scale with my wedding dress.
I love this idea because it adds beautiful pattern and texture and can be mixed up in so many different ways to fit so many different styles. I’ll get into some more ideas later on in this post!
I chose this shirt because I love the color and the texture. It also had a pretty large hole in it so I wouldn’t be able to donate it regardless.
I grabbed a frame I already had that had a thick white mat. I definitely think a mat pulls this look together and make it look a little more “done.”
Next I just positioned the mat in a couple different places on the shirt to see where I wanted it in the frame.
Then I just cut a wide area around the area that would be showing in the frame. I cut the area wide so that I gave myself room for error and to make it easier to adjust when I put it in the frame.
Next I just popped everything in the frame and adjusted it until it looked like it was in the right position. This part took a little trial and error but it wasn’t bad at all.
Secure your frame and your done!
This could be worked into so many different decor styles. It would be really cool to group a bunch of these with coordinating patterns and colors on a gallery wall. Or use old band tees grouped with some prints. Or do a large scale piece of art with a dress or larger article of clothing.
Do you guys have any clothes you can’t wear but can’t seem to part with? Let me know in the comments below!
