Gift wrap with shirts and ties! 3 clothing upcycles for Father’s Day wrapping

This gift wrap doubles as an upcycle project!

Most dads enjoy a chance to relax on Father’s Day. Put away the shirt and tie and enjoy time with the family. Well, we are taking that shirt and tie and making a Father’s Day gift they will love. As long as you’re not using his favorite shirt and tie – maybe grab one at the thrift store for this project – regardless, upcycle a fun button-down shirt and the bag becomes a gift on its own!

Kristin Baird shares three packaging revamps she created from a shirt and tie – perfect for adding personality to your gift wrap. From a bottle bag made from a shirt sleeve, to a glasses case made from a tie, you can create these simple projects that are packed with sentiment for dad.

Kristin has the step-by-step details for all three projects here.
