It’s no secret that I love to update and repurpose things for my home – but I also enjoy upcycled clothing for my closet. I don’t do it as often, but I’ve had the itch to do more – and I have some new great ideas flowing from the projects below!
Below are links to some of my favorite tutorials from around the web to update your clothing and accessories by repurposing items you probably already have, or can find easily at any thrift store. I hope these ideas inspire you!
**Some of these projects are mine, but the rest are from some very talented bloggers – so if you see anything you like, please click the link to their blog and show them some appreciation! And if you’d like to Pin any individual project, please Pin directly from the appropriate blog.**
