When you outgrow your clothes, or simply get tired of them, there’s plenty of DIY options to give them another use!  Whether it be turning your old t-shirts into a quilt or an old sweater into a scarf, giving them new life is always a fun and creative craft to do when you have the time!  Here are 3 recycle DIYs for your old clothes and accessories. 🙂Chelsea Crockett - DIY Jeans

  • If you have an old pair of jeans that you don’t wear anymore, give them a makeover!  Styles of jeans change so often, so if you have a pair that are out of style, why not trim them up like the picture on the right?  All you have to do is take some chalk to mark the scallops in the right place (you can even use a small Dixie cup to get the right curves).  Then, make the cut!
  • If you have a plain old colored shirt or tank, try out reverse tie dye!  If you know how to tie die, it’s basically using bleach instead of colored dye.  Look up different styles you can make with where you put the rubber bands and go to town! 
  • Maxi skirts have gone in and out of style over the past few years.  If you have one that you never wear anymore, you can cut it up to make it into a sundress or a swimsuit cover-up.  Depending on the material, try it out for yourself!

Have you ever tried one of these before?  Let me know below how yours turns out!

Making money is always nice, right?  Especially if all you have to do is get rid of some of your old clothes!  There are several different apps and organizations that are perfect for making a little cash off of clothes you don’t wear or need anymore.  If you’re interested, keep reading to find out how! 🙂Chelsea Crockett - Poshmark

  • Consignment Shops.  If you have nicer clothes and accessories that you never use anymore, such as designer or high-end brands, you can sell them to these shops for a pretty decent profit!  They’ll then resell it for a higher price, but at least you get a good amount of money back. 
  • Plato’s Closet.  If you have tons and tons of clothes you want to get rid of instead of just a single item, you can take boxes full of clothes to Plato’s Closet and see what they’ll take off your hands.  Sometimes they’ll send back a lot of what you’re trying to drop off, but other times you’ll make a pretty good profit off of it.
  • Poshmark.  If you’re looking to both sell some items and purchase some for yourself, Poshmark is the app for you.  You can pick your selling price or even trade other sellers for items you’re interested in like the picture on the right.  You might as well check it out!

I hope this helps you declutter your closet and make some money at the same time!
