Shirt to Fall Artwork Refashion

Over the years, my kids have had several items of clothing that I have been very sentimental about.  I save so many of their clothes, but unfortunately I can't keep everything.  I have gotten better about getting rid of things, so I sell a lot of their outgrown clothes on Ebay.  This year as I was going through some old clothes to list, I ran across a shirt of Emily's that I just loved, mainly because it had an owl on it.  This is the shirt (purchased from Gymboree several years ago):



As I was looking at the shirt, I saw that there was a stain on it that I hadn't noticed before, so I couldn't list it on Ebay.  Since I liked the little owl so much, I decided to frame him!  I had a frame that I purchased from Goodwill (I think) and I simply cut the shirt apart, stuck it over the glass in the frame, and I had a cute little bit of Fall decor - for free.




Five minutes, and free - can't beat that!

I am itching to get out the fall decor, but for some reason I just can't bring myself to do it.  Maybe I am just needing some cooler weather to get in the mood!  I have been pinning some pretty fall stuff on Pinterest - you can see my fall and Halloween board here.
