DIY: Repurpose Old Tshirt To Make a Cactus Throw Pillow

at 12/09/2017 0 comments
I've been raving cactus and succulents these past few months now and I keep on thinking of doing a room makeover and I want to make it a cactus and succulent theme. I'm not planning to do this in a hurry because I don't have the luxury of time. I still have a morning job and I need to do a lot of readings. Anyway, without further ado, here's how I repurpose my old shirt into a cactus throw pillow.
