If you’re the type of person who loves to bring a lot of things with you wherever you go, try to use a hobo bag! Hobo bags are great to carry around. They are typically large and are characterized by their crescent shape. They have long straps that you can be worn over the shoulder. These features make it easier for you to do your errands.

Here is an awesome DIY tutorial by ThreadBanger that will teach you how to make a hobo bag from an old T-shirt!

Tools and Materials Needed:

1. This is a pretty easy tutorial! Try to look for cheaper but good quality shirts at a thrift store. You can actually use the technique from the tutorial to make your own upcycled shirt! Upcycling shirts can be loads of fun. They are perfect for the beach as a cover up. If you want to create a muscle shirt, try to use large T-shirts for larger arm holes.

2. Choose interesting printed shirts for your hobo bag. Make sure that the knots are tight so that nothing will slip out of your T-shirt hobo bag. You can store any liquid-based products in Ziplock containers so that the product won’t spill out.

3. You can choose to get white T-shirts and tie-dye them so that your bag will look so perfect for the summer! Here’s how:

a. Lay the shirt flat on a table. Put your thumb and index finger in the center of the shirt. Twist the area in a circular motion, spiraling the shirt around the center point. Use rubber bands or strings to tie the shirt. Repeat the process on other areas.

b. Do the dyeing process. Wear a pair of gloves before doing this process so that the color won’t stain your hands. The dyeing process can be a bit messy so you will need to protect your working area.

c. Once you’re finished dyeing, let the colors soak through before rinsing it off.

4. Try to create more character for your DIY’d bag. Get a bunch of safety pins and create a line along the edges of your bag.

5. You can also use unique buttons or beads to decorate your bag!

1. Drawing a realistic eye can take a lot of time and patience. Try to use up every space so that you won’t have to waste fresh sheets of paper whenever you make a mistake.



2. If you love drawing anime characters or make feminine silhouettes, you can turn your creations into works of art! If you feel a little adventurous, you can try an Andy Warhol inspired drawing of a pair of eyes using bright colors!

3. Once you got the hang of making realistic eyes, you will find it easier to draw humans! Try making a pretty silhouette of a girl and add flowers and other pretty colors as the background print. This will look great on canvas bags and T-shirts! Try to look for inspiration online!

4. Watercolors can be a bit challenging for beginners. Here are some tips:

a. Use light pencil marks to create a simple outline of your desired design.
b. Make aure to keep your brush damp so that it will be easier for you to transfer the colors on your paper.
c. You can also use the wet on wet technique. Lay your paper on a surface and use a damp sponge to wet the paper. This technique creates a beautiful gradient effect when the colors come together.

5. If you’re not used to using watercolors, you can still use drawing pencils. They come in different types. There are pencils that give a lighter shade and there are pencils that give a darker shade. Play around with these pencils so you can get the hang of creating light and shadows on your drawings.

1. Spruce up your mason jar lanterns by painting them in different colors. If you are great at painting sceneries, you can paint a pretty picture on your lantern! This will look especially beautiful at night. If you are hosting a party, these mason jar lanterns will really make your decorations look extra chic!

Try to look for glass paints and follow the instructions on how to use them. Some paints require baking so that the color stays on the glass permanently.

2. If you want to use the mason jars to light up your tables, try using a battery operated LED light. These lights are safer to use especially if you’re planning to add easily combustible decorations like leaves, decorative paper or sticks.

Try to decorate your mason jars according to your preferred theme. Here are some ideas:

Spring/Easter – Try to pick some pretty blooms from your garden. The more colorful they are, the better they will be. Arrange them inside your mason jars. For easter, try to add a few boiled quail eggs and place your battery-operated light in the middle of the jar.

Weddings – White flowers are always perfect for weddings but you can also add pretty ribbons and lace. You can even make fluffy mini poms out of tissue paper!

Pretty Candle Holder – Paint your glass jars with your favorite color and then insert a candle inside. Place this jar on a small tray filled with sand or dried chopped wood to add a pretty decorative effect.
