7 Things to Do with Your School Tees After Graduation

There’s nothing like the feeling of discovering that college is an oasis of free t-shirts. Not much else is free, but clubs, sororities, and athletics are just dying to give away shirts from the day you step foot on campus. But what’s a girl to do with her collection after graduation? We’ve got 7 great ideas for all those extra tees you have lying around.

1. Apron

As a new college grad, you’ll be expected to ditch the microwavable mac and cheese for proper dinner parties with your coworkers and pals. This easy crafting project makes for a fun conversation starter and puts your old duds to good use.

2. Rug

If you’re really just over all those random tees you scored over the course of the last four years, make them into a braided rug for your brand new, grown-up apartment. Your friends will be dying to know where you snagged such a beauty.

3. Blanket

Not quite ready to let go of all your best college memories? This t-shirt blanket will swaddle you in nostalgia every night.

4. Pillows

Display your alma mater proudly in pillow form. Cute and comfy décor definitely remains a must after college!

5. Donate

You can always donate your old tees if you don’t see any other use for them. You never know; someone else might be inspired to follow in your footsteps one day.

6. Clothing swap

Host a clothing swap party with your sorority sisters and other college besties. We bet they’d love to steal that tee they’ve been lusting for but is no longer sold in the bookstore.

7. Wear

We see absolutely nothing wrong with wearing your old college tees. You can go casual with joggers and heels for a house party or dress them up with a skirt and jacket for a relaxed Friday at the office. Flaunt that hard-earned degree of yours wherever you go!
