Disclaimer: Ladies, you will want to check with your husbands before cutting apart his old shirts {even if he hasn’t worn them in five years and there is dust on them}. They get a little upset when they see their shirt cut to pieces on the dining room table. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! hee hee

Step one: Find an old shirt.

Step 2: Cut off the cuffs from old shirt.


Step 3: Trim cut cuff.


The cuff fits perfectly on those Eco-friendly coffee cups that you can find in any store these days!

Super cute and kinda manly!

    Thanks for the great project. I featured this today on Creative Green Living

  2. LOVE it! I’d have to look elsewhere for sleeves though – my hubby always makes that area wear out first!!!

  3. What a great idea! Goodwill probably has an awesome selection of cheap shirts if you don’t want to cut up one from your hubby’s own closet.
