Make An Upcycled Superhero Cape


Jennifer from Craft Forest shows us how to make an upcycled superhero cape from a t-shirt in this video.  It’s really quick and simple to do and there’s no sewing required in this project.

As Jennifer says this would be such a fun activity for a kids party!  Please do cut the collar open and install velcro fasteners, to avoid any risk of choking or strangulation, should the cape get caught on something.
