Embellished T-Shirt

Since I don't have work tomorrow because of the weather I decided to stay up late and craft! I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but after looking through some old photos on my phone I found one of a shirt I had seen at Macy's. The shirt had buttons all over it and was pretty cute; however, it was also $35.00. I decided I could make my own. 
I searched through my closet and found this old yellow shirt from wal-mart that I think I have worn MAYBE once. 
I sorted through a bunch of different buttons I found at JoAnn's earlier this week. I picked several and then placed them on the t-shirt here and there. I then sewed each button on (this took some time) and TADA...a new t-shirt! 
Total Estimated Costs

T-Shirt     $3.00 (old but is original price)
Buttons    $0.25  ($3.50 for a box of 200)
Thread    $0.10
Felt Pin   $0.40 (felt scraps + pin on the back)
