When your mother-in-law gives you a handful of white undershirts, what do you do with them?
I think she meant for me to pass them on to the husband, but I couldn't help but keep a few for myself for a few projects. I've been wanting a shirt with gold polka dots-- who knows why-- I just have had it in my head-- so instead of hunting one down in a store, I decided to make my own. If you have a crazy desire for a gold polka-dotted shirt too, I suggest you make one too.
tee: diy // scarf: fundraiser market // skirt: H&M // bangle: thrifted // boots: ebayall you need:
- white tee (a mens undershirt works great)
- gold fabric paint (I used this brand.)
- cardboard circle template (I use a circle punch to create mine.)
- foam brush
>> If you have a white men's tee, make it a little more fancy by hemming the neckline and the bottom hem. I also rolled up the sleeves twice and stitched them in place to shorten to them.
>> Place cardboard in between your shirts layers and stencil to your heart's content.
My only suggestion? Let your shirt dry at least 12 hours before painting the other side. :) And yes, the paint will bleed through the shirt, so the cardboard is key.
Yay! New shirt! Almost free! My favorite kind. :)
Also, this is just the beginning of the white tee makeovers. I have some other ideas on how to remake a few more.
p.s. thanks for the kind words on yesterday's post. Two of my dear friends moved away this weekend and I just really hate change and my friends being far away. I just think everyone should just live in my neighborhood.
