DIY Graphic Print Shirt


This DIY is a super easy way to add some character to a plain shirt. This project was inspired by P.S. I Made This Printed Jeans. Since this was my first time using fabric paint I decided to keep it simple, but I’m definitely going to try this again with a more intricate pattern. I love the textured effect the sponge gives.

The Supplies

Plain Shirt
Fabric Paint
Piece of cardboard

The Steps

Draw the outline of whatever shape you want to imprint on the sponge. I (obviously) decided on a heart.

Cut out the shape.

Place the piece of cardboard in between the shirt so the paint does not soak through to the back.

Take the fabric paint and apply it evenly on your sponge shape.

Press the sponge down on the shirt.
Repeat, evenly reapplying the paint to the sponge when necessary.

Optional: Once I was finished I added some dots of gold coloured fabric paint.
