This is a great, fairly easy way to uniquely personalize a shirt! My friend Brooke, co-owner of the fabulous Uptown Kids sale (a twice yearly consignment event held here in Fresno), came up with this idea and I have to say it seems to have worked out well!
First she decided that she wanted to rock a fun and unique shirt with her business initials... UPTK.
Tank top style shirt (or anything you would like personalized)
Cardboard shirt form-Tulip has one called a Fashion Form
Tulip brand fabric spray paint (your could use several colors if that suits your fancy)
Vinyl - cut using the Silhouette machine
- Choose a font and size that will work well for the letters of your shirt, then cut out your vinyl using your Slihouette, Cricut, or trace and cut with scissors.
- Peel letters out of vinyl and place on your shirt
- Cover your work area and spray fabric paint liberally around the stuck-on letters and around shirt until you have the desired effect
- Peel off vinyl lettering and enjoy your creation!
- Wouldn't this be a great craft for a kids party or camp?
- I thought the spray paint gave the shirt a cool effect and you could have a variety of outcomes depending on the amount of spray you want to use.
- The vinyl worked really well and provided nice crisp lines... no bleeding paint!!
- Add some spray glitter for a little more pizzaz!
