Valentine T-Shirts

We love our holidays around here!  In preparation for the upcoming Valentine's Day parties at school, I painted shirts for my littles.

Cute, right?! The best part is it is soo easy!  Here's how you can create a shirt of your very own.

1. Gather the materials.

  • Plain white t-shirt
  • Acrylic paint in seasonal colors
  • Sponge paint brush
  • Paper doily
  • Tape
  • Cardboard

2. Place the t-shirt on a sheet of cardboard to prevent the paint from bleeding through to the other side. Center the doily a couple of inches under the neckline of the t-shirt and tape into place.

3. Using the sponge brush, dab paint into the nooks of the doily.  Be sure to keep the paint within the borders of the doily.  You may need to use your finger nail to prevent it from shifting.

4. Set the shirt aside to dry.  Once dry, it can be washed and is ready to wear!
