June 2015 Up-Cycle: Spray Paint Tank Top/T-Shirt

Materials:

  • Spray paint (We used Rustoleum Paint Plus satin paints in the colors Eden and Aqua)
  • Shirt
  • Doily

Note: Whenever you paint on a shirt, it’s a good idea to wash it first to remove any sizing. After it’s dried, iron it flat so you have a smooth printing surface

Directions:

All you need to do is put a piece of cardboard inside your shirt (to protect from bleed-through), lay your shirt in the grass or on a surface you don’t mind getting paint on.

Grab the most lovely doily you can find, and lay it wherever you want it on your shirt. We didn’t secure it down with anything.

 

Spray the top half with the 1st paint color, and the bottom half with the 2nd paint color.

Let it dry. Wash it. Wear it.
