Five Minute T-shirt D.I.Y.

I love v-neck t-shirts. I’d be a little embarrassed if you knew how many I have. I keep seeing those cute printed t-shirts everywhere and decided to make some of my v-necks look like those! Hope you like it! I got my t-shirts at Target for five bucks (here is the link to them), (same shirt, different colors and textures), and the paint was a few dollars too, so this entire project cost me less than $10 and I ended up with some really cute shirts!

A few tips before you start- Make sure you put cardboard in the shirt while you are painting so it doesn’t bleed through, and if you want a more vintage look, you can wash the shirt a few times and the paint will fade a little. You can even go over the paint with a fine-grain sandpaper to rough it up a little. Don’t forget to follow me on instagram and share your shirts you make!


There are so many other cute designs you could do, and I’d love to see yours! Tag me at @goodmorningloretta on instagram or facebook, or comment below with a link to your shirt! I’d love to see them!

    1. Probably since when I’ve used it in the past, it got on my clothes and stained them. I think it just might make your clothing a little stiff where you paint it.

  1. Where did you buy the fabric paint? I couldn’t find any at Joanns.
    Also, how stiff is the painted area?
    These shirts are awesome! (and I just came home from Target with some sale shirts 😀 )

    1. I got it at Target. It was in the kids craft section, in a box with 8 or so in it, made by a brand called “kids made modern.” The painted area isn’t 100% soft, but its not stiff stiff. it’s about the same as a screen printed area on a regular t-shirt.
