DIY Graphic Tees

I have been eyeing all the really cool styles with Graphic Tees.  I like the relaxed feel that they give to an outfit.  I have collected some ways to turn a frumpy tee into a polished look!

Plus, I have Three ways to create your own graphic tee for el cheapo!

Now CREATE Your Own

1)  Here is my First DIY graphic tee idea that I used from the inspiration above.  I found a great image that I like and printed it out on Iron-On transfer heat paper that you can buy at any craft store or Walmart.  It's so easy.  You just print out the size and iron it on your tee.  Voila!!



2)  Another idea is using a fabric marker or a sharpie to draw on your tee.  Just tape your shirt down over a piece of cardboard so it will be tight.  Then either free hand your drawing or slip a print out of your pattern in between the cardboard & tee.  Here are some pretty cool ideas for you & your sharpie:

3)  The last way is to stencil or stamp on your design.  Here are some ones that I like.

    1. And what's so cool is that you could do one for anyone of all ages. I bet the boys would look super cool with a batman design.
