Hey everybody! I hope your Labor Day weekend is going well!! My sister and I had a little crafty fun on Friday and made these great Lace Spray Paint shirts! Aren't they fun? I got the idea from the blog P.S. I Made This. I absolutely love her blog. So much inspiration!! These were super simple, took hardly any time (seriously only like 3 minutes) and were pretty darn cheap too! Plus it turns out that they are pretty darn cute and can be done in so many different ways!!
So to begin with, gather all of your supplies:
Fabric Spray Paint. I got mine as a pack of at Hobby Lobby. Originally $19.99 but I used the 40% off coupon. So it was about $12.00.
T-Shirts. All of them were about $5 each. Including the ones for my little Karissa!
Some Lace. Mine was about 1/2 yard and it cost about $4. You can use the same piece of lace with all of your shirts but you have to let the paint dry in between otherwise it gets to saturated.
T-Shirt Form about $5. I didn't use one and I wish I had. I just put some freezer paper in between and it was a pain!
Lay your shirt out with something underneath to protect your work area. (The paint tends to spray everywhere!) Lay the lace over the top of your shirt.
Choose what colors you would like to use and start spritzing them in lines across the shirt. I overlapped my lines a bit and the colors bled together to make other colors. I loved the effect. Don't be afraid to use a lot of paint! I went over my lines several times to darken them up a bit.
Carefully pull the lace off of the shirt and check out your work.
The paint says to let it dry for 72 hours before washing. Plus I ran a hot iron over the top of them after they dried to seal the paint a little.
I made one for my sister, one for me, and also two for my little Karissa and I still had about 1/2 of every bottle left!! So I also made this one too. I just used a stencil that I had already and used the same blending effect with purple, black and white. Cute Right!? I really want to try this out on a white scarf! If any of you make some of your own, I would love to see them!
