DIY St. Patrick’s Day T-shirt

What are you wearing for St. Patrick’s Day? Create your own DIY jersey style T-shirt with Tulip® fabric paints then head out to celebrate your festive creativity!

  1. Wash and dry shirt without fabric softener.
  2. Create and print out “ST. PATRICK’S” and “17” in a jersey style font to fit T-shirt. Place a piece of freezer paper over pattern and trace, then cut out with a craft knife.
  3. Iron pattern onto front of shirt, waxy side down to create a temporary seal. Place T-shirt form inside shirt.
  4. Use a sponge pouncer to lightly dab one coat of Glacier White onto shirt. Let dry and sponge on an additional light coat to create a vintage look. For more opaque coverage, continue to add layers of paint until desired look is achieved.
  5. Let dry and remove stencil.
