Mix Up Week Continued!

In this post I will be talking about fun accessory called t-shirts. I will be talking about how you can make these for you and your brides mates for your big day and even use these t-shirts later.

I know I am super excited to be able to wear “bride to be” and “wifey” t-shirts and to buy some for my brides mates. However, I have been looking for some to buy and it is just so expensive! This is money that I just don’t have with paying for the wedding. These are some of the t-shirts that I was interested in.

Below is a way that I found to make your own t-shirts and a big way to save money. I am going to be trying to make these over my spring break in two weeks. I will share with you the results but for now I am going to tell you what you will need and how to make these in your own home.

Things you need:

  • V-neck t-shirt
  • Printer
  • Exacto Knife
  • Fabric Paint (choose a color)
  • A dabber paint brush
  • Piece of card board

Now that you have these supplies, you can start to make these do it yourself t-shirts. Print out a word like “Mrs.”, “Bride to be”, “Wifey” or “Maid of honor” is some examples.

  1. Make the font size as big as you want it on your t-shirt.
  2. Once you print this, take the exacto knife and cut of the letters, keeping the negative space untouched like it shows above.
  3. Put the cardboard inside of the shirt so you don’t have the paint bleed through to the other side.
  4. Now put the paper onto of the t-shirt where you want to have the letters appear.
  5. Take the dabber brush with your selected paint on it and dab in the cut out space for the letters.
  6. Let it dry for at least 24-48 hors.

Now you have saved money but have cute t-shirts for you and wedding party!

Thanks for mixing it up with me this week. Please comment on your thoughts with this little change in my blog!
