Cheap DIY Silhouette Shirts


I absolutely love the look of these awesome shirts I made for my kids and I. There are tons of tutorials on screen printing and what not but they are all pricey and can cost quite a bit by the time your done. So the solution is to find a better way to get your personalized look on your shirt. 

I had this great idea as soon as I found Tulip Fabric Spray Paint! All you need to do is make a stencil and spray the shirt. Well first I made my daughter this one:

I made myself one with a big buck head to and it looks wicked cool. And then I made my oldest boy this one: 

They are really neat looking, and they are as simple as:

  • Find a picture you like the silhouette of
  • Cut it out
  • Glue it to the shirt using washable school glue
  • Spray with Tulip Fabric Spray Paint
  • Let dry for 4 hours
  • Turn it inside out and wash it
  • Wear it
Boom your done. Now you can create numerous new looks with one bottle of paint and some cheap shirts. I found a few of mine at Walmart for $3 each and second hand stores for $1. The bottle of spray paint was just under $10 and can make lots of shirts.
