DIY St Patricks Day Shirt

DIY Project

I love when I can dress my daughter in something unique, with a personal touch–so I decided to make a DIY St. Patricks Day shirt for her. This project is surprisingly simple for how professional the end product looks. All you need is Modge Podge, green glitter, a sponge paint brush, and a water washable marker or pencil.

DIY

First find and prewash your white shirt. Then you need to find your favorite clip art of a shamrock, I easily found mine by searching online. Trace your shamrock onto the center of a white shirt. Next is the fun part, mixing the Modge Podge and glitter. I poured about two teaspoons of Modge Podge onto a paper plate, then generously added glitter and mixed. Make sure you add enough glitter so that when you begin to paint you don’t see more white than glitter. Carefully fill in your traced shamrock and let dry. After about an hour I went back and did a second coat to make sure that there weren’t any spaces without glitter, then let dry overnight and you’re done! The finished product is a fun and personalized St. Patricks day shirt for your little ones, you could even make one for yourself!

*I haven’t had luck machine washing and drying clothing with this sort of decoration. I recommend hand washing.

    I love this idea. I think if you cover the glitter with some sort of clear paint or shellack for clothing, it can be washed inside-out in the washing machine. Check with your craft store and I am sure they can direct you to a product that would keep your design in good shape through washing.

    I use ModgePodge for a lot of my crafts, but didn’t know you could use it for such an application! Thanks so much for the idea!
