I ran (yes literally, since the kiddos and hubby were in the mini waiting for me in the parking lot) into the Dollar Tree the other day. I was looking for scarves to make some ruffle scarves, but they only had one left! Grrrr. I noticed some large stacks of youth size T-shirts on a shelf and quickly rummaged through to find as many white larges as I could. Didn't know what I'd do with them, but for ONE DOLLAR? Something for sure! I decided to try painting one and losing the T-shirt look.
|To get rid of that T-shirtish look, I first cut off the neck, leaving one row of stitching. I also did this around the sleeves, but just chopped the whole him off.|
|Then I traced around an oval shaped bowl with a pencil and cut along the line.|
|Now here's what we've got.|
|Then I mixed up a dark purple with some acrylic crafting paints and used a light greenish gray and stenciled this design on, overlapping them slightly.|
|This is how it looks BEFORE I washed it.|
What do you have to lose? Pull out an old shirt, or hit up Dollar Tree, and try it out! Let me see what you come up with!! :)
