Father's day is just around the corner. So, the kids and I decided to make Chris a personalized t-shirt. This simple Father's Day DIY gift is easier than it looks.
- Black or Dark T-Shirt
- Contact Paper
- Spray Bottle of Bleach (You can even use a spray bottle like you find in the travel toiletries)
- Cardboard (Optional)
- Gloves (Optional)
1. Trace your child(ren)'s hand onto the contact paper.
4. If putting prints on both the front and back, protect the hand prints by putting cardboard in the t-shirt, or like me: turn inside out, put contact paper on the hand areas, turn right side out again.
6. I wanted an abstract look with most of the shirt covered. You may decide less is more. If you're cover the whole shirt, be sure to get it in all creases: including the armpits. Also lookout for a 'dividing line' where the shirt naturally folds in half along the sleeves and torso.
I just love how well the hand prints come out.
This is a very practical Father's Day gift. It's a great work shirt because hey, it's already stained. Or it's a great sentimental piece to wear with pride. A great variation on this project would be to use a bleach pen and add dates or names to the hand prints.
Don't give dad another tie for Father's Day. This Father's Day DIY T-shirt will last for years and remind him of the little hands that touched his Heart.
