I always struggle to find cute Valentine’s Day themed clothing for the boys. This year, I decided we’d make our own.
The concept came from a Family Fun shark t-shirt I made for my son’s birthday party over the summer. It’s cute, easy and inexpensive to make. You can customize the paint colors and design for a boy or girl and this is easy enough that the kids can help.
- Any t-shirt (we used heather gray)
- contact paper
- fabric spray paint (any color you like) (we used black)
Put a piece of cardboard inside the shirt to keep the paint from soaking through and to create a solid work surface.
Cut strips of contact paper and press them onto your shirt in the shape of desired design. We used a heart with an arrow and intentionally made the edges overlap and the design imperfect to get a casual, rugged look more suitable for boys.
Spray the front of the shirt paying special attention to the edges of the tape. Let the shirt dry then remove the tape. Wash inside out.
Here’s the final product.
