DIY Valentine’s Day T-Shirt!

My little Valentine has her heart set on wearing hearts to school this V-Day (naturally). After some internal deliberation, I decided that this would be the perfect time to show off some of my DIY skills. I am proud to say that I am starting a little early this year and leaving myself more than enough time to make a Gap run if it doesn’t go as planned.

In my DIY research of the past, I came across a creative dynamo’s painting technique using a pencil eraser head. I immediately pinned it onto my “I Can Do That” board. With high hopes, I referred back and decided that this was the perfect way to paint the perfect heart onto my sweetheart’s Valentine’s Day t-shirt!

What you need:

  • Plain cotton t-shirt
  • Acrylic paints (red, light pink & dark pink)
  • A pencil with an unused eraser head
  • Heart template/stencil
  • Scissors (to cut out the heart template)
  • Supplies for DIY Eraser Painted Valentine’s Day Heart T-Shirt

    What to do:

  • Cut out a heart template
  • Center the template on the t-shirt
  • Trace around the heart lightly with a pencil
  • Dip the eraser into the paint color of choice
  • Fill in a 1/3 of the heart with dots in each color
  • Let dry and dress up your little heart breaker!
  • Valentine’s Day heart t-shirt steps
