How to: Make Your Own Embellished Shirt

Decorating your own t-shirts is a lot easier than you think and is super fun! With a bit of creativity, some craft supplies and glue, you can customize any t-shirt and make it your own design. Plain cotton t-shirts are inexpensive and since you’re jazzing it up yourself, a plain white or black cotton one will do. Once you get the hang of embellishing your own t-shirts, you can even make customized t-shirts as gifts for friends and family - not only is this is a thoughtful gift, it’s easily customizable to their own style and personality.

Design Your Own Shirts!

Have a friend who’s into art? Paint or draw a picture on the front of a white t-shirt and add a bit of lace detailing to make it pretty. Want to incorporate a logo or stencil? Simply by some fabric paint or markers and get to work! You’ll wonder why you ever bought pre-printed t-shirts again!

Fabric Paint, Markers and Graffiti

Using fabric markers and paint is super easy - the possibilities are endless! You can draw your own design, use a stencil and spray paint to create something that looks like street art1980s pop art and wear it with some skinny jeans and an oversized cardigan sweater! The Tulip Fashion Graffiti Starter Kit we found at Michael’s Craft Store is perfect for creating funky designs.

Patches and Stencils

Iron on stencils and patches are super easy and are ready in minutes. They’re on there permanently and the best part is that you can customize the rest of the shirt by adding a bit of glitter, sequins or different fabrics. If you find some cool fabric around the house or in a shop, get a small piece, cut it into whatever shape you like and simply use fabric glue to stick it on the t-shirt. If you go to fabric stores, they will often give you scraps of fabric for free if you ask nicely!

Buttons, Sequins, Ribbons and Lace!

There are no rules when it comes to embellishing and designing your own t-shirt. It might help to draw a sketch of your t-shirt design ahead of time if you have something specific in mind although this isn’t necessary. Stick on a pattern using buttons, throw a bunch of sequins on one section or put a bunch of different things on at once - anything goes! A bit of ribbon and lace adds a pretty and feminine touch to any shirt!

What's the Coolest Glittery T-shirt?

  • A big rhinestone butterfly.
  • A catchy word like Rockstar or Supermodel.
  • All the ones I make myself are the coolest.
  • I think the whole trend is dumb.

How do I get them to stop?   You should probably just stop talking to them and stuff. don't sit by them at lunch and don't hang out with them at recess. they sound like they are not good friends. if it gets worse, just tell your parents if they don't already know. idk how good i am at advise. hope this helped.  ~JazzyRox

A perfect friend is one who respects your feelings and doesn't make fun of them but helps you feel better, who can drive you only slightly insane, and who will try to save you from embarrassing situations by making you see the funny side. :) :D

A perfect friend is one who is always there for you not minding how many times you chase them away. They are people who you can rely on solely because they have proved to be those you can trust.  They are also those you can call partners in crime. They are not judgemental . They are those who can die for you if the need arise.
