Every now and then you just have to do your own thing. Charlotte and I embarked on our own homemade shirts last night.
For this project, we used:
- 1 child’s shirt ( Hobby Lobby, 50% off, $1.50)
- 1 adult tank (Hobby Lobby, 50% off, $2.50)
- 5 fabric paints (Hobby Lobby, .99cents)
- 1 package of fabric markers, Crayola (Hobby Lobby, $4.99 a pack)
- 1 cardboard shirt holder (Hobby Lobby, .99cents)
Total for project was $15.00
(tip: Hobby Lobby does 40% off coupons on their site if you check there)
Step #1: Put your child’s shirt inside the cardboard shape to prevent child from leaking paint onto your table. (LOL)
Step #2: Have fun and let your imagination do the designing!
This was a thumbprint animal. Basically dip your fingers and make the shape and then use the markers to add the fine print. You can make all sorts of animals this way.
Pigs, chickens, ducks, cows! And its very easy for little hands.
Now we just need a special occasion to wear them to!

This is a great idea. My son would love this. Mommy actually letting him color on his clothes will blow his mind.
Hey I found this page on Google and just wanted to say it was exactly what I was searching for! Thanks so much for providing the great content.
Oh now that is so much fun! I did that a while back (well like 2 years) to my daughters jeans, she loved them. But it would be fun to do it together 😉
Cuuuuute! Where were you at the beginning of the week when my kids were on Spring Break and I was clamoring for craft ideas? Dang. 😉
I’ll be heading out to the craft store tonight… we can do these tomorrow.
Can’t wait to see you and Charlotte in yours!
oooh I think I know what Owen and Mommy are doing next week. I really love how your shirt came out I don’t really have a “mommy” shirt and what better way to get one then make my own.
Great looking shirts ladies! I love doing projects like this. It’s a fantastic way to cover up stains on shirts and pants! It can even jazz up a pair of canvas shoes! It’s saves many shirts in this house from going to the recycle bin.
Very cute! We did this last summer and Pie loved it. I like the way you did your hands on your tank. I may have to try that myself!
I love it! I’m totally going to have to do that with my kiddos sometime. What a sweet idea!
How fun!!!! I totally need to do that with my kids – they would love that!
How cute are those. I will have to try that with mine when they are a wee bit older.
Looks like you guys had a blast do those shirts. I love the idea of the fingerprint animals on the shirts.
i actually saw it in a parenting magazine at one point. They did a lot better job then we did, but still cute.
How fun and easy! Might have to do this soon!
p.s. I want a pic of you ladies in them! 😉
I was going to put one up but I havent dried my hair today so its all funky. I will update with one this weekend!
thanks nicole! it was a lot of fun. I need to stock up on some more shirts while they are so inexpensive.
What fun…. we made shirts like that for fathers day last year. I let my son go nuts with the paints and handprints. He had a blast and the hubby got a shirt he never wears…lol
Charlotte has hers on and I swear im going to wear mine out tomorrow. LOL!
I bet Charlotte loved this! Very special!
yes and shh…….so did her mommy.
Awwsies! I love it. Haven’t done that in forever. I think I will REAL soon. Thanks for the inspiration. I love that tank… 🙂 Totally made my heart smile! 🙂
