Do you have an old T-shirt that you want to give a new life to, or a new one-ton shirt that seems too boring for your vibrant life? Decorate it yourself - at home, and be sure that exactly the same no one will have!

Acrylic paint and marker pens on fabric

  • acrylic paint
  • acrylic loop
  • crayons on fabric
  • chalk or soap.

Drawing on a T-shirt is the simplest and most effective solution. For light t-shirts, markers of selected colors (suitable for making contours), and paint (fill large areas, or choose markers of different thicknesses) are suitable. But only a very few markers are visible on the dark fabric, and, basically, they also have something like an acrylic contour. It is easier to take it.

Acrylic well falls on the fabric, dries quickly and lasts for a long time - enough for six months of wearing, even with regular washing. Stretch the T-shirt on anything: you can stick it with an insulating tape to the wall (only without wallpaper), put it on the mirror on the dressing table or any wide enough board - the main thing is that the fabric is well stretched. Design a shallow or soap contour of the future drawing, and then apply the paint.

You can also make a T-shirt that is close to batik - soak it in different colors, and then fold and squeeze it. Get a pretty abstraction. Dry first with a hair dryer, and then turn inside out and iron. Wash t-shirts painted in this way must also be turned inside out, at a temperature of 30 degrees and in a gentle mode, if you prefer machine wash.

Rivets, beads, rhinestones

  • material (beads, rhinestones, rivets, ribbons, pieces of colored fabric is a different texture)
  • needle and thread the color of the shirt.

Sew a tarnished image on a T-shirt with rhinestones or beads. You can change it a little, add a grotesque - for example, if the picture shows an apple, you can sew a beetle worm on it, if it's a giraffe, turn it into a pirate, add a bandage to it, put a pirate sash on your stomach, and replace your hind foot "A piece of wood. Do not be afraid to sew unusual materials - experiment!

Rivets usually decorate shoulders (you can attach them, for example, spikes, as on knightly armor or leather jackets of bikers), or a collar. But here too there are no restrictions - lay out from rivets inscriptions and drawings, paint them in different colors. And you can sew on the shirt a collar from an old shirt, making it a provocative blend of office and street style, or a few flowers made of fabric, ribbons or lace.

  • scissors
  • the fabric of another color or t-shirt of a different color.

The incisions can be very artistic, if they are not made at random. They are right through, so that you can see the skin - this is a summer version, and with a lining cloth inside, so that another color can be seen. The slits are usually made so that a very narrow (1 cm maximum) tissue section is cut out; the next, where the fabric was left, is a bit wider (by 0.5 mm.).

You can make a series of incisions on the back - uniform in length or tapering like a cone, to the neck or lower back, or you can make two series of such incisions, on both sides of the spine - they will look like styling under the wings or ribs. If you want to make a lining inside, the easiest way is to sew two T-shirts, so that one is inside the other; this is a warm option for autumn; and you can just sew under the cut a piece of bright cloth of the appropriate size.
