DIY Valentine’s gifts – Personalize plain white t-shirts
Each T-shirt appears to be decorated with an abstract design but when the two t-shirts are united they form a big red heart. Isn’t it cute?
DIY Valentine’s gifts – T-shirts for a couple
You need two plain t-shirts (for a man and for a woman), scissors, red fabric paint, a large piece of card stock and paper stencil.
First, protect your work surface with newspapers. Lay the t-shirt on the table and slide the card stock between the fabric layers. Cut out the half-heart template from paper and line it up along the side of one of the T-shirts, right under the sleeve. Then stencil the heart with red fabric paint. Flip the template to paint the other half of the heart on the other T-shirt. Let dry completely.
