DIY Valentine’s Day Shirt

You’ve probably seen all the darling Valentine’s shirts online and in local boutiques, but they can be pretty pricey. So Joan and I did a little DIY for Wasatch View (video below) and then later on I made another one to put on here. They were so fun and easy to make. You can do them for yourself or the kids with different words or shapes.

XOXO Sweatshirt

I got this grey sweatshirt from WalMart in the men’s department for $6.

I got this white glittery iron-on transfer sheet from Michaels. It was on clearance for $2. If it’s not on clearance you can always use the 40% off coupons that are online.

So I just printed out the X and O on regular copy paper and then traced it onto the transfer paper. Next I cut the letters out of the transfer paper and put them where I wanted them on the sweatshirt. Next I got an old thin t-shirt to put over the letters, then I ironed over it with the iron on high.

And that’s it! It was that easy and the entire project cost me $8. You can’t tell but the letters have a little sparkle too them. You could use plain transfer paper or the glitter kind also comes in other colors.

I had some left over transfer paper so I decided to add a little heart to a shirt I’ve had in my closet for years. I think I’m ready for Valentine’s Day! Be sure to watch the video below for more ideas.
