Excuse the late night, no makeup, PJ's look I've got going on
*Disclaimer: I am no crafty, DIY goddess and most of you could probably do this better than me. But at least I attempted it and maybe it will help give you an idea of something you could make too!
Hellooo and happy Monday!! So after I posted this last week, I got a comment from the lovely Anna (whose baby is due any day now, yay!) encouraging me to try and make the sweatshirt myself that I wanted so badly! Funny thing is after I posted that saying I couldn't track it down, I actually walked into a store on Balboa Island (!) that sold them so I was able to try it on and check the price (both were bad news bears - not flattering and $110! Uhh, no thank you).
So then I really was inspired and thought maybe I could attempt it myself! I headed to Forever and found this top for $9 and then went to Michael's to get glitter spray paint that worked on fabric ($6). They didn't have any heart stencils so I printed one offline. And here was my process:
Homemade (and janky) stencil
"Reinforced" and "secured" with tape. Man I'm clever.
Sprayed multiple layers of glitter over a couple days
*Note: when they say to use a certain type of foam insert, they say that for a reason. I used a folder and the paper completely adhered to the inside of the sweatshirt. I'm still in the process of removing it all.
Glitter heart complete!!
So there you have it. My super easy, and very elementary DIY for a glitter heart sweatshirt.
Next up is making my own tutu with help from Allison, thanks to another encouraging reader comment by Bettina!
Look at you guys inspiring me to be all crafty :)
Have a wonderful day!
