From Pinterest to Real Life


Finally I have my own blog post titled that.  😉  Pinterest has so many creative ideas for DIY projects.  This week I was so excited to actually try one!

This is the post that gave the instructions I followed.  Even though it was pretty straight forward, I was so nervous about taking bleach to a shirt and I welcomed the instructions.

I started with just a plain black t shirt.  Sorry for the poor picture quality.
The post recommended putting wax paper between the shirt layers to prevent
the bleach from designing the back of the shirt as well.  I didn’t have
wax paper, but I had a small box with drawing supplies in it.
I just stuck it in between the layers…

…and bleached on a design using a Clorox bleach pen…

…and let it sit.

The post said to rinse the excess bleach off using warm, soapy water, but I wasn’t sure how to do that without the bleach spreading to the rest of the shirt.  I ended up with quite large bleach blots on my design.  Finally, I decided to go for it and thankfully the bleach blots didn’t spread at all.  They rinsed right out!

And here is the finished product!

I am so pleased with how it turned out!  In fact, I’m already trying to find a time to go to Goodwill and buy more plain t shirts so I can try out other designs.  I have several ideas in my head.  🙂

All in all, it was a very fun and very simple project that turned a plain T into a cuter alternative!

  1. That’s such a fun idea! I remember trying that a long time ago and it not working out quite so well. Or maybe it was that I was younger and my design wasn’t that awesome 😛 Maybe I should try it again though! Cute design you put on yours too 😉
