Confession: I'm accident prone. And messy. I really should only wear busy floral prints to camouflage any mishaps, but I'm drawn to solids. Some don't last long...
This shirt didn't even make it through one wearing. Stirring a crockpot full of BBQ pork, some of the sauce escaped. It landed front and center, right below my belly button. When I pulled the shirt out for refashioning I found another stain higher up (look inside one of the hearts on the above photo). Really?!? I am obviously a pro.
I really liked the color and how it fit, so I decided to cover the stains and make it new again!
I'll show you how.
You'll need a piece of clothing, contact paper (doesn't need to be clear), scissors and spray paint.
Decide on a simple shape, then draw it and cut it out of contact paper. I'm keeping the outside for another refashion later.
Peel off the backing and stick it to your shirt. Cover an unstained area with your contact paper. This part will stay unpainted. I also put a piece of paper in the neck to keep the back free of paint.
In an area protected from paint and well ventilated (outside is best), spray paint around your design. I like to position the can over the design and spray away from the center if the design. Rotate all the way around the design, adding paint until you like the design.
Let it dry for a minute then peel away the contact paper. Done!
I wore my "new" shirt to the movies with the family today with a black maxi skirt.
Now to find the other unfortunate garments I have around here that could use a little paint refashioning!
PS- my 11 year old girl likes this idea and wants to try it herself. It would be a great project for older kids, with plenty of supervision during the spray painting.
