Easy St. Patrick’s Day T-Shirt DIY

For this project you’ll need:

  • t-shirt
  • green fabric paint
  • a sharpie
  • clear, vinyl, self-adhesive paper
  • an unused pencil eraser.

Prepare your t-shirt by ironing or steaming it and sliding a piece of cardboard inside. On your vinyl you can either free-hand or trace some lucky, four-leaf clovers. Once they’re drawn, cut them out, peel off the backing, and stick them directly onto the t-shirt.

Tracie four leaf clovers onto clear contact paper.

Squeeze a small amount of fabric paint out onto a plate/pallet, and using the pencil eraser, apply the paint to the edges of the vinyl.

Dip your clean eraser into fabric pain to create an easy St Patrick's Day t-shirt.

You want there to be a lot of paint dots close to the vinyl edge, but you’ll want the density of the dots to decrease as you move away from the edges.

Use your pencil to make dots all around the clover cut outs.

Let the paint dry for a few hours (refer to the instructions on the paint label for specifics, but when in doubt, let it set overnight).

Once your fabric pain is dry, peel the vinyl off of the t-shirt to reveal the design.

Once the paint is dry, carefully peel the vinyl off of the shirt.

Avoid getting pinched with this easy St. Patrick's Day t-shirt DIY.

VOILA! Lucky four-leaf clovers you can take with you everywhere!
