You'd probably be hard-pressed to find a dad who would turn down any Father's Day gift from his kids, but one guy can only have so many ties hanging in his closet and bottles of cologne on his bureau. Plus, store-bought gifts just aren't as sentimental as homemade gifts. Then again, homemade gifts are sweet, but most of the time they aren't all that useful. Enter this easy and customizable Father's Day DIY T-shirt that the dad in your life will actually want to wear.
This surprisingly simple Father's Day shirt is the kind of comfy gift that can be worn around the house, for sleeping or to any sporting event. And even better, all you and your kids need to pull off this one-of-a-kind masterpiece is an unprinted T-shirt, a bleach pen and some creativity.
You can personalize this DIY shirt to incorporate the date your special he became a father (or grandfather), and the entire project is quick, easy and inexpensive.
Step 1: Choose a design template and print the template onto vellum paper.
Step 2: Place the printed design on cardboard and carefully cut out lettering with the craft knife. Make sure to save the inside of each letter, as they will be needed to complete the stencil for your design.
Step 3: Insert the cardboard between the front and back of the T-shirt, placing it directly underneath where you will be placing the stencil.
Step 4: Cover the back of vellum sheet stencil with spray adhesive. Spray the back of the inside of each letter that you have saved as well. Spray generously, making sure to cover the edges of your design thoroughly to prevent the bleach from bleeding through.
