What you need:
Is anyone else as excited as we are about sweater weather? This DIY clothing idea will have you ready for fall fashion in the easiest way – with ColorShot Stencils and Fabric Spray Paint. Cozying up with fall colors and quote art that makes a statement is seriously just a few sprays away! You could even make a matching tote bag or create this fun design on a throw pillow for extra fall vibes in your favorite sitting area.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner; show your gratitude with this clothing DIY! A cute quote art tee with your favorite thankful-themed words is the perfect thing to wear year round, not just in November. (Although your outfit for Thanksgiving dinner is now planned out too!) Create your own stencil using a cutting machine or freezer paper, then spritz on ColorShot Instant Fabric Color for a tee that’s too cute to keep stuffed in the back of your closet. It’s so easy to DIY that you can make one for your entire crew!
Made with shimmering colors in a seasonal metallic palette, we’re sure you’ll FALL in love with this clothing DIY. As done with the shirt mentioned previously, you can create your own stencil with a cutting machine, but if you don’t have one, freezer paper works amazingly well! You can use a craft knife to cut out your favorite fall quote and design, then pair with your favorite metallic ColorShot Spray Paints for instant dazzle. After you’ve finished your fabulous new tee, reward yourself with a pumpkin spice latte!
Whether you’re heading in to the office or out to run errands, a comfy pair of slides with a cute pattern is a fab addition to any outfit. Even better, you don’t have to buy a new pair of shoes; you can update a pair you already have with Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paints! Creating your own animal print pattern for this clothing DIY is as simple as making abstract shapes with your paint. Check out the tutorial and get ready to take a walk on the wild side this winter.
A denim jacket is a wardrobe staple, and chances are, you already have one hanging in your closet. Denim jackets go with every outfit! Give yours a makeover and spread kindness at the same with this clothing DIY featuring Tulip Brush-On Fabric Paints. You can hand paint your design, or use stencils and a paintbrush for a seriously easy update. Choose a quote that most resonates with you, then spread your message of cheer every time you head out of the house. It’s guaranteed to make someone smile as we head into the season of gratitude and togetherness!
It’s easy to walk among the stars with this fun clothing DIY! Keep your toes warm this winter with a cute pair of grip socks. (If you live in a house with hardwood floors or tile, you know why grip socks come in handy!) There’s no need to shop for a pair when you can grab some socks out of your drawer and create your own custom gripping with Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paints. Once the paint dries, it offers the perfect amount of gripping for no more slipping. Make your own little starry night for your toes, or even quote art or other designs. They’ll make a great stocking stuffer this Christmas too! (You’ll probably want to use new socks for that. Just saying.)
Loungewear isn’t going away anytime soon, and we’re not mad about it. Take your sweatsuits to the next level with tie dye and a matching mask for those times when you’re out and about! (You might as well make a fashion statement, right?) You can go with a soft, wintery tie-dye look like this clothing DIY, or go bright and bold if that’s more your style. What we love most about tie dye is that there’s no wrong way to do it; it all looks awesome. You can even make a matching set of loungewear for the whole fam for your holiday photos this year!
Speaking of comfortable things to wear, is anyone else living in sneakers besides us? This clothing DIY is a great way to refresh a well-loved pair of sneakers you already have. The technique used to decorate these shoes combines Tulip Brush-On Fabric Paints with the ice tie-dye technique for super cool watercolor effects. PS. If you live in an area where it snows, snow works great for ice tie dye! You can also brush the paints on in your own unique designs if you don’t want to try ice dye. They’re YOUR shoes; have fun making them new again!
You could choose to wear an ugly sweater this Christmas, or you could wear a cute one like this tie-dye snowman hoodie. Tie dye has been a big trend this year, so you might as well get festive with it during the holiday season too! Tie dye is a fun activity for all ages and skill levels, so you can get some quality time in with your family while also making a merry & bright winter clothing DIY.
And last but not least, we love clothing DIYs with a sense of humor, like this Resting Grinch Face Shirt. Add some extra laughs to your holiday attire with a custom quote art shirt you can wear while baking Christmas treats or picking out the perfect Christmas tree. Get the look with ColorShot Instant Fabric Color and your own stencil; you can get extra grinchy with it, or go for a quote that’s as sweet as sugarplums.
