  1. How to paint a t-shirt. Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows T Shirt - Step 1 1

    Firstly, you will need a t-shirt.
    I chose an extra large mens grey t-shirt from Primark.
    It cost me £2.50.
    You will also need tailors chalk, fabric paint, a paint brush, a ruler, fabric sheers, an iron, some cardboard and a sewing machine.

    If the t-shirt is new, cut off any tags. I also cut off the 'Primark' part of the care label.

    If you need to, iron your t-shirt. Next, put some cardboard inside the t-shirt to stop any paint from seeping through to the back. Then use a ruler and the tailors chalk to draw your design on.

    Begin with the center line. Then draw a line across the bottom, ensuring the first line is perfectly in the middle. Join up the ends of this line to the top of your first line.
    I then free handed the circle in the middle.

    Using a thin paintbrush, carefully paint on your design following the tailors chalk lines.

    When you are happy with your design, leave it to dry.
    In the meantime, I folded the sleeves up twice, and pinned them in place.

    When the paint is dry, follow the instructions on your paint pot to set it. Mine said to put a clean cloth over the design, and iron it on a high setting.

    I then ironed the sleeves in place.
