Make an easy and unique autumn/winter themed T-shirt.
I made this top for my granny and I used her favourite leaves (beech leaves) but this works for any kinds of leaves. This could also be done on a light coloured top with paint, but I love the effect that the bleach gives.

  • Step 1

    Collect some leaves. Different shapes and sizes look really good.

  • Step 2

    Lay your black t-shirt out on the table with the cardboard in the middle of the area you want to print on so it doesn't bleed through to the other side.

  • Step 3

    pin the top so that you can only see the area you want to print on.

  • Step 4

    mix the bleach with a little water and then paint the veiny side of the leaf (older ones have more prominent veins) with a generous layer of bleach.

  • Step 5

    push lightly on to the T-shirt (or firmly, depending on the look you want) take off and then wait for the orange colour of the print to come through.

  • Step 6

    repeat step 5 until you have the look that you want.

  • Step 7

    leave to dry and it is ready for wearing.
