Man's Best Friend
One of my very favorite things to wear is a bulldog tee shirt that I screenprinted myself, using stuff I had around the house. Screenprinting sounds kind of scary, but trust me -- it's a simple process. And not to toot my own horn or anything, but this tee gets all kinds of attention when I wear it out on the town! I love to dress it up with my favorite tuxedo jacket and some bling.

  • How to paint a t-shirt. Diy Fashionista: Screenprinted Bulldog Tee - Step 1
    Step 1

    First, print out a design you'd like to screenprint. I chose a bulldog, but any design will do! Simple designs in black ink work best. Gather your sheer material, embroidery hoop, and Sharpie.

    Using a small brush, Mod Podge all of the areas where you DON'T want paint to appear. Cover all of the negative space. Let one layer of Mod Podge dry thoroughly and apply another layer until the glue is thick enough that no paint will seep through those areas. Let dry completely.
