A cute DIY heart sweater ^-^
All winter I've been searching for the perfect heart sweater that wouldn't break the bank...or my frugal heart. $20+ sweater? No, thanks. I went thrifting and found this perfect long-sleeved grey sweater and instantly knew it would be perfect for this DIY.

  • How to embellish an applique sweater. Heart Sweater - Step 1
    Step 1

    Make your stencil.

    -I tore off the front part of an old notebook and made one half of a heart.

    --I'll admit, I cheated and printed of an enlarged outline and kinda went by that. [I marked the beginning and the end and curved it how I liked]

    Step 2

    Use spray adhesive to keep the stencil from moving while you sponge the fabric paint on.

    -I just went around the edges first.

    --Make sure to put something between the layers of fabric so no paint seeps to the back of your sweater/shirt/tanktop

    Continue sponging around the edges and flip the stencil when you get ready to do the other side.

    -I forgot to take a picture of the other half sponged.

    --Make sure you wipe off any excess paint on the stencil before flipping!
