I’m so excited that the 4th of July is just a few days away! I don’t know how we’re celebrating this year, but I know it will be fun! In the mean time, I’ve figured out what I’ll be wearing… actually I finished making what I’ll be wearing! I’m so excited to be rocking this DIY USA Bleach Tee this 4th of July!
A little bleach, some stickers and a basic tee all combine to finish in one awesome bleach tee! And it doesn’t take as long as you’d think either!
To make your own Bleach Tee you’ll need:
Basic Tee in any color.
Shape cut out – I used pre-cut letters, but you could use any shape in almost any size!
Glue Stick (regular school glue is perfect)
Mix 1/2 bleach and 1/2 water in your spray bottle.
Pull out the letters you plan on using. Gauge your spacing and placement using the ruler.
Carefully add a thick layer of glue to the back of your letters. Place the letters on your shirt and press firmly. ( I placed a book on top of the letters for about 10 minutes to ensure a good seal. )
Place the cardboard between the layers of your shirt and move to a well ventilated area.
Layer your shirt flat with the cardboard in the middle and spray your your shirt with the bleach/water mix. Give it a good spraying and then wait a few minutes. Spray a few more times.
Once you’re happy with the way the bleach is effecting the color of the tee, carefully remove the cardboard and peel back the letters.
Wash in a cold cycle immediately. Dry normally.
And just like that you have a completely unique and fun bleach tee!! These tees are so easy to make you whip them up for whatever the occasion!
What are your 4th of July plans?
