I’m to make my son simple, fun holiday shirts. I wanted a quick, easy, and masculine t-shirt. How fun is this No-Sew DIY Valentine Tee?
Now that my son is starting to understand holidays, I’m actually interested in making him simple, fun holiday shirts. I wanted something really quick and really easy and masculine. How fun is this nerdy suspender Valentine tee?

I took a basic white t-shirt and some tape. I think most tapes will work. I used electric tape because we had it, and it was the width I was looking for. I put tape straight up the front and then crossed them in the back. Then I added a heart on the front.
I stuck a piece of cardboard between the layers to protect the fabric. I used Simply Spray Soft Fabric Paint and sprayed all over the front and the back and focusing the spray right next to the paint.
It gave the Valentine tee a really cool reverse effect. Then I added long red sleeves underneath to add warmth for the winter. It turned out perfect, and I haven’t noticed any fading of the paint.
My son calls it his “bunny” shirt because he thinks the heart is a bunny. Close enough, right? As long as he’ll wear it!
I was on a quick painting kick, and my son is WAY into ducks right now so I made a duck shirt. I also did the reverse effect.
This one was even faster because I just did one sticker and a little bit of spraying.
I’m hoping the yellow will hide any stains that will definitely happen.
