Cut-out Tree Tank
I originally bought this plain, solid tank top from Forever 21, and when I saw the tutorial for a cut-out design of a tree on the back of a top, I decided to try it out on this shirt. I used a white colored pencil to trace a large circular object and the outline of the tree, then I cut out the negative space. Simple as that!

Moon Phases Sweater
I got the inspiration for this design from a tutorial at Boat People Vintage. In their version, they drew each moon with a fabric marker, but since I didn’t have one, I used the freezer paper stencil and fabric paint method.

Painted Mugs


After doing some research online, I found out you can use regular Sharpies to draw on porcelain mugs. You don’t need an oil-based Sharpie or a porcelain pen, but I’m sure one of those would be more suited for the job. 

After I drew my design, I baked the mug in a toaster oven at 350 for half an hour, then let it cool. So far, it’s held up to gentle hand washing, but I don’t trust it enough to run it through the dishwasher. Another thing I noticed was that after I baked my mug, the colors of the design came out slightly different than the original Sharpie. It was a bit annoying, because my 3 different colors looked more like 2 different colors, but that can’t be helped. I’m still very happy with the final product. This project is so easy, and there’s so much room for creativity!

DIY Pocket Tee
There are a lot of tutorials for pocket tees, but I think this video tutorial by Forever 21 is my favorite that I’ve seen. It does require sewing, but you don’t need to know how to use a sewing machine. I also love how she added an extra touch by sewing strips of fabric on the sleeves as well.

Quote on Canvas

This is the first half of a set of two canvases that will read “So plant your own garden and decorate your soul with flowers instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers,” from the poem “After a While” by Veronica Shoffstall.

I cut out scraps of flowers and floral patterns from magazines (bridal magazines are gold mines) and glued them down with mod podge. Then I laid out the words with vinyl letters, painted the canvas black, peeled off the stickers after the paint dried, and added a coat of mod podge to finish it off.
