Finding the perfect outfit to wear for the current or upcoming Holiday is not always as easy as it sounds. So I figured it couldn’t be that hard to make some cool looking shirts for Halloween. On top of the fact that this was a fun project I knew I could do in the future with my grandson and niece. Follow along with me for a DIY Bleached Shirt Halloween.
Dark T-Shirt- Cotton works best
Dollar Tree Wicked One sign or any pattern of your choice
Hydrogen Peroxide- The bleach will eat holes in the shirt. The hydrogen peroxide helps prevent that.
Tape- Cover holes in sign from hanger
Piece of Cardboard
The bottles contain 50/50 Bleach and water in one and 50/50 Hydrogen Peroxide and water in the other.
I did this project outside and used a small tarp to cover the grass from the bleach!
Start by placing your piece of cardboard into your shirt. This is so the bleach doesn’t leak onto the opposite side of the shirt.
Next tape off the hanger holes in the wooden cut out and place onto the t-shirt.
Now spray over the wooden sign first with bleach and then the peroxide. Both can be done one right after the other. The peroxide will neutralize the bleach.
Let the shirt dry out in the sun if possible.
This was such a fun project. I love that you can use any cut out or pattern that you like. It is also a great idea to do with the kids, almost like tie dye. I can’t wait for next month so I can start wearing my shirt! Do you think you will make a DIY Bleached Shirt Halloween?
