DIY Valentine’s Heart Stencil T-Shirt

In light of Valentine’s Day, I thought I would share with you a quick and fun heart-filled DIY.

My sister was home from school this weekend and last minute, Sunday afternoon, she says she wants a heart t-shirt. She couldn’t find one in Target, so we took a quick ride to Michaels, bought a plain white v-neck t-shirt and 3 different colors of fabric paint (I bought Martha Stewart multi-surface paint). She wanted pink, lavender and pink glitter. As soon as we got home, I cut two stencils out of transparency paper and then stenciled them onto the t-shirt.

My sister loved the way it turned out and she looked super cute in it! This was such an easy project and took me about an hour to do.

I have another stencil DIY coming up for you in the next couple days that I’m really excited about, so stay tuned!

I got a haircut this week…probably my last one for awhile, seeing as how my hairdresser works Tues. – Thurs. and I will be commuting to and from NY for my new job. I suppose I could try to find someone knew, but I love my hairdresser. She is the first and only one I have ever trusted and she does a fantastic job every single time! So, for now, I will let it grow until I can get to her again.


I worked on some fun DIY projects this weekend, including a Valentine’s Day shirt for my sister. I am really excited to share the other project with you – stay tuned for a tutorial this week!


My fortune from Chinese last night…It’s so true! But, fortune cookie, you’re a little late in telling me this because they’ve already begun developing!


I hope everyone has a great Monday! I am SO excited because tonight I’m seeing Ben Howard in NY with some friends! (If you’ve never listened to him before, please check him out. He is amazing.) I think it is going to be a fantastic show. He is so talented and I can’t wait to see and hear him live! I will let you all know how it is tomorrow 🙂
