Easy T-Shirt DIY: Cut Out Back Fashion

Easy T-Shirt DIY: Cut Out Back Fashion
I love a great t-shirt DIY and this one is extremely simple! As shown above, you can wear it two different ways… the first is simply sliced {and reminds me of one of my favorite artists, Lucio Fontana} and the second style, by creating pseudo-bows out of each sliced section. You can choose to wear nothing underneath or wear an alternating colored t-shirt or tank top to show through. A lace tank would be really pretty as well… and a little 80′s Madonna-esque. What You’ll Need… * A crew neck t-shirt. Steps… * Carefully cut out your “crew neck”. * Flip your shirt over and lay it flat. * You can measure it out, or if you have a steady hand, carefully cut 4 straight and parallel lines or slits down your back. NOTE: To get your cut edges to curl a little, use your hands to carefully stretch out your slits. Wear it like this… or create “bows” down the back… * Depending on the number of sections you have, cut 1-1/2″ sections of your lace or trim. And wear it like this… Have Fun!

Pearl Encrusted Deep V t-shirt I’m always worried now when I have an idea for a DIY that one of the other DIY bloggers has already done it. Sadly I don’t have time any more to look at too many blogs so please know that if someone else has done this, it’s by complete coincidence that I have too. I have learned over the years of blogging that we DIYers tend to all think alike. So hopefully, this hasn’t been done before HOWEVER, the idea is not too far off from those hideously bedazzled sweatshirts from the 80′s old ladies used to wear… right? But so much better *NOTE* the “V” looks deeper on the dress form than it is in reality BUT your pearls or beads WILL weigh it down more than it normally sits on your chest.

El correo basura tipografía collage arte My favorite retailer sends me many catalogs and sale mailers. I must say, I always get excited when a Crate and Barrel catalog arrives. I get a lot of inspiration from looking through them and the quality of the paper is great for decoupaging, especially the CB2 catalog! Ruffle Shrug ∙ How To by Becca K I didn't take any photos along the way, but I think its pretty straight forward to explain, message me if you have questions. I cut 6 layers of fine-mesh tulle, all rectangles about 4m long and 10" wide. You could use any fabric though - from jersey to taffeta - depending on how floppy or stiff you want it. If using something besides tulle, think about how many layers you want it, maybe just one if its a thick fabric. Use a ribbon that's ~1/2" wide. For mine I used some leftover fabric and sewed it into a long tube.

Painted Sole Heels Check out my Louboutin-inspired heels! I actually wanted to paint them neon yellow, but I was anxious to get it done only having red paint at home. I must admit, I’m really glad I went with red because they turned out awesome. I know Louboutin fans would not be happy with me, but well, sorry. I’m thinking that I am going to do this with all my heels now, maybe go for neon yellow or electric blue next time.
