5. Love-Themed Color Powder T-shirts

Customize T-shirts with heart-shaped designs using color powder. Place a heart stencil on the T-shirt, and using a spray bottle, lightly mist the area. Sprinkle the color powder over the damp area. Next, spray it with white vinegar until it is completely soaked.

Once your shirt is nice and soaked through, leave it somewhere to dry. Make sure to keep the shirt flat as this will prevent the colors from meshing together even more. 

In order to fully set the colors into place, you will need to apply heat to them. To do this, we recommend ironing the shirt once it is completely dry and finally, tossing it in the dryer. 

Materials Needed

– Plain T-shirts

– Heart-shaped stencil

– Spray bottle with vinegar

– Color powder
