I wanted to wear a giant heart on my chest, so I did what I could to make that happen.
I first created a heart stencil with a piece of poster board. I placed the stencil over an old F21 sweater with a relatively neutral color scheme and design, so the heart would really POP. Using the poppy red ‘Simply Spray’ soft fabric paint, I sprayed a few layers on top of my stencil, trying to apply the paint as evenly as possible. I pulled away the stencil and let the paint dry.
So simple, quick, and fun to rock (what I look for in DIYs). I paired mine with some high-waisted jeans and super big top bun. // Happy DIY-ing!
