Remember when I showed you this shirt that I DIY’d? The one that was $220 here?
Well, I made my own version for $8. I like the sound of that way better than $220!
This DIY is simple. I promise. I tried to make it complicated by sewing it, resulting in a mess, then a easy light bulb went off. Let me show you.
I bought a plain white shirt from Target. I love the Mossimo scoop neck tees and I have several colors and patterns. They are great for layering or wearing solo. They are usually $8, I think, but they run sales and have coupons all the time. I paid $3 for this one during a sale and using a coupon.
I grabbed this sequin ribbon at Michaels for $1. I guess it was leftover from Christmas since it says Holiday on it, but they did have more. It’s not an only available at Christmas kind of thing.
I cut strips for the letters and put them out how I wanted them. Sequins will fall off the end when you do this, so cut a little longer. You can trim the string off the ends after you’re finished.
So that last C in Chic, I sewed on with the sewing machine. Bad idea. It was really hard to keep straight and ended up looking wonky. I decided to glue instead and used Aleene’s Fabric Fusion.
So cute! I really want to make one of these. I guess I could use a different colored sequin, too!

Love it! That glue you used is amazing!
Very cute and creative, I may have to make one.
Very cool and creative. I actually like yours better than the pricey version.

Awesome, awesome! Thanks for sharing the how-to. Just might have to make a Hobby Lobby run for some sequin ribbon to DIY my own!

I love this shirt – you did a perfect job! I either have no talent or no patience. And I'm not patient enough to decide which 😉
Thanks for linking up, friend!
