Faux Necklace Shirt~ Tutorial

I am loving all the faux necklace style shirts right now. 

And ever since I made these shirts I have been trying to think of more ways to paint shirts!

I have to say,

This was EASY. I mean, E-A-S-Y! Seriously, anyone can do this.

And it looks like it was bought from a high-end boutique! 

What you need:

Plain shirt {I got mine at Babies R Us, but Target has them as well right now} 
Fabric Paint
Anything that will make a round stamp {I used dowels of different sizes, and I also used a hot glue stick. But pens, the eraser side of a pencil...anything like that would work}
Cardboard for the inside of the shirt to keep the paint from leaking though

Then you just take whatever you are using for your stamp, dip it in the paint, and start stamping!

{and the rest of the shirt took me all afternoon between putting kids to sleep, feeding kids, changing diapers... so in the midst of all that I forgot to take more pictures of the process. Sorry!}

But basically just stamp out any pattern you want. I chose to do four necklaces- two of each color. And each one is a different size circle.

For the flower you need:

Fabric {I used 100% polyester I think. *think* being the operative word there}
Center Button

I used two colors of fabric and two colors of tulle.
Cut the fabric into circles- these do NOT have to be exact. At. All.
Cut the tulle into similar size circles
Burn the edges of the fabric and then stack however you like. {I know these are the crummiest instructions ever- but there are SO many tutorials out there that explain this so well, I know I couldn't do a better job}

Isn't it adorable?!

Sam wore it to a big family get together today and got a TON of compliments! No one believed I made it!

**I sewed the flower directly onto the shirt.  The next time I make one {my 2 nieces already asked me to make them one!} I will attach the flower to a pin so it can come off when it is time to wash it. I am not sure how this one will hold up. So... my advice is to attach it to a pin and not sew directly to the shirt!

In addition to these great places I link up, I have also submitted this to the DIY Monthly Project!
