How to Make a Glitter Shirt

December 12, 2011
DIY Glitter Shirt

Ok. You can say it. Enough with the glitter already, Stacie! But I can’t stop. Maybe it’s all the holiday festivities that have got me all glitter-crazy and sparkly-eyed– there’s just no denying how fun it is to glitter everything. Glitter lamp shade. Glitter purse. Glittery pom pom… (And I’ve still got a few glitter projects in the queue!) I’ll draw the line at my dog. (Although now that I think about it, her collar is looking a little drab.) ๐Ÿ˜‰

I originally saw this idea on The Frugalista Diaries. This blog is super cool.

To make a glitter accent shirt you need:

โ™ฅShirt. (I like the look of chambray with gold. :))
โ™ฅFabric Mod Podge
โ™ฅGlitter

Step 1: Lay out your shirt and make sure the collar is flat. If your shirt needs ironing, do it. Otherwise your glittered collar could have a fold.

Step 2: Mix your glitter in a little dish. I would say a good ration of glitter to Mod Podge is 1:1. This seems like a lot, but it works a lot better I’ve found.

Step 3: Paint that stuff on! It might take a few coats if you don’t pile it on. Then let it all dry. (Duh.) You don’t want a Mod Podged neck. ๐Ÿ™‚

And you got it!

    @Rebecca: I have not tried washing it yet, but I think it will be fine if I just hand wash it and be careful! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It sure looks pretty, but I can't imagine that after washing (even hand washing) that the mod podge would melt and the glitter would get all over the rest of the shirt.

    Thanks guys!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    And @Karen– I will let you know about the shirt after I wash it, but judging from how hard it was to get the Mod Podged glitter off my bathroom counter top, I don't think it is going anywhere. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Totally tried this to revamp an old button up. Such a great idea! Oh and I managed to find a fabric glue that I was told would hold up to washing (I'm skeptical) but we'll see!

    I found some great glitter shirts from my favorite t shirt manufacturers. That's not enough though! I'm going to add glitter to a few bags using your tutorial.

    Everuone has the same concern as me. Washing & drying.

    I've seen this glitter fabric paint that gives the same effect, it can avoid you from the pains of cleaning later if you wash it.

    I really cannot see if you have answered this question yet but how does this hold up in the wash? I am looking into making a glitter shirt for my daughter & myself so that we can cheer on my son's football team and I want to do this with a stencil. But how does it hold up in washing and will it work on cotton or jersey shirts?

  • Reply Stacie Grissom August 8, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    I wouldn't do this on shirts that stretch– like cotton or jersey, but if you use fabric mod podge, it will definitely hold up in the wash!
