This weekend was the Komen Race for the Cure 5K. I was the team captain and since I have such a passion for t-shirt decor I decided to go all out on my team t-shirts. I wanted something awesome with no puffy paint so I decided to go for tie dye. Fortunately AC Moore did not have all the sizes I needed in white so I ended up buying gray t-shirts. The gray t-shirts ended up being awesome once they were tie dyed.
How To Make Awesome Inspirational 5K T-shirts....
3-Tie Dye shirts with a tie dye kit from the craft store
4-Wash shirts again
5-Stencil shirts with stencils, a stencil brush and fabric paint (I stenciled a big T and G on each shirt)
6-Write on the shirts with a fabric marker (I wrote out the rest of the team name in fabric marker)
7-Let the shirts dry for 3 days and then wash them again so your friends get tie dye all over their bodies while running.
Now here are some pictures. It was a great event. There were thousands of people there.
