DIY ‘Til Christmas: Phrased Sweatshirt


I’ve been slacking on my DIYs around the blog, so I am challenging myself to share some simple DIYs with y’all that will make for great Christmas gifts throughout the rest of the holiday season :-).  Phrased tees and sweatshirts have been all the rage lately; just take a look around Pinterest.  Considering my current love of sweatshirts and the Fall weather, I thought a phrased sweatshirt would be a great gift for myself and my friends :-).  This is a super simple DIY, like this one and this one from the previous two weeks that certainly anyone can do!

You’ll need:  

  • A sweatshirt (I bought a Hanes one from the boys section at Wal-Mart)
  • Iron
  • Ironing board (I used the a small one I had from my early college days because it allowed me to use the stable table surface)
  • Iron on letters of your choice (The ones I used came from Hobby Lobby)

Steps:

1.     Preheat the iron, and lay the sweatshirt on flat surface.

2.     Figure out the phrase you want and how you want it to lay out on the sweatshirt.

3.    Use a ruler to try and align the letters evenly.

4.     Iron on the letters according to the directions provided.  Mine simply directed me to press down for 15-20 seconds on the outside and inside of the sweatshirt.

5.     Voila!  You have a super cute phrased sweatshirt that you can wear with anything!  I’m envisioning mine with a pencil skirt or a good pair of jeans and pumps on a casual day :-).  Hopefully over the next few days it’ll cool down enough for me to be able to wear it.

What do you think?  Is this a DIY that you think someone on your gift giving list will enjoy?
