DIY Holly-day Shirt With Tulip Shimmer Sheets and Glitter Paints

Tulip Shimmer Sheet Holiday Shirt

If you read my blog on any kind of a regular basis, you know I love bling and glitter. So I was thrilled when Tulip and I Love To Create sent me some fabulous goodies to play with including iron on Shimmer Sheets,  washable glitter and glitter paints. Yep washable!

Tulip Haul

We host Christmas day and I like to be festive. Problem is, I’m always hot from running around, cooking etc. and most of the holiday attire is sweaters. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with these goodies. I started with a lightweight longsleeved cotton shirt. You want to wash your item before embellishing.

Tulip Spray Glitter

I was giddy that the Glitter spray paints included  silver and gold. I covered up part of the shirt and then just started spraying! They’re pump spray bottles and you can apply as much or as little as you want.

Tulip Washable Glitter

Once I was satisfied with the Spray Glitter, I used the Fashion Glitter Bond glue to outline the neck and went over that with silver glitter.  While that was drying I played with the Shimmer Sheets.

I cut a piece of one of the silver sheets to size , ran it through my die cutter using a Holly shaped die.

Shimmer Sheets Iron On

The great thing about these Shimmer Sheets is that they can be cut freehand, using a stencil, punched, or using a manual or electronic die cutting machine. I placed the leaves where I wanted them and ironed them on. SO easy!.

Once that was done, sectioned off the bottom, got the silver and gold Spray Glitter back out and did the bottom of my shirt, and added some rhinestones to the cuff.

I had so much fun with this and love that the Spray Glitter is no odor ( good for breathing challenged peeps like me).

I’m definitely dreaming of a glittery Christmas so be on the lookout for some more shimmery projects!
