Make A Bleach Spray T-Shirt – Fun DIY 5 Minute Project

Spray On Your T-Shirt Designs

Posted By: Matt Hamilton

Have you seen the bleach spray t-shirt craze that is sweeping the internet?  Our good pal Angie Holden at The Country Chic Cottage  put together a great step by step guide to show you how to make a bleach shirt in 5 minutes with a couple of household items.

The idea came to her when she couldn’t find a use for some leftover triangle labels so rather than waste labels she upcycled them and put together a cool geometric pattern on a blue shirt.

Make Stencils With Labels

Pick a label from our standard label size list or use a full sheet label and cut with scissors. If you want to create a really elaborate design, use your Cricut or Silhouette machine.  Next peel the label from the sheet and stick it on the shirt to create a pattern, then spray the bleach.
