This DIY Pinch and Twist Beach Cover-up Shirt can be created in under ten minutes! As a fair skinned gal, I always cover up at the beach and often with a large men's shirt. They're comfy, cool and can be worn in the water. It was super easy to give this plain white shirt a little pizzazz with Tulip Fabric Spray. This is a whole new way to approach tie dye, using a spray instead of a bottle and your finger tips instead of rubber bands.
