Palm Leaf, No Sew Halter: DIY

Ideas about how to recreate a t-shirt are constantly haunting me. 
I have so many thoughts about t-shirt it's a little crazy.
Why do I always go back to using t-shirts?
Well,  who doesn't  have a t-shirt lying around,
and if you don't have one they only cost $5.00.
Here is a quick way to spruce up a plain old white t-shirt.
Oh.. and I am a little obsessed with Palm leaves at the moment.

 Things You Need

  T-shirt* I use Hanes comfort blend Tee's
Palm Leaf Stencil * I made mine
X-acto knife
Cutting board
Trash bag
Wax paper 
Four pieces of card stock or heavy paper.
Chalk or Pencil
 Lay your shirt down and draw these lines.
 Cut your lines.

I cut the bottom hem of another shirt for the tie that goes around the neck,
or you could use a ribbon.
 Tie that piece around your neck
 Tie the front strips to the piece tied around the neck.
 Tie the back strips to the back part of the tie,
the bow in the middle.
 You can bring the ties close together for a halter.
Front View
Same with the back.
 Back view
 Or spread them apart for just a tank top
 Now let's cover this in beautiful Green Palm leaves for some interest.
I printed out the picture I wanted from the internet.
 Using an x-acto knife I cut out the palm leaf.

I place a garbage bag down on my table then I place my shirt on top of the bag.
 I placed wax paper in between my shirt.
 I taped 5 pieces of card stock around my picture for over spray.
 I used Tulip Color Shot in Green and Neon green.
I first sprayed an even coat of Green,
Then I sprayed the neon in the center for a highlight effect
 Repeat that step as many times as you want.
wait 30 minutes to 1 hour before wearing.
Let dry 24 hours before washing in cold water, hang dry.

 Have a wonderful Memorial weekend.
I want to thank all of the men and women who serve in the armed forces.
 Thank you so much for your sacrifice and service.
Lots of <3,
