Breaking Bad DIY!

Breaking Bad will finally be back on TV this Sunday (August 11th 2013)! I'm so excited, so what better way to celebrate the season premiere then with a fun, easy and cheap DIY!!!

There are so many shirts online that range up to 25-30 dollars, which isn't bad, but I just found doing this DIY pretty easy, for the shirts online aren't perfect so your sketch of the infamous Mr. White, doesn't have to be perfect either.

This shirt WILL look a bit messy just because you will be tracing your picture onto your shirt, and it becomes quite difficult when dragging your marker against it.

So below, I have all the things you will need!

  • Any search engine for inspiration by simply entering "Heisenberg Breaking Bad" in the search bar...I used BING, kiddddddding, google.
  • Black
    • Acrylic paint
    • Sharpie for initial sketch onto the shirt
    • Fabric Marker
  • Foam Board or a hard cover
This is a closer look of the sketch that I made freehand that I will use as a tracing tool.

Begin tracing with a black marker (sharpie)

Once the tracing is complete, either continue coloring with a fabric marker or use the acrylic paint.

So this next photo is why I suggest to use a foam board: Some paint from the shirt soaked onto the foam and to my surprise it sorta looks like an abstract Walter White, which I will probably frame.

So when I took this photo,  my shirt was hanging to dry!

This is how my shirt turned out, and unlike my Celine Logo Tee I will press the shirt with low heat!

My wall/life is so BORING!!

This DIY is super cheap like actually costs a dollar. Last year, I did this hand painted wallpaper on only one of my walls which now makes my other walls look super boring!!! So, I decided to continue with the look I already have going on in my room, boutique-ey (sorta...) I love how my wall turned out but I'm definitely going to play around with this area of my wall just cause its small and versatile and if I decide to do a dramatic change and regret it after, it won't be that bad to start all over!! Sooooooo all you need is the following

1. A boring wall
2. Multi-purpose hooks
3. Bags!!!!!!!!!!
4. A level (optional)

Super easy I don't know why I keep talking about it!!
YAY! Boring wall, check!

Multi-purpose hooks

Although, these are dollar store hooks the adhesive is pretty strong so be sure to come up with a vision maybe even measure where the bags fall before sticking the hooks on the wall. Keep the left over hooks if you want to do more than 3.

This is what the finished product looks like, giving my room that boutique feel, that I really, really, really, really want it to have!
