Cool Crafts On A Budget: DIY Galaxy T-Shirt

We are loving the galaxy trend that is so popular right now! Unfortunately it means getting galaxy themed things is so expensive. Enter: the DIY that saved the day. The tutorial video below will walk you through how to make your very own galaxy t shirt! You can apply this same technique to shoes, hats, bandanas – anything you want to be more like a galaxy, and less like a normal, boring piece of clothing. Check out the full instructions beneath the video. Happy crafting!


– Black shirt

– Fabric paint in cosmic colors (and in white)

– Old tooth brush

– Small spray bottle

– Bleach

– Old rag


Mix 1 part bleach to 2 parts water in a small spray bottle. Twist shirt in the mid – lower left section, and lightly spray bleach to fade the shirt. Let the bleach dry.

Dab purple, green, grey, and blue onto the shirt, blending colors.

Add stars by covering an old toothbrush in white paint, and spraying white flecks onto the shirt.

Add more details / stars with a small paintbrush if desired.

To prevent fading: Wash in cold water, turning shirt inside out.
