    Create striped design with painters’ tape. (If you want stripes on front and back of shirt, tape both sides, though you’ll only paint one at a time.)

  2. Step 2

    Place craft paper between shirt layers to keep paint from bleeding through. With brush, dab on paint. Let dry.

  3. Step 3

    Remove tape. Follow directions on paint bottle to launder.
