Painting Smocks from Old T-shirts


A while back I made some super simple painting smocks out of old t-shirts for my three oldest kids, and today my twins wanted to paint so badly that I had to whip up a couple more, so i thought I'd snap some photos and share the idea with you!

All you need is an old (adult size) t-shirt you no longer want and a clothespin.  
 


Cut a straight line up the back of the shirt.


If you are using a long sleeved shirt you will want to cut the sleeves to an appropriate length for the child too.

Put the shirt on the child and pin the back closed with a clothespin.


Easy, right?


Since it is cut down the back you won't have to slip a paint covered shirt up over anyone's head when they are done making a mess, errr, um, I mean painting their masterpiece.




Thanks so much for visiting The Complete Guide to Imperfect Homemaking.

  1. Oh my goodness! Are you kidding? Such a cute/awesome idea! I'm mad I didn't think of it!:) I recently went through and donated a bunch of stuff though from my closet... I might "accidently" stain some of my t-shirts...

    Love it! and Love your blog!!
