Next Sunday, St. Patrick's Day, I will be participating in a half marathon run called the Shamrock'n. I haven't participated in this particular race, but from what I've heard it's a fun run with a great atmosphere....and it's on St. Patrick's Day this year. Festive!
To join in on the "party" I wanted to dress in something special. I've been hunting for a green tank top, but haven't been able to find one in the color and style I want. I was losing hope after shopping at many stores until I went to Target. Good ol' Target. I found THIS SHIRT in the perfect green color and for only $8.99!
I got home and immediately got on YouTube looking for a DIY racer back tank top. I came across this link and followed it pretty much exactly.
After cutting the shirt up I used some multi-colored sparkles to add flair. To begin, I printed out a shamrock and traced it onto the shirt as a pattern. Then, I put the shirt over a pillow as a form and placed a paper plate in between the shirt and pillow so the glue wouldn't get on the pillow. Using a pair of old tweezers, I dipped each sparkle in fabric glue.
For some more glitz I added some clear sparkles of a few different sizes on the back.
And why stop at a tank top? I also bought some white wrist bands a dyed them green (since I couldn't find those in green either.) And to match the shirt, I added some colored sparkles. Not sure if I'll wear them on my wrists or ankles.
