• Your Favorite T-Shirt

  • Scissors
  • Staple Gun/Glue Gun
  • Picture Hooks/Thumb Tacks


  1. Based on rough measurements of the t-shirt design, choose an appropriately sized canvas (Prepared canvas can be found at your local art store.)
  2. Put the canvas inside the shirt. Move the shirt around so the graphic is centered/where you want it on the canvas.
  3. Carefully and snugly wrap the excess t-shirt fabric around canvas.
  4. (Optional: tape down fabric around the corners in back of the canvas to make stapling easier.)
  5. Staple fabric to the inside edges of the canvas. (Start at top center of canvas.)
  6. Staple along the entire back of canvas in 1-inch intervals.
  7. Take off masking tape and use scissors to cut off the excess t-shirt fabric.
  8. Staple down remaining fabric.
  9. Hang on wall using picture hooks or thumbtacks!

**Note- You can buy stretched, blank canvases at your local art store. You can also buy them in bulk! Pricing depends on size and can range from $5.00 to $20.00.
