You’re getting ready to attend or host a tailgating party, but what do you wear? Tailgating parties are one of the most casual parties you can go to, which means your options are endless.
Wearing jeans and a t-shirt or a jersey is a popular look for these types of parties.
However, what if you don’t own a jersey? Jersey’s are not required for tailgating parties, although most football fans usually enjoy wearing their jerseys to represent their favorite teams.
An average price for a jersey is around $50, which can be expensive for some people. If that is the case for you, consider making a jersey yourself.
I found a DIY on how to make a jersey for your favorite team for under $20.
DIY Tailgating Jersey:
- Fabric paint
- Iron- on letters
- Iron -on numbers
- Paint brush
- Iron- on chalkboard (optional)
- Letter stencils
*Items can be purchased from Joann’s Fabrics for under $20*
First, lay out your t-shirt.
If you’re using the iron- on chalkboard place it on the desired area on the t-shirt. Fold over the other half of the t-shirt and iron the chalkboard in place. Next, take off the sticker.
Now, grab your iron- on letters. Cut out the letters you will be using and place them on the desired section of your t-shirt. Fold over the other half of the t-shirt and iron the letters in place, then carefully take off the stickers.
Use the same process when placing the iron- on numbers.
After, grab your letter stencils. Take the sticker off of the front and the plastic from the back. Stick the stencil on the desired place on the t-shirt. Paint over the entire stencil, and then carefully pull it off.
After the paint dries, your tailgate jersey is complete!
