This abstract cut-out was created by Marta at Second Funniest Thing, and it’s chic enough for a night out.

Iron your shirt. This will make it much easier to draw on it.

Fold the T-shirt in half and mark the center. Then use the dish to mark a circle at the height you want the tree cut-out to be at.

Draw a tree within the circle. Don’t make very thin branches as they may fall apart with wear.

Follow the marked lines to cut out the tree. Remember you’re cutting out the blank space around the tree, not the tree itself. To avoid cutting the other side of the shirt, put a magazine inside the T-shirt.

If you want, you can also cut the sleeves and the neck of the T-shirt.This will make it a bit looser and cooler.

ID: 1243708

Before wearing, clean the T-shirt to remove the chalk marks.

Done! A unique and breezy summer shirt.
