2 DIY Gay Pride Shirt Tutorials That'll Make For A Subtly Awesome Way To Support The LGBTQ Community
Gay pride month is upon us, which also means tons of parades, parties, and general festivities are on the horizon, raising the most crucial question of all: What are you going to wear? Luckily, bloggers Emily Geraghty of That Cheap Bitch and m.e. of We Can Make Anything have put together some easy gay pride DIY shirts that even the most arts and crafts inept among us should be able to pull off without a problem.
Both gay pride tops are super easy and affordable options that will keep you looking cute and cool no matter where this pride month may take you or what sartorial challenges it throws your way. If you're a crafting novice, you might have better luck with That Cheap Bitch's shirt, which uses a plain white tee and triangle cardboard cutouts to create a rainbow-hued stencil top that's given a feminine touch with a tied up bottom. If you're a little more of a seasoned DIY pro, We Can Make Anything's shirt might be for you. She takes things to the next level of pride professionalism with a super exact mylar stencil that looks just as good as any screen-printed top you could find at Forever 21. While WCMA's top takes a little more precision, both tops are still surprisingly simple to make and will have you styling through all of your pride festivities. Take a look a the step-by-step how-tos for the two tops below, and go ahead and get your craft on!
