DIY Stranger Things Tee Shirt

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen16 Comments

Unless, you have been living under a rock (which I have been prone to do myself a time or two) I think it is probably safe to say you have at least heard about the Netflix original show Stranger Things. Our family kind of loves it.

And we are excitedly awaiting the 3rd installment to hit the Netflix airwaves this next month in October! One of our favorite characters is Steve Harrington. I would trust that guy with babysitting my kids any day! Just in case you haven’t seen it I won’t give too much of the story-line away, but Steve is awesome.

We didn’t want to like him in the first of the series, but by the end of that first one our family knew he was the real hero of the show. Plus look at that hair!



My fantastic daughter Sam turned 17 on Monday and she wanted a Steve Harrington shirt, but all of the ones we found online to buy were, “lame.” So ever the creative mastermind, my husband Jen’s Guy enlisted my help in making a shirt that would be perfect for the birthday girl.

It seriously was the most simple thing ever and I wonder why we don’t make more shirts around here?

To begin, pick out the color and style of the shirt you want. Cotton blends work best rather than just straight cotton.

Next, snag some iron on picture transfer sheets from your local crafting store. I picked one that was for dark colors.

Go online and pick a picture and print. Of course we had to use this one. Iconic no?

Here’s something important to note. When you print make sure to use an ink jet printer as a laser image won’t iron on. This is according to the instructions on the iron transfers package. To adhere your image, follow the directions and iron that puppy on and, voila!

I kind of wish I had Steve’s mace-nail bat, you know because just in case I ever had to fight giant monsters from another realm….

  1. I love Stranger Things and seriously cannot wait for the next season either. My husband and I literally binge watched last season in two nights time. Plus, I do enjoy Steve. But love that the pic you chose also included Dustin as he seriously makes me crack up. Therefore, he probably is my favorite. Now, I am off to see if we can try this shirt making business here, too. Oh and totally pinning, as well :)

  2. I love that you did that and I might need to order one from you! Steve can totally come babysit my kids as well.
    We’re still only halfway through season 2. We better catch up fast!

  3. My husband watched it and loves it. I should get caught up:) Cool shirt – I might end up wearing one after my planned binge, lol.

  4. Neat!! I’d never thought of doing this. Also, now I’m thinking I should watch Stranger Things. I’ve never seen it, and I do have Netflix.

  5. Hi Jen, a big Happy Birthday to Sam. Where does the time go? Sometimes I too nervous to blink. I’ve tried to watch Stranger Things twice now and just can’t get into it (I hang my head in shame). My husband got into it though. I love the fact that you weren’t going to let lame tee shirts get in the way of your daughter getting what she wanted.
