This Festive DIY Could be Your New Favorite Hobby
As someone that loves crafting and has a hard time sticking to just one project at a time, I find myself curating a variety of hobbies.
Some are pointless other than bringing me a spark of joy when I’ve completed it. Others are more practical and provide me with something functional to use when I’m done with the DIY process. Either way, it is always a fun process and leaves me with a new skill that might come in handy down the line.
One of my current obsessions that I’m considering getting into ate DTF transfers. Yes, ‘DTF’, but it doesn’t stand for what you’re probably thinking. ‘Direct To Film’ transfers are decals that are transferred onto shirts, cups, or anything else you’d like, via heat. Think of it almost like screen printing but with a decal printed onto a clear film, and then ironed on.
I came across a variety of people online that sell these transfers so you can add them to your own shirts. It’s cheap to buy the transfer itself, then you can pick up an inexpensive shirt from Walmart, slap them together and you’ve got a cool new shirt for a relatively lower price.
Many people use this method to make festive shirts for different seasons, holidays, or special occasions. Some even use this method to create shirts they can sell on Etsy or other platforms.
Although I know there are only so many shirts one girl needs, I really want to give this a try.
