Taylor Swift heart sweater

If you saw my Santa wish list the other day, you know that I have my eyes on the Wildfox Couture heart jumper. After hours of ogling their website, I had an epiphany: I can make my own!

[SIDENOTE: Since making my wish list just last week, the heart jumper is no longer available on their website…I think this DIY project is FATE :)]

DIY Wildfox Couture heart jumper

What you need to make a DIY Wildfox Couture Inspired Heart Jumper:

  • A white crew neck sweatshirt. I got mine at Target for around $8
  • A heart stencil to trace. I just printed out Word’s heart shape as big as it would fit on a sheet of paper and cut this out
  • Pencil
  • Mod Podge
  • Red Glitter
  • A container for mixing glitter and glue
  • A paint brush
  • Newspaper

How to make a Wildfox Couture Inspired Heart Jumper:

  1. With a pencil, lightly trace around the heart stencil in the center of your sweatshirt.
  2. Mix the red glitter with Mod Podge in a container. There’s no science to this — just make sure the glitter is thick enough to cover the shirt well.
  3. Put the newspaper inside your sweatshirt. This will prevent the glue from soaking through to the other side.
  4. Paint the glitter/glue combo on the sweatshirt — stay in the lines! I painted about two coats on my sweatshirt.
  5. Let your shirt dry overnight or until dry. On thin spots, paint another coat of glitter/glue. Let dry.
  6. Wear your inexpensive, Wildfox Couture inspired sweatshirt for a sweet date-night look — OR a sassy daytime frock!

Update: I spilled coffee on my heart sweatshirt (clumsy!). I bleached the stained parts, and then I washed the sweatshirt in the gentle cycle by itself with detergent. The glitter and glue DID hold up in the wash! I line dried it, and it’s good as new!
