These glow-in-the-dark T-shirts may be the ultimate evening wear. Although they require some daytime preparation, they make a fashion statement long after the sun goes down.

What you'll need

  • Black or navy blue T-shirt, pre-washed
  • Con-Tact paper
  • Cardboard Fabric paint (we used white and silver glitter) Foam paintbrushes
  • Glow-in-the-dark paint (we used white, orange, and green)
  • Cotton swabs

How to make it

  1. On the Con-Tact paper, trace a round plate for a planet or draw a waning moon and stars.

  2. Cut the shapes from the paper to create a stencil, then peel off the backing and press the stencil onto the shirt.

  3. Insert a piece of cardboard between the shirt layers to keep the paint from bleeding through.

  4. Use a paintbrush to fill in the shapes with fabric paint (we used white for the planet and moon, silver glitter for the stars).

  5. After the paint dries, add a layer of glow-in-the-dark paint (we used orange for the planet, white for the rest).

  6. When that paint is dry, peel off the stencil.

  7. Add green glow-in-the-dark rings to the planet.

  8. For small stars, use a cotton swab to dab glitter-paint dots onto the shirt.

  9. Follow the fabric paint instructions for setting the design and washing your shirt.
