All you need for this project is:

    -Fabric Spray Paint
    -Tank top

Turns out I didn't have a bucket so I improvised with a kitty litter container.  I took the tank and put it onto the kitty litter container.  You want your tank to fit tightly over the container so you can scrunch it better.  I was worried about the stripes being too uniform so I played around with the folds.  I laid down some newspaper and commenced spraying.  I held the can about six inches from the tank and sprayed back and forth until the whole shirt was covered.  I let it sit for about five minutes and the gingerly removed it from the bucket.  Per the instructions, I let the shirt hang for 72 hours before washing it. 

I purchased the fabric spray paint at Joann's with a 40% off coupon so this this entire project cost about $2 or $3 dollars.  It's a simple and inexpensive way to spice up your wardrobe!

Love this idea! Tried it on a tank top I had and gave it a cool zebra pattern. I used the back of my craft chair and worked just as good. ^_^

Never tempt a craft nerd with the joke of a cape request, as a cape will be made and will be worn.

Great idea using your chair!  Finding an object to place the tank over seems to be the one problem everyone has had with this project.
