Tape the pieces

For this super-fun DIY project, I decided to work on an old towel in the garage to avoid any serious mess. I started by laying tape over parts of the cap and sweater that I didn’t want to get any spray paint on.

Next, I placed my Gucci stencil over the cap and started spraying. I chose to use dark spray paint but feel free to get creative with your colors to suit your aesthetic. I then placed my Louis Vuitton stencil over the grey sweater and sprayed using the white paint. I quickly realized that this technique wasn’t working. The white spray hardly showed and the brown spray smudged from the stencil moving around. 

Spray from a distance

It was time to try again and I hoped that the 3rd time would be a charm. I laid my vest down and taped all around the pocket. This time I just wanted to add the Gucci design to the front of the pocket. I held down the stencil and sprayed from a little further than I had before, using the brown paint. I loved how it turned out so I decided to do the other pocket as well. 

Add paint smudges

To add a little bit of a distressed look to my vest, I sprayed some of the brown paint on a piece of cardboard, put my glove in the paint, and then used the glove to dab some of the paint onto the vest. This definitely gave my vest a grungy, vintage look! 

DIY designer t-shirt

Feeling more confident with my spray painting skills, I grabbed an old T-shirt and got to work on adding a Louis Vuitton design to it. I tried to keep the pattern as close as possible but I actually love how imperfect it turned out. The T was totally transformed into a perfectly imperfect piece!

I am so obsessed with how this T-shirt turned out. Anything styled in the right way can look absolutely amazing! 

DIY Gucci designer clothes

I adore this grunge Gucci vest. I decided to keep the hat because I thought I could get away with it with the distressed look of the vest.
