In honor of Breast Cancer awareness month I wanted to create a craft honoring boobies. I wanted something silly, fun, actually wearable, and…educational. I wanted to have fun with it but to serve a purpose. So I came up with the idea for this diy breast cancer awareness shirt. Kapeesh?

I’m all about t-shirts with sayings. They are walking billboards! But come on…some of those shirts need to stay on greeting cards. So, I really, really wanted to stay away from tacky.
So, I reached for…
Get it??…I didn’t want tacky so I reached for puffy paint. Ha!
Well, at least I’m giggling. Okay, moving on…
- Using a duct tape roll as a guide, make the perfect circles right along your breast line. Add a tiny “nipple” in the middle of each.
- Paint each “boobie” with one direction of a breast exam, and put the name of the direction under.
Here’s the explanation for this DIY breast cancer awareness shirt with full pictures and a little more detail if you need it:
I made 3 boobs on my shirt. Lined up nice and straight. Perfect, perky boobs. How did I get perfect circles?? Simple, I used a duct tape roll as a guide. That darn duct tape is so useful!
After I created my 3 boobs I added arrows for the various directions a woman can use to give herself a self-exam. I’m telling you…I’m going to get a Nobel Peace Prize for this shirt. Saving the world people…saving the world!
And just to be silly, I put a Nike swoosh and the words “Just Do Them”. I know…I’m here all week people. All week.
Now go forth and do good! Be silly AND save the boobs!
Just to be clear…I’m not making light of breast cancer. It’s serious. It’s deadly. There isn’t a person on earth that hasn’t been touched, or couldn’t BE touched by breast cancer. I stand with all the women who have survived, are surviving, will survive, and have survived in a way we have yet to understand…death. I choose to use humor to bring awareness to this terrible cancer. How will you help? Because I hope you do!
