Apartment Living BlogDiy › DIY Sports Jersey

You’re getting ready to attend or host a tailgating party, but what do you wear? Tailgating parties are one of the most casual parties you can go to, which means your options are endless.

Wearing jeans and a t-shirt or a jersey is a popular look for these types of parties.

However, what if you don’t own a jersey? Jersey’s are not required for tailgating parties, although most football fans usually enjoy wearing their jerseys to represent their favorite teams.

An average price for a jersey is around $50, which can be expensive for some people. If that is the case for you, consider making a jersey yourself.

I found a DIY on how to make a jersey for your favorite team for under $20.











DIY Tailgating Jersey:


  • T-shirt
  • Scissors
  • Fabric paint
  • Iron- on letters
  • Iron -on numbers
  • Paint brush
  • Iron- on chalkboard (optional)
  • Letter stencils
  • Iron

*Items can be purchased from Joann’s Fabrics for under $20*


First, lay out your t-shirt.

If you’re using the iron- on chalkboard place it on the desired area on the t-shirt. Fold over the other half of the t-shirt and iron the chalkboard in place. Next, take off the sticker.

Now, grab your iron- on letters. Cut out the letters you will be using and place them on the desired section of your t-shirt. Fold over the other half of the t-shirt and iron the letters in place, then carefully take off the stickers.

Use the same process when placing the iron- on numbers.

After, grab your letter stencils. Take the sticker off of the front and the plastic from the back. Stick the stencil on the desired place on the t-shirt.  Paint over the entire stencil, and then carefully pull it off.

After the paint dries, your tailgate jersey is complete!

    I’ve never imagined myself doing something as creative as this but I might give it a go. I’ve always been a collector of jerseys and it would be interesting to be able to make my own and have some of it framed.
