Make Your Own Metallic Pink Bunny Sweater for Easter

When I saw Kelly’s beyond amazing DIY holographic outfit, I immediately fell in love with the technique she shared. I immediately tried using iron-on adhesive with mylar instead of cellophane, and am thrilled with the results. Talk about shiny! For this sweater, I used a pinky-purple mylar on a powder pink sweater for all the pastel spring vibes. Forgive me if I end up wearing this sweater every day until Easter.

Materials and Tools:

Instructions:

  1. Lay a piece of mylar (colored side down) on your ironing board and cut a piece of permanent iron-on adhesive in the same size but slightly smaller. Lay the iron-on adhesive (paper side up) on top of the mylar and press with your iron, following the instructions on your adhesive.
  2. Print and cut out the bunny template and trace onto the paper side of the iron-on adhesive.
  3. Cut out the shapes and peel the paper backing off of the mylar, leaving just the adhesive behind.
  4. Arrange the bunny shapes on your sweater, using a ruler if necessary.
  5. Carefully place a press cloth on top of the shapes and press with the iron, again following the instructions with your adhesive.
  6. Voila! Repeat this for the back, or keep it simple with a front-only pattern.

You’ll notice the mylar may look a little wrinkly at this stage — this will go away later, so no need to worry!

Voila! Repeat this for the back, or keep it simple with a front-only pattern. Wash inside out on a delicate cycle, or by hand if possible.

Excuse me while I iron mylar shapes onto my whole wardrobe!
