Just because you can’t afford to take your family to Hawaii this summer does not mean you can’t dress like you took a deluxe vacation. Get that fresh off the plane look for your kids with this adorable DIY Hawaiian shirt onesie complete with lei. Perfect for a luau without even leaving your own backyard!
Baby boy Hawaiian shirt onesies – is there anything cuter!?! Little girls would also be adorable in this tie-dye onesie. Don’t stop there, make some T-shirt versions for the older kids. Heck I’d wear one.
Hawaiian Shirt One Supplies
- Flower appliques
- Fabric glue or tape.
If your onesie is brand new you will need to wash it first. Pick your favorite tie-dye pattern and color combination from the kit and whip up a batch DIY onesies. You could also completely skip the tie-dye step and add the flower appliqué lei to a plain onesie.
You can get a lei on your DIY Hawaiian onesie several different ways. You could use fabric paint to add flowers. Perhaps you have some floral iron on patches. I opted to use a tropical floral fabric and create an appliqué.
Cut out the flowers for the lei from fabric. Place the flowers onto the tie-dye onesie in the pattern of a necklace. Use fabric glue, fabric tape or iron on adhesive backing to attach the flowers to the onesie.
Now all you need is an invite to a pool party or luau this summer and your outfit is ready!
