DIY Pole Dance Shirt

It is difficult to find a cute or affordable shirt that displays your love and affection of pole dance.

I have come up with a simple and fun solution to this problem. Below is a tutorial on how to make your very own pole dance shirt or tank top at home!

Pole Dancer TankDIY Pole Dance Shirt tutorial


Materials:
  • A shirt - any color except white
  • Scotch Self-Sealing Laminating Sheets - pack of 5 for $5-7 (Walmart)
  • Scissors
  • Bleach
  • Spray bottle - must be able to spray a fine mist
  • Cardboard
  • Gloves
Detailed Steps:

Step 1. Gather the supplies listed above. Go to any store and buy your favorite t-shirt or tank top. I recommend cotton or a cotton mix for best results. If you are buying for a group, like a bachelorette party, you can often find great deals on shirts at Old Navy, Wet Seal and American Apparel. I found mine on clearance at WalMart for $3 each.

Step 2. Find a silhouette of a pole dancer. Make the picture as big as possible and print it on a normal piece of 8.5 x 11 paper. I found mine at this website. I recommend choosing a simple picture because you will have to cut around it.

Step 3. Open one of the self-laminating sheets and insert the printed picture. Seal the sheets back together and make sure there are no wrinkles. You now have a self laminated picture of a pole dancer.

Step 4. Using a pair of craft scissors, carefully cut around the laminated pole dancer silhouette. This is the hardest part of this project so take your time. By the time you are finished you should just have a laminated pole dance picture (no background). Don't worry if the back of the laminated sheet falls off - you won't need it.

Step 5. Fill the spray bottle with 1/4 cup of bleach and 1/4 cup of water. Do a couple of test sprays to make sure the mixture comes out in a fine mist. I recommend doing this outside or in an open area where nothing can get harmed or damaged. Be sure to wear old clothes too!

Step 6. Lay the shirt flat on the ground and insert cardboard or old towels into the shirt to make sure the bleach does not bleed through the shirt.

Step 7. Carefully peel apart the laminated paper pole dancer silhouette. It should peel apart without any tearing because the laminating sheets are reusable. Discard the paper and you are now left with a piece of sticky laminating paper shaped like a pole dancer, just like a sticker! Place that sticker on your shirt - anywhere you desire. Press the sticker down firmly so it adheres to the fabric.

Step 8. If you have a tendency to trip and break things easily, you may want to put on gloves and glasses or goggles at this time. Now... using the spray bottle, spray the shirt 2-5 times around the image. You can spray into the air and let the mist hit the shirt - this will give a great look. You can also point the bottle at the shirt and spray about 2 feet away. It will give a bolder look.

Step 9. Wait 5-10 minutes then slowly peel the sticker off of the shirt. Remove the cardboard and toss the shirt in the dryer for 10 minutes to remove the bleach crystals. Do not wash the shirt right away. The bleach is still processing.

Tip: You can reuse the sticker several times before it begins to loose it's stickiness. Be sure to dry the top of the sticker before putting it onto another shirt.

Step 10. Remove the shirt from the dryer. It's ready to wear!


The best part about your new shirt is it's completely unique. You also have the satisfaction of knowing YOU made it. You go girl!

Coyote bar dancing or chair dancing... what's the difference?

MFA specializes in private parties for ladies nights out, bachelorette parties and birthday parties. With eight different party packages available, party planners are sure to find the perfect way to celebrate with the girls.

But, how do I choose? What is the difference?
This is a question we hear often! Everyone knows what pole dancing is, and many ladies ask what the difference is between the Exotic Chair Dance Party and the Coyote Dance Party.

If most of the girls in your party are cheeky, wild, bold, saucy, and/or brazen, then the Coyote Cabaret is for you! 

Coyote Dance
Ain't no party like a Coyote Dance Party!
We teach you how to strut your stuff so you can go out and show off your moves on bar tops across Nashville! Not only is it a fun way to be the most bad-ass looking bunch of chicks around, but you will surprise everyone when you climb up on the bar and let them know what kind of party this is!

 Plus, this is Nashville! Home of Country Music stars like Alan Jackson, Dolly Parton, Faith Hill, Keith Urban, Sara Evans, as well as rock stars like Jack White, Black Keys, Kings of Leon and so many more. So, a good ole' bar dance is perfect for this country town with a twist! (For more information on Coyote Dance, check out this recent blog about it!)

If most of the girls in your party are spicy, racy, seductive, risqué, suggestive, and/or flirtatious, then the Chair Dance is for you!

Chair Dancing
Add some sultry to your party with a Chair Dance!
The Chair Dance is a great one to take home and show the love of your life a little something you learned while you were away.
Chair Dance lesson

 We show you how to be enticing and provocative with sensual moves on the floor and chair that will have your partner breathless. And, you will learn how to flirt with your eye, lips, and hips. So if you want to be confident in your sex-appeal, seduce someone, and do it all with nothing but you and a chair, choose a Chair Dance for your party.
