DIY God Save McQueen tank

I've been eyeballing the "God Save McQueen" tees, etc. that have been popping up more frequently. I'm not one to spend money if there is the slightest chance that I can make it myself, so off I dove into my haggard closet to locate a small jar of black fabric paint and hopefully come across an over-sized tank top in the treacherous process (I'm getting sick of Hanes t-shirts). Luckily, I ended up finding the paint, not in my closet, but in the garage with my school shiz I've yet to unpack. A tank top was found elsewhere among the rubble.

Upon starting this venture, I knew I wanted to incorporate the McQueen logo as well as the McQueen skull (most popular, I suppose, on this scarf), so I was pretty iffy about getting them onto the fabric via lack of screen printing devices...although now that I think of it, I probably could have just DIY'd that too...hmm too little, too late. Despite this, I feel like I managed to come up with a delightfully satisfying finished product. I ended up just painting a giant skull on the back of the tank and painting "God Save McQueen" on the front. Below is how to make your own!
