Spread kindness around the world! Let’s create an army of kindness spreading kids and adults with this easy to make DIY Kindness Warrior Shirt. Includes step by step instructions on how to make this project using a Cricut, along with a free SVG cut file compatible with Cricut or Silhouette.
The world needs more kindness. This morning when I was watching Instagram stories, I watched model and instagram sensation Brock O’Hurn talk about kindness. He said that there are a lot of people out there see kindness as a weakness but that it’s actually a strength. He shared that you never know what someone is going through and that the gift of kindness is the greatest gift you can give.
The timing of seeing those Instagram stories felt perfectly timed because I had completed this DIY Kindness Warrior Shirt Project the day before after having had it in my head for quite some time.
For months I had been wanting to make a sweatshirt that said “Choose Kindness” but I was looking for the perfect hoodie to put the words on. Then while out shopping I found the camouflage hoodie that I used for this project and bought it. Suddenly “Choose Kindness” (which BTW is an amazing shirt idea that I’ll make one day soon) suddenly didn’t feel quite powerful enough to go with the camo. I let the project idea percolate in my head for a few days while I worked on other things and then one day it hit me “Kindness Warrior”.
Can you imagine if there was an army of people across the world with the pure purpose of spreading kindness? Can you imagine how the world would change for the better? I say that we should start that army ourselves and make our mission spreading kindness each and ever day!
I’m really excited to share this project with you today.
If you don’t have a Cricut or a Silhouette to DIY this project yourself, please send me an email at [email protected] and we’ll figure out how to get you an iron-on decal that you can stick to your own shirt.
