Family Friendly Craft: Custom Kids Tee Shirt

I found a super cool project on the inside of a cereal box today and I just had to share it with you!

It was a box of Fruity Pebbles, on the back was a coupon for “Buy one graphic kids tee, get a plain kids tee free” from Old Navy and as I was cutting it, I saw on the inside of the box that you could go online to and download a stencil that you can tape to your free tee shirt.Or, if you don’t want a Fred Flintsone shirt, you can get some other, free, stencils here:

What you’ll need:

  • Fabric Paint
  • Printed Stencil
  • Small Paint Brushes
  • Pencil
  • Cardboad -preferably from your cereal box, hello recycling!
  • Craft Knife, for grown-ups to use
  • One Plain Tee Shirt, that you can get at Old Navy for free!
  • Paper Bag
  • Iron

Put the cardboard inside the tee shirt, under the area where you want to paint. Have the grown-up cut out the stencil and place over where you put the cardboard.

Use clear tape to hold the stencil in place and trace it with your pencil. Remove the stencil and paint in as you like. When dry, usually about 4-5 hours, you may heat-set the fabric paint by cutting a paper bag so it lays flat and iron over it on the highest setting without steam for 2-3 minutes. When you first wash the tee shirt, turn it inside out and wash as you regularly would.
