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 PebblesPlay.com/Rocktivities 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: http://www.spraypaintstencils.com
What you’ll need:
- Fabric Paint
- Printed Stencil
- Small Paint Brushes
- 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
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.
