Every year I buy the kids Valentines Day shirts from the store. It adds up. This year I was fretting because as I have a few million times mentioned we are going to Disney World/ Florida this March, and money is SUPER tight. I decided to do the Canada Day stencil idea that I do for Canada Day every year.
I used a floor tile, which you can buy at the dollar store.
I then traced the shape of a heart and cut it with scissors.
Next I hot glued an old used ribbon bobbin onto the the bottom of the floor tile (paper side).
I then mixed together fabric medium and acrylic craft paint in the ratio
that the fabric medium bottle suggested.
I put a piece of cereal box in the T-shirt to prevent the paint bleeding to the back side.
God help me, I let the kids each do their own shirt!
We painted the paint onto the heart, fairly thickly with a sponge brush.
Grace made patterns on hers with a Q-tip.
Then we centered the heart onto the T-shirt and pressed it down.
Voila, Valentines T-shirts that were super fun to make, look great and cost sooooo much less!
