Not to mention they are easy to make right in your home.
Here’s what you need:
1. plain t-shirt
2. paint (I use interior house paint)
4. Goo Gone
5. White glue
7. Scrap of cardboard
8. Shirt box
9. Paint brush
Step 1: Create your custom design. For this I designed my own heart / arrow logo and then added the letters using pre-cut foam letters. Because you’re creating your design in reverse, you need to wipe the sticky stuff off the back of the letters with Goo Gone, then glue them on the scrap of cardboard in reverse.
Step 2: Insert the shirt box into the body of the t-shirt so that when you apply the paint it doesn’t seep onto the back of the shirt.
Step 3: Paint the foam craft paper design. Be sure to get good coverage, but not too globby or it will spread when pressed on the shirt.
Step 4: Flip your personal design over and stamp it on the shirt – light pressing is enough to transfer the design onto the t-shirt.
Step 5: Gently pull up the cardboard stamp to reveal your design. If there are some areas where the paint is missing or light, you can always touch up with a paint brush.
This makes a great gift idea for kids to make for their teachers, god parents, grandparents or friends! You could even do this craft as a group for class projects or birthday parties.
