DIY Stenciled T-shirt

Show the world that you are a proud mom this mother's day and make this stenciled shirt for your little one.

For this project you'll need the following:
1. Freezer paper
(I still haven't had any luck finding this product! You may just order some from abroad and online OR you could simply use what I have been using ever since --- sticker or adhesive paper)

2. Fabric paint and brush or sponge
3. Cutter
4. Iron
5. Plain t-shirt

Step 1: Print out your template directly on the back surface of the waxy sheet behind sticker or ahesive paper

Step 2: Cut out the pattern with a cutter

 Step 3: Lay template over shirt and iron
(remember to keep waxy side down and place a piece of cardboard between the front and back of the shirt to prevent the paint from smearing through)

Step 4: Dab on paint

Wait for the paint to completely dry before peeling it off your template.

Happy Mother's day in advance!!!
