Just in case Olaf isn’t your thing (really though, how can Olaf not be your thing?!), we have come up with 3 different snowman prints to make your own Snowman T-Shirts this year!
My son started to show an affinity for themed clothing, and after continuing to ask to wear his ‘Halloween shirt’ well after the holiday, I decided it was time to get crafty. The only problem? I don’t love most holiday themed clothing found in the store. Lucky for this little boy, he has a Mom who knows her way around digital software and a paintbrush.
Make your own Snowman T-Shirts.
Customizing your own T-Shirt is really rather simple. The hardest part is finding the right graphic to use. Which is where I come in.
Freezer Paper Stencil.
For 2 of my shirts, I used the basic freezer paper stencil method…
- Transfer your image onto freezer paper by simply tracing it.
- Cut out with Xacto knife.
- Iron freezer paper onto T-Shirt, shiny side down.
- Paint using sponge brush and fabric paint. Make sure to put a piece of tin foil in the middle of your T-Shirt before painting, so as not to get paint on the back of your shirt.
- Allow to dry, and remove freezer paper by peeling away.
Iron-on Transfer Image.
For my last shirt, I made it even SIMPLER and used iron-on transfer paper. All you need to do for this is simply print out the image onto the special paper, and iron it on. Make sure you reverse your image so that the font isn’t backwards!
It truly couldn’t be any simpler. With T-shirts picked up from our local chain store for less than $4 each, my son now has 3 new shirts he can choose from. And I can finally hide away that Halloween shirt so he can conveniently ‘forget’ about it. ha!
TO DOWNLOAD THE GRAPHICS:
Simply right click on any of the images below to save them to your computer.
I am particularly excited about the metaphoric snowboarding ‘snowman’ graphic, as we are set to hit the slopes later on this year. YEAH!
I hope you are having a great day!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
