Thrifty idea to jazz up hand me downs or stained clothes...

 Wild man shows off his new stencil shirt. Want the low down? Sure ya do. It's easy!

First, do a quick google image shirt for "_______ stencil" and pick something that is easy to cut out. For our first try, little man picked a dirt bike. I like to use temporary spray glue to adhere the stencil to the shirt. Not too much, or the paper sticks.

Be sure to put a piece of paper IN the shirt to keep the dye from bleeding through.

Then you just give your little one a spray bottle with dye in it. We use Tulip. More water = lighter color. Less water = brighter color. It's all pretty easy. In fact, it seems to keep just fine. I've had bottles on the craft table on the back deck for a month which are still fine to use.

Don't spray too heavily or the dye beads up on the stencil and can "drip."

 I LOVE this cat shirt, but it's a good example of a "drip." Once the dye has dried a little, you just peel the stencil off. And ta da! Reverse stencil. Seriously now... how easy was that?

My Diva's shirt. If you have a 10 year old, you KNOW who One Direction is... Or 1D. We just printed the text on a word program and cut it out.

This is a great craft for shirts that are hand me downs & need jazzed up or are stained! It would work on any piece of clothing. We plan on trying this with jeans and items we purchase from Goodwill for our fall wardrobe!
