DIY Heart T-Shirt | CatchMyParty.com

Homemade t-shirts have never been easier with using freezer paper! The freezer paper actually adheres to the fabric after ironing, making a perfect stencil for creating your own designer t-shirt. My daughter Ella just LOVED making this heart thermal tee with me.

Here's how we did it...

Supplies:

  • Freezer paper
  • T-shirt
  • Fabric paint
  • Foam paint brush
  • Heart shape or any shape you want to place on shirt
  • Iron
Materials for a heart T-Shirt | CatchMyParty.com

Directions:

We chose to use hearts for our design. If you have heart cookie cutters you can easily trace these onto your freezer paper. Do not trace on the glossy side.

Have a parent cut out each heart using an xacto knife or pair of scissors.

Place your template (glossy side down) onto your shirt. Iron on the template. The waxy side of freezer paper should adhere to the t-shirt, making a seal.

Using your fabric paint and foam brush, paint your hearts. My daughter got to do this! Make sure to place a piece of freezer paper in the middle of the shirt so the paint does not seep through.

Allow your shirt to dry and simply peel away freezer paper template!

This makes for a great party activity! This would be a great way to paint tee shirts at a Minecraft party, for example. It's also an easy way to make personalized party favor for kids to bring home or a cute shirt to wear on Valentine's Day.
