I really wanted to get the monkey a Valentine's Day t-shirt, but I had a hard time finding one for a boy. They have tons of super cutie girlie stuff, but not a whole lot for little guys. I decided to make my own. :) Well, I couldn't make just one t-shirt, so I made one for each of the kiddos at Kason's daycare.
I think these are adorable and super affordable! I got the t-shirts at Wal-Mart for $3.50. I used my Sure Cuts a Lot software to design each of the emblems, and cut the freezer paper with my Cricut (you could also trace the design onto freezer paper and cut it out by hand like I did HERE).
I first heard about freezer paper stenciling from Cheri at I am Momma - Hear Me Roar, and I always follow her easy tutorial HERE.
I used plain ole craft paint and mixed it with Delta Ceramcoat Textile Medium. The textile medium turns any acrylic paint into a washable fabric paint. How cool is that?
Here are the designs:
The heart breaker design is perfect for any little man in your life.
This is Kason's Love Rocks T...it matches his mailbox. :)
I LOVE this peace and love T! The L appears a little dark in the pic, but it is actually red.
I think the tic-tac-toe, hearts in a row T is too sweet.
This one is by far my fav! I love the color combo and the sweet, "hidden" message. You know if you mouth the words olive juice it looks like you are saying I love you! :)
I think the kiddos are going to look adorable for Valentine's Day! I can't wait to see pics of all of them in their t-shirts!
I love freezer paper stenciling! It is super simple and pocketbook friendly. You could easily add a little Valentine's flair to your home by using the same technique for dish towels, place mats, napkins, or even on a canvas for some wall art!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
I'll be linking up to these wonderful parties!
