Step 3: After the outline is cut out, cut out the eyes and set those aside. FYI: These separate eyes technically don't make it a stencil but they're easy enough to iron on separately.

Step 5: Place the freezer paper stencil where you'd like it on your t-shirt, shiny side down. Iron it on using circular motions. Make certain it's completely adhered to the shirt.

Step 9: You'll need to do a couple of coats at least, depending on the opaqueness of your paint. In between coats you can apply a cool blow dryer to speed up drying. Each layer should dry to the touch in about 5 minutes.
