- freezer paper
- exacto knife
- cutting mat
- fabric paint
- pen or pencil
- plain t-shirt
Step 1: Create your design either freehand or use a stencil. I noticed that a shamrock happens to look like three hearts put together and since Valentine’s Day, I had some spare hearts around to trace. Easy, right? This is a great step for the kids to do
Step 2: After you are finished drawing, cut along the outline of your shamrock with the exacto knife. (Note: This is not a step for kids!)
Step 3: Make sure to trim off any excess paper within the design. Excess paper will mar your design and show up on the t-shirt. Now is the time to be a perfectionist!
Step 4: Heat your iron and place the shamrock on the t-shirt precisely where you would like it to be featured on the shirt. Once it is placed, iron on! The freezer paper will adhere to the fabric temporarily creating a stencil of the shamrock. (Note: This is not a step for kids!)
Step 5: Paint! This is always my favorite part and the kids love to get in on this step. I only used one coat of paint, but depending on the color of your shirt and paint, you may need to apply more coats.
Step 6: Let the paint dry a little and peel off the freezer paper revealing your new shirt! Let the paint dry completely before donning your new Shamrock Shirt!
