I discovered the Freezer Paper T-shirt method just before our Light the Night Walk in 2009 and I fell in love with it!! I can make ANY kinda of t-shirt I want for anybody and know that it is something that no one else has! I love it!!
How do I make a Freezer Paper Stencil You May Ask??? Well here ya go!
I use my Provo Craft Cricut to Make My Stencils. I cut the freezer paper just like regular paper and start there… BUT if you don’t have a Cricut. Don’t worry!! Here is how you can do it at home:
Things You’ll Need:
A t-shirt (or any other item you wish to stencil)
Reynold’s Freezer Paper
An Exacto knife or cuticle scissors
Fabric Paint (or any permanent paint that will withstand washing) (I use puffy paint and a A Sponge Brush)
An image you wish to stencil (you can print on off the computer!)
A Sponge Brush
A piece of cardboard or a shirt board (i use magazines for the onezies)
Here is how you do it!!!
Print, or draw your image onto a piece of paper.
Tape your computer paper to your freezer paper with the paper side up and the shiny side down.
Cut out the actual image (if printed on computer, you will be cutting away all the black printed area), leaving the outline of the image intact on your paper.
Remove the tape and computer paper.
Place your stencil onto your shirt and iron it on, using a dry setting, with the shiny side down, facing the shirt.
Place the cardboard between the front and back of your t-shirt, sliding it into the shirt under where you will be painting to prevent any bleeding of the paint through to the back of your shirt.
Once the paint is the color I like and dry, (I let it dry overnight) I carefully peel back the freezer paper.
TADA! An Awesome Shirt with your own Design!!!
Here are two I made for my Niece for Christmas!
