I figured some of you may want to make a custom t-shirt, especially with holidays coming up. I made a video tutorial to show you how to create a unique shirt using freezer paper as a stencil! The possibilities are endless :) Here’s what I show you how to make:

And here’s the video tutorial:

    Jenny – Loved the tute! You are so talented and creative. I’m stealing your Martha McKinney’s idea and starting a craft group of my own. This month we’re making your wreaths. Can’t wait! :)

    So cute and easy!! I’m totally off to buy everything I need tomorrow to make my candycorn shirt :)

    ps… Good thing Martha was around to make sure everything went smoothly. What would we do without Martha? Oh and I’m going to sign up for Marthas this month – yay! Just haven’t gotten around the paying – will do hopefully tomorrow!!

    What a great project! This is something my kids and I can do together! The perfect accessory would be some cute little felt bat snap clips! Just use your stencil to cut the bats out of felt, and accent with some stitching or some little wiggle eyes!

    I LOVE your tutorials!! Thank you so much for taking your time to put these up! I made your nap mat over a year ago and I am making my daughter an incredible costume for Halloween. The stenciling will be PERFECT for the symbol on the from of the outfit!! Thanks again!

    So I made the Incredibles symbol and it turned out decent! It was a little tricky putting 3 different colors against each other and trying to cut the stencils exactly the same. I had so much fun doing it though and I would love to do the bats. I couldnt find the print out you used. Can you tell me how to find them or any other good ones?

    Hey Jenny,

    Another question for you …. do you think I could use my cricut to make and cut out stencil? Was wondering if you have tried it. I would use the freezer paper instead of cardstock. THANKS!

    Wendy, I got my cricut after this tutorial and have used vinyl to cut out a stencil. Then I used the vinyl directly on the shirt instead of freezer paper. Works great!

    I haven’t tried to cut freezer paper with the cricut but I’m sure with the right pressure and speed settings it could work.
