Video: How to Make DIY Disney Shirts
Before getting started, gather all the supplies and materials you’ll need for the project.
- freezer paper
- X-acto knife
- puffy paint
- paint brush
- silhouette paper print out of your favorite character (find a template Pinterest or a similar site).
Step 1: Use freezer paper and trace your silhouette with a pen.
Step 2: Next, cut out the silhouette shape using an X-ACTO knife.
Step 3: Get your t-shirt and a hot iron. Pick out a spot where you want the painted character to appear and place the cut out.
Then, iron the freezer paper cut out onto the shirt.
Step 4: Use puffy paint and color in the character.
After the painting is done, peel the freezer paper off and let the paint dry.
Finally, wear it on your next Disney vacation:
Making DIY Disney shirts is a great way to bond as a family, especially before you take off for your trip. Additionally, creating unique apparel that matches your family members is also a practical way to keep track of each other in large park crowds. With a little creativity and these simple steps, you can make personalized Disney shirts that will bring your family closer together and create lasting memories.
