Monster Energy T Shirt

 

At a recent trip to the mall with the kiddos, my oldest son      fell-in-love-with          begged-mom-for       just-had-to-have-or-else-he-would-die   admired  this Rob Dyrdek Monster Energy T~shirt!!!    It was a pretty cool shirt but at the low price of $35., mom couldn’t resist saying, “I can make that!”  {while thinking I’m going to save BIG $$$$$}

I SCORED huge “mommy brownie points” with these T-shirts!!!

These shirts where made with my Cricut machine, SCAL,  freezer paper, and textile/fabric medium.  It’s a lot easier to apply dark paint colors on a lighter shirt but it can be done on a darker shirt as well.  You just need to apply 3 thin coats of paint to get complete coverage over the dark t-shirt.  

The only draw-back to these t-shirts turning out this  great …… that they want one in every color combination!  Ohhh and don’t think for a moment that my daughter hasn’t asked for one in pink!!!   And it only gets better because no their friends are asking for one too! 

But I have a little surprise for them …… I’m going to plan a  little t-shirt making party at the house and they can make their own.   Can you see it??????    T-shirts and Tacos Party

  4. I am so going to have to try this. You make it seem to easy! :) Now I have just one question - where might one find freezer paper? And is there a brand I want or will any do? Thanks!
