Eraser-Stamped St. Patrick’s Day Shirt

Last year I made these really cute St. Patrick’s Day shirts that I stenciled with vinyl.  I’m sad that the kids grew out of them.  This year, I did something different and used freezer paper.  If you’ve never done freezer paper stenciling, you are in for a treat!  No fancy cutting machines or vinyl required.  And I’m especially loving Audrey’s shirt this year because I got to try out pencil eraser stamping! (**edit: also click here to take a look at these marble painted shirts!)

To make this eraser-stamped DIY St. Patrick’s Day shirt you will need:
clover pattern
– a shirt
Freezer Paper (found mine at the grocery store)
– fabric paint
– pencil with an unused eraserLet’s get started!Trace the clover shape on the NON-shiny side of a piece of freezer paper.

Cut out the clover shape.  If you were doing a more intricate design, you could use an X-Acto knife, but scissors worked fine here.

Put the clover, shiny side down, on your shirt.  Iron it on.

Steal a pencil from your son (ssshhhh…. he has so many, he won’t notice).  Dip the eraser in green paint and start stamping around the clover.  Make sure to put another piece of freezer paper inside the shirt to keep the paint from leaking through.

I put the dots closer together around the clover and then gradually faded them out.

Let the paint dry and peel off the freezer paper.  Follow the instructions on your paint to heat set it (usually this involves ironing or throwing it in the dryer).  There you go!  Cute and simple!
