Our family loves to go camping. So every year I try to create a new camping t-shirt for the boys.

DIY Cooler Camping T-shirt:
I started by cutting the words out of freezer paper. I used my cricut cutting machine but you could easily cut them out by hand, it would just take a bit longer.
I ironed the stencil onto the t-shirt.
And created a text bubble and cooler stencil as well. These stencils I just sketched onto the freezer paper with a pencil then cut out. I ironed these onto the shirt as well.
Then I painted inside of the stencils using acrylic fabric paint. Be sure to put a scrap piece of paper between the front and back of the shirt so that the paint doesn’t seep to the back of the shirt.
Using puffy fabric paints and a brush I free handed the details on the cooler.
Now the boys have some pretty rad t-shirts to wear camping this summer.
Thanks for reading ~ be sure to stop by tomorrow for more boy t-shirt goodness!!
So cute! Awesome job on your free hand! Confession: I’ve never tried freezer paper stenciling! I really need to just do it already! And I don’t allow my boys to say hate, stupid, or kill either :) Excited for this week!
I must say that this is really a great idea to design a t shirt .I am really impressed by your working.This tells a lot about your fashion sense and i truly say that this is really a productive step to buy mens cotton t shirts.
oh my goodness! i love this! I’m pinning it to my Silhouette board on Pinterest. Thanks!
I know this is an old post, but I wanted to try and make this shirt for my daughter’s camp and I was wondering if you happen to know the name of the font you used for the lettering and what size you printed it off as? Thank you so much for sharing! I LOVE how you did this shirt!
I’m sorry, I totally cant remember! Have fun though <3
