How to Make a Stenciled DIY T-Shirt

Making matching shirts for a family reunion, the local tee-ball team or as a summer camp activity is fun for crafters of all ages. With a stencil and some fabric paint, anyone can make a personalized tee - and you'll have just as much fun making it as you do wearing it at your event!

  • 3 Lay out stencils

    Lay stencils out on shirt.

  • 4 Dip dauber in paint

    Using your paper plate as a palette, dip the sponge dauber in the paint. Do not overload with paint.

  • 5 Apply paint

    Apply paint onto the shirt in the stencil area. Don't over work the paint, or paint will get under the stencil.

  • 6 Remove stencil

    Remove the stencil and clean with water. Let shirt dry completely before wearing.
