Chalkboard Message T-shirts DIY
- Plain t-shirts
- Freezer paper
- Black Fabric Paint and Foam Brush
- An Iron
- Puffy Paint (Optional if you want to personalise)
T-shirts bought on line for a couple of pounds each.First make the call out template. Draw a simple shape in the freezer paper. Cut it out, and iron the template on to the t shirt using a hot iron with the steam function turned off. Make sure the edges are well ironed down to get a good seal. Place a piece of cardboard or a few sheets of newspaper inside the t-shirt to stop bleeding through to the back of the t-shirt. Apply 2 coats of black fabric paint on the template, allowing time to dry between each coat. Once dry, place a piece of greaseproof paper over the paint and iron on high for a few minutes to seal in place. We gave to each of the girls at Abbis party along with a box of chalk so they could add their own message on the shirts.
Ready for the Party
Abbi took hers for a spin before the party guests arrived.All the girls wore their t-shirts at the Party. Pigs were also in attendance at the party! See details of the party here.Chalkboard Message T-shirts expertly modelled by Abbi and her friend Lulu.
The chalk can easily be washed off in washing machine, or with a damp cloth. The chalkboard should stay in place on a medium wash (check the washing instructions on your fabric paint)
