Neon Number Tee

Neon Number Tee!  so doable!  I must be on a DIY Tshirt kick – – 2 ideas this week!  This time it’s a fun number project, and a fun summer camp craft project, and well, just a fun project all-around.   Because everyone likes custom shirts and adding their own touch.

So fun, right?!  Let’s go ahead and get started – – you’ll need:


–freezer paper stencil (I used my Silhouette to cut out the number, but numbers are simple enough that you can easily hand cut it

–fabric spray paint (you can find it at Michael’s or probably any craft store)

Freezer paper is so fun to craft with because you can adhere it to fabric.  There is a bumpy side to it.  Make sure you trace your number and cut it out with the bumpy side down.  Then just place the stencil onto your fabric and iron it on – – the iron will heat up the bumpy side and temporarily stick it down to the fabric.

Now the fun part!  Put newspaper or cardboard inside the shirt (so it doesn’t bleed through) and spray in the general area of the number.  I put our numbers on the side, but you can put it wherever you want.  In the picture below, the freezer paper looks black because it soaked in the spray of the fabric paint.

I think they will be super-fun birthday shirts that can be worn and enjoyed all year round because they’re not too “birthday-y”.  My kids really loved help making them, which means that they’ll wear them and love to show off their creations.
