Designing t-shirts together at a family reunion or summer barbecue is not only fun, but also makes a great keepsake to commemorate the occasion! This craft brings everyone closer as creative talents are pooled together.
Before your get-together, use the Crayola Cutter to make a stencil for everyone to trace in the center of the t-shirt. The stencil might be the family name, a picnic slogan, or other design. Having the same slogan or design on every t-shirt will give all of the t-shirts a uniform look so everyone will feel like part of a team! Cut several stencils for everyone to share.
Plan ahead to be sure everyone has a t-shirt. Craft stores are a great place to pick up t-shirts at reasonable prices. Gather sizes ahead of time to be sure you have enough t-shirts or ask everyone to bring a plain 100% cotton T-shirt.
At your event, cover tables with recycled newspaper or old plastic tablecloths. Put newspaper inside each t-shirt so the colors do not bleed through to the other side.
TIP: Placing a piece of sandpaper inside the t-shirt—over the newspaper—holds the fabric in place so you can draw more easily!
Use masking tape to secure t-shirts to the table top. TIP: The tighter you pull the fabric, the easier it is to draw on it.
Design the t-shirts. Use the stencils to trace the slogan in the center of your t-shirt.
