Father's day is coming up and I wanted to find a fun gift for my husband's father. I decided to have Rex make him a shirt. This idea wasn't my own. I've seen a few people make t-shirts from a child's drawing. Now that Rex is doing more than just scribbling I thought it would be cool to have him design a shirt for grandpa. Here's how it turned out.
Here's how we made it. I gave him a marker and asked him to draw a picture of G-pa. (That's what he calls him.)
I had him draw it on freezer paper shiny side down. (In case you're wondering, the three circles under the smile are teeth.)
Then I cut the drawing out with my exacto knife. I had to cut the lines a little bit thicker than he drew them just it would be more visible.
Then I ironed on the design. If you're not familiar with freezer paper stenciling, click HERE for my in depth video tutorial.
Then I painted the design and removed the paper.
Tadah! We are so excited to give it to G-pa on Sunday! (I'm pretty sure he doesn't see the blog too often, so hopefully it will be a surprise.)
Rex was pretty proud of himself.
That's all for today. See you tomorrow for Wake Up Wednesday. Thanks for reading.
