Paint a T-Shirt

Perfect T Shirt painting made easy

finished painted T-shirt


Painting a T shirt is so easy, it's a perfect way to spend the afternoon and, what's more, you have something great to wear at the end of it. Either you can paint the T-shirt for your children or they can do it themselves (which is more fun). Either way theyíll love wearing the end result. The best part is that you can buy plain white T shirts incredibly cheaply, so painting on them is no more expensive than painting on a big piece of paper. You canít beat personalising your own clothes, and itís much more fun, so much cheaper and about 1000 times more personal than buying a slogan or branded T-shirt.
. . . Wondering what you should paint? You can get ideas from anywhere, off the web, from the TV or from your kidsí latest favourite film release. Fabric paint is not expensive and if you only buy a few colours you can mix a bit of acrylic paint with them to get the exact colour you want.
. . . The key with any designing or making project is to have a good idea of what you want to do before you actually start making. Getting an idea worked out beforehand isnít some magic gift that some people have and some people donít. Firstly, itís a trick anyone can learn, and secondly whoever is doing the designing, however experienced they are, they have to work at it a bit. All you have to do is start with something you like. Simplify it in your mind, or on paper, so that you are not making your job too difficult; remember simpler is better. More often the best images that look really good on a T-shirt are the simple, striking images. If you feel moved to include text or a slogan in your design, then type it up on the computer first and increase the font size so that it is as big as you can get it then printing it out and incorporate it into your drawn design. Youíll be able to trace round the words to get a really professional finish. This project comes with a blank template of some little T shirts so that you can start sketching out your ideas right away. Donít necessarily jump at the first idea you have, develop it, refine it and make it better. Any extra effort you put in at the beginning getting the design right will pay off in the finished article.

Younger children might not have the patience to see the whole project through. Get them to design the T shirt on the little T shirt blanks and then enlarge the image and paint most of it on to the shirt yourself, leaving a small bit for them to finish off.
. . . Hand painted T shirts make a wonderful and very inexpensive gift, so if youíre wondering what to give someone for a birthday present, why not paint them a T shirt. Follow our instructions for the best results, just click on the paper format you have, to download it.

Funky pompom turtleDadcando has some truly amazing funky pompom projects, and making a pompom couldn't be easier or more instantly rewarding. You don't even have to have wool, you can make a pompom from any lightweight plastic bag, bin-liner or sandwich bag.
snadwich bag pompom

This tiny little pompom was made from a transparent blue plastic sandwich bag. Perfect for making little pompom creatures to decorate the top of your pens and pencils.

step 1 of how to make a pompom, cut the discs

All you need is a piece of cardboard, which you cut into two same sized rings. step 2 of how to make a pompom, thread wool bundles

You bundle up some wool into 2m lengths and thread them through the rings about 8 at a time (or a plastic bag). step 3 of how to make a pompom, keep threading the bundles
Keep threading the wool through the ring until you can't fit any more through.

step 4 of how to make a pompom, cut the wool round the edge

Push the tip of a pair of scissors into the wool and between the discs inside and cut round the rim. step 5 of how to make a pompom, tie off the wool

Tie a few lengths of wool round the pompom bundle between the cardboard discs and then remove the discs by slipping them off the wool or cutting them.

step 6 of how to make a pompom, the finished pompom That's it. It couldn't be much simpler, but it is only the start. Both boys and girls love making pompoms and dadcando's projects have easy to follow instructions and the beautifully designed printed image patterns will make sure that your pompom looks fabulous as well as being something really wacky and memorable, and theyíre all so quick and easy to do.

So, beg or borrow a ball of wool off someone to get you going, or visit your local fabric shop and buy a ball or two. There are some crazy wools out there, have a look at the wonderful pompom William designed in Your Models, using a fun multicoloured wool. I guarantee once you start making pompoms with your kids, they won't want to stop.
