Welcome to Teach Me Tuesday, friends!
Can you believe it’s already December? And that Christmas is nearly 22 days away?! AHHHH! I promised myself that I would slow down a bit more this holiday season and really take it all in…because each year it seems to pass by more quickly. So over the long weekend, my daughter and I got our Christmas craft on! We are very excited to share the DIY Rudolph Shirt we made… and it’s so easy you can make one too!
What you will need:
Fabric paint (or fabric medium to add to craft paint)
Red pom pom
Newspaper & paper towels (for clean up)
A child’s hands and foot (preferably still attached to the child ;)
Lay out the newspaper so that you have a covered work space on the floor. Slip the cardboard into the shirt (to prevent paint bleeding through) and lay it on the newspaper.
Paint the bottom of your child’s foot with brown fabric paint and press their foot onto the middle of the shirt. Lift the food straight up and wash foot.
Paint your child’s hands with a darker brown fabric paint. Press the hands down on the shirt near the top of the foot stamp. Lift straight up and wash hands.
Paint eyes on the deer and use fabric glue to adhere the red pom pom to the shirt.
We added glitter to the antlers and green puff paint dots to the collar.
Tips: Allow 24 hours of dry time before wearing. Wash inside out in cold water and hang to dry.
So easy and such a fun and festive shirt for the holiday season. My daughter wore her shirt to a Christmas party and received a ton of compliments from her little friends. It’s a keeper for sure! Oh and the adorbs head wrap she’s wearing? That’s a Vintage Rose Wrap of course. We have a large collection…go check them out!
Thanks for hanging out with us for a bit today! I have another fun Christmas project to share with you tomorrow, so I will see you then!
