What you need to make our Fun DIY Stamped T-Shirt:

Fun DIY Stamped T-Shirt

  • Plain t-shirt in your choice of color
  • 2-3 different colors of acrylic paint
  • Sponge stencil brushes (you could also use the eraser on the back of a pencil)
  • Large piece of cardboard or foam board

  • Clothespins or clips


Stretch t-shirt over cardboard or foam board and secure into place using clothespins.

Center stencil on t-shirt over the chest area.

Holding the stencil with one hand dab acrylic paint in one color around the stencil with brush. You’ll want the paint to partially touch the stencil so you can see the shape when you are done. Repeat with the next color like so:
