DIY How to make Dude Family Shirts
I was inspired by this etsy item. It looks to me like it is screen printed. I looked into screen printing but it seemed like too much of an investment. So I decided to make it with fabric paint since I had all the needed supplies, I just had to buy the shirts.
Shirts for each person you are making one for
Full Sheet stickers
Foam paint brush
Something for cutting out the letters (I used a cricut machine)
Extra shirt/fabric you don't mind ruining
Cardboard (big enough to sit inside the shirt and cover the whole design, I cut up a diaper box)
These are the colors of paint I used. All of the dudes were in navy blue. The big was in royal blue. The little was made by mixing royal blue and white. The mrs was made by mixing deep red and white.
Cut the words out of sticker paper. Sorry I didn't get a picture of this actual step, I wasn't even thinking about pictures then. I used a cricut machine to cut out the words and it worked awesome for this. I don't own a cricut, but I have an awesome aunt who owns one and let me use hers. If you don't own one or have an awesome crafty aunt/family member/friend who has one then you may be able to use a stencil and scalpel knife thing, but it will be a lot harder to get the words so precise. Maybe you can check at local schools, craft stores and such? They may have one that they'd let you use possibly for a fee. Or see if you can find your local Stampin' Up representative, they may have one or know someone who does who could let you use it. This would be a great way to make some crafty friends :)
Peel off the back of the sticker.
What do you think? Are you going to make some? Or would you like to order some?
