Project Instructions

  • 1
    Make stencil: Use the pencil to trace a heart of desired size onto one of the pieces of cardboard. Cut heart out with craft knife. Place heart up against t-shirt to ensure nine of them will fit on t-shirt. When you are satisfied with how the hearts look, use the pencil to lightly draw an outline of nine hearts on the t-shirt that are identical in size in a pattern resembling a tic tac toe game.

    Prepare: Cover work surface with plastic tablecloth. Lay t-shirt out flat on this surface. Insert the second piece of cardboard between the front and back of the shirt. Use plastic plastic bags or paper towels to cover any areas of the t-shirt around the stencil to prevent overspray on unwanted areas.
  • 3
    Paint: Shake cans well before use. Referring to photo, if needed, use Pink to spray the three hearts in the top left corner. Then use Purple to spray the three hearts in the middle. Finally, use Blue to spray the three hearts in the bottom right corner. You can allow some color overlap on the hearts while spraying to create a subtle ombre effect.

    Finish: Allow the t-shirt to dry before washing or wearing. Note: Project time does not include this drying time.
