No one will say WHOOO or WHO? when they see you in this bright and fun owl-themed t-shirt. The surprise bonus? The fabric paint used to embellish the owl is glow in the dark!

Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1-1/2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Pre-wash shirt (don’t use fabric softener) to remove sizing. Iron so the shirt is smooth with no wrinkles, especially where the transfer will be placed.
  • 2
    Carefully cut apart the designs on the transfer; you will end up with two birds, two flowers and one owl.
  • 3
    Follow the directions provided on the iron-on (they will ensure success with your iron-on). Make sure you peel off the transfer as directed, while the transfer is still warm. Start with sleeves, followed by the owl and finishing with the flowers.
  • 4
    Place t-shirt in form.
  • 5
    Practice working with the paints on scrap paper. Give the bottle one downward shake to remove bubbles. Clean off tip so that it will create a clean line.
  • 6
    Start at the top of the design so your hand doesn’t accidently hit an area you painted. Add swirls, dots and squiggles to the owl and the flowers on the branches. When “coloring in” remember that this is glow in the dark paint, so try and outline as much of the owl as you can so it will be seen!
  • 7
    Place the shirt out of reach of your family and animals so that it will completely dry.
  • 8
    Follow directions for washing t-shirt after it is worn.
