  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Download and print project template. Trace onto a piece of freezer paper so you have a stencil. Use craft knife and cut out stencil over cutting mat.
  • 2
    Place stencil on t-shirt and set into place with an iron.
  • 3
    Insert a Fashion Form or cardboard insert inside shirt and place on a flat work surface.
  • 4
    Visually divide the stencil into small five sections, one for each color, and mark the color on the side of the stencil for reference. You can use the photo as a reference or create your own color scheme!
  • 5
    Squeeze a generous amount of glitter bond onto what you are using as a palette.
  • 6
    Using sponge brush, apply glitter bond to the top section of the stencil. Shake your first color of glitter. Tap off excess and repeat if needed.
  • 7
    When applying the remaining colors, lightly apply adhesive overlapping the bottom portion of the previous color. Then shake new color overlapping the bottom section and then into the new section. Overlapping the colors is what will help you achieve the ombre look. (Tip: using a clean, new sponge brush for each color will produce the best results.)
