Freezer Paper T-Shirt Stencils

We just recently got back from a Fabulous Family Reunion.  Part of the fun there was making these cute stenciled t-shirts for the kids.
I think they turned out pretty cute!  What do you think???

I did learn some tricks along the way.  

#1-  Make sure your craft razor is really sharp, it makes for cleaner lines when cutting out the stencils. 

 #2-  Make sure you iron the freezer paper (shiny side down) on a very flat surface, it helps to adhere it to the shirt more evenly.

#3-  Make sure you put something like a piece of cardboard of card stock inside the shirt under the stenciled part so the paint doesn't leak onto the back of the shirt.

#4-  Use a sponge brush, and use light dabbing motions to apply the paint.  I found that regular painting just aloud the paint to seep into the non-stenciled part.
 I followed instructions from this tutorial from you can find it here.
 I found these stencils for you guys here:
(some are just pumpkin carving stencils, but they still work great)
Super Man

Just Google t-shirt stencils for different options.

This was a fun Project! Now I'm going to make some for me!  Happy Crafting!
