We don't know about you, but the approach of sunny summer days has us constantly daydreaming about building sand castles on the beach! Even if you won't be setting sail on an ocean adventure any time soon, you can still dress like it! Check out how easy it is to create this anchor tee in the span of an afternoon with freezer paper and Tulip ColorShot.
- Tulip® ColorShot® Instant Fabric Color - Neon Blue
- White T-shirt
- Freezer paper
- Anchor pattern
- Craft knife
- Paper towels
Find an anchor pattern that you like online and print and enlarge it to fit onto your shirt. (Make sure to wash and dry your shirt without fabric softener before you start your project!) Trace your anchor pattern onto freezer paper and cut it out with scissors or a craft knife to create a stencil, then iron it waxy side down onto your shirt to create a temporary seal that will hold the stencil in place. Cover any exposed areas of the shirt with paper towels to prevent any potential overspray mishaps.
Spray several light coats of Neon Blue ColorShot over the stencil opening, letting the color dry in between coats. Tip: Several light coats are better than one heavy coat to help prevent the color from bleeding underneath the stencil. Once you are happy with your color coverage, let dry and remove your stencil.
You will definitely be the fish that stands out in the sea when you sport a DIY anchor tee that's this adorable!
