how to {family reunion t-shirts}

My hubby’s side of the family had a HUGE family reunion recently!  Can you find me?  I’m the one on the left holding my little man. 🙂  My other kiddos are all mixed in with their cousins.  Do you see my hubby?  Nope…he was out of town for the first couple of days & missed the family pictures. 🙁  {I know he was in BIG TrOuBLe!}  Buuut don’t you just LOVE our matching shirts? 🙂  They were easy breezy, too! 

Here’s how we made them:

First I cut a BUNCH of stencils out in vinyl using my Silhouette clip art & machine.  Then we applied the vinyl to our t-shirts.  TIP: Put a piece of cardboard between your shirt & the back before you start painting just in case!  I used this craft paint from Hobby Lobby…whatever paint you use…read the label first & make sure it says it’s OK to use for fabrics.  It will work much better.  It won’t be as stiff!  Trust me! 😉

Then tap your paint on.  Remember no back & forth.  Just light taps.  🙂  Let it dry completely. Then carefully remove your vinyl.  You might need to use a sewing needle to remove any tiny pieces of vinyl that are left, AND there you go fun fAmiLy shirts.  Don’t you just LOVE when everyone is matchy matchy!??!! I do! 🙂
