Ready to make some DIY Gilmore Girls Tshirts? I really might wear mine everyday until the revival. 😉 These shirts are super easy to make (and don’t cost a lot either!) All the stencils are included in our Gilmore Girls party pack – we’ve included Team Dean, Team Jess, Team Logan, Luke’s Diner logo, and an Honorary Gilmore Girl stencil as well. 🙂 You can find the pack HERE.
Fabric Paint (or Fabric Medium + Acrylic Paint)
First, trace the stencil or print directly onto freezer paper. (To make it easier, you can simply tape the freezer paper to a thicker piece of cardstock and run it through your printer.) Make sure the shiny part of the freezer paper is on the bottom, that way it will stick to your tshirt. Do not try using parchment or wax paper, it will not work. 🙂 Using an exacto knife, carefully cut out stencil.
Be sure to save the “insides” of your letters. You won’t need the actual letters as we are making a stencil, but the insides of the “e” for example will be needed later in the process, so you’ll want to keep those in a pile!
I’ve learned that you can pull off the stencil while the paint is still damp or after it has dried. Either works fine! After the paint is completely dry, run a warm iron over the paint. This will help the paint set and keep it from coming off in the wash.
Tada! Tshirt finished! If you pull off the stencil carefully, you should be able to use it again. 🙂 Stencils can be found HERE! If you make these tshirts – tag us! We’d LOVE to see them! @alexazurcher #alexazdesign
