Does anyone know how to make this?: http://www.livejournal.com/community/t_shirt_surgery/1042364.html

I have never done any stencilling before. Is the text stenciled? thanks Smiley

found these around halloween...for pumpkin carving...but it's got GOLLUM!!!

hope this helps...how's your writing...you could always free-hand the words, it might look creepy cool like Gollum does!  Smiley

another thought...you could do an iron on transfer...

I love these stencils!  Does anyone have advice on how to do this?  ie what materials to use, ets.  Or a link with instructions?

a good way to do t-shirt stencils is to print out your stencil on a transparency (make sure you have a good black and white image that will stencil will). cut out the black parts with an exacto knife..

an easy way to put these on a shirt is with spray paint, but that may not stay on as long as you'd like. (it looks quite cool though!)

another option is to get a screenprinting squeegee and some screenprinting ink. you'd also need a silkscreen. then you lay down the transparency with the silkscreen on top and squeegee the ink through the transparency that way. i'm sure there are more detailed instructions on other sites.. but i hope this helps give you a general idea. there's another topic somewhere on craftster about stenciling tee's.

my boyfriend spray painted a stencil on a shirt and it's still going strong...

otherwise, I would try fabric paint... it may be cool to use iron-on letters and such too

these shirts are cool but overpriced and totally DIY do-able!! http://www.ghostly.com
