I made a stencil of my face and painted it onto a shirt for me to wear.  Cheesy



I used freezer paper and silver paint.

Here's the picture I used to make the stencil:


Me wearing the shirt:

It stretched a bit, but I still love it.

This is so cute!  What a great idea!  The paint is so even it looks screen printed.

If you look online for tutorials on how to turn a photo into a stencil, most will have you use photoshop or photoshop alternatives, but all I used was Microsoft Word and Paint. I put the picture onto a Word document and recolored it to black and white. Then I saved that image and cleaned it up on paint.

What is freezer paper though?
It's paper that is coated with plastic on one side. You draw and cut out your stencil then iron it onto the fabric.
This tutorial (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=15045.0) will give you more information.

Great stencil!  Sounds like paint did a better job for you than it did for me. Last time I told it to recolor to black and white, it made the whole picture black.  Sad

Now that my daughter has graphics software, though, I'll have to look into this again.  Yours looks great!

For anyone unsure how to change a photo to black and white on Microsoft Word:

1. Open Microsoft Word on your desktop.

2. Put in your chosen picture into Microsoft Word by going to "Insert," then "Picture," then "From File," and choose the picture from its location on your computer. The picture will then appear on your document.

3. Right click on your picture and choose the selection "Format Picture." A new menu will appear.

4. On this menu, choose the tab "Picture." From here, you will see a section entitled "Image Control." Under this title there is a drop down menu labeled "Color." Pull down this menu and choose the option "Black and White."

5. Save the file


Now you can open Paint, then open this saved file so you can continue working on it.

Yay!
