While my daughter was home for Spring Break, we decided DIY Harry Potter shirts were necessary for our annual HP binge-watch. We made the stencils from freezer paper and used fabric medium mixed with acrylic paint. Very easy, and super cheap, too! Yes, I sent my kid home with completely wrinkled shirts. She needs to learn to iron stuff herself. Or not.

I clicked on that Knight Bus thumbnail so fast lol. Love the images. Freezer paper stencils are one of my favorite things to do. Did you hand cut them or use a machine? I've been doing mine by hand for ages but recently got a cricut and was thinking about trying that out, carefully.

Love them! I've done some stenciling in the past, waaaay back  Tongue and it was always so much work. But I loved the result, mhm maybe try it again some day. Thanks for the tip of mixing fabric paint and acrylic paint, good one!

Ironing, pff I only do that when REALLY needed, haha! But yes, a pretty shirt must be shown properly  Smiley

Those look great! I love using freezer paper for stenciling. And pah! ironing. It's overrated.

Samantha_McKay, I have a Silhouette cutter, and I have cut stencils on freezer paper with it. I'm sure it would be similar.

Yep, I used a Silhouette and images I found online. I ended up hand cutting most of the badger and a bit of the DH stencils because those blades don't stay sharp forever. It really makes no sense that I didn't iron the rest of the shirt while ironing on the freezer paper  Tongue

Thanks guys!
