Title: Cullen Crest (Twilight) Stenciled Tee
Post by: ofenjen on June 21, 2008 02:12:03 PM
So, I saw the Cullen crest in this article about the Twilight movie (http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2008/06/17/first-family-of-twilight-unveils-the-cullen-crest-to-mtv/) and my first thought was that it would make a fantastic stencil.

And so it did!

I used red Lumiere paint on a white baby doll t-shirt.  I think it would look amazing on a red t-shirt with black paint, but as I didn't have a red shirt, and was in the stenciling mood, I used what I had.

The paint is still a bit wet in the photo, which you can see from the few little splotches.  I used freezer paper for my stencil, which is my favorite method.  It worked beautifully, but some of the pieces were so fine that it was trashed after I peeled it off.

The stencil is here (http://www.sewhooked.org/crafts/img/ref/stencil_cullencrest.jpg) for anyone that might like it.  I had to take some artistic license with it, but I'm still really happy with the way it turned out.  I hope you like it!

Don't know anything about the movie, but Cullen is my boyfriend's first name!  Very nice stencil.

Thanks!  That's cool pretty cool.  :D  Cullen is the last name of some of the main characters from the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.  There's going to be a movie in the fall and from a crafty point of view, movie props definitely add to the possibilities!

<3333 Edward holds my heart.
Ahhh!  :)

This is awesome on so many levels! I really like the combination of red and white. FOr some reason the crest always reminds me of Gryffindor. Weird right? I think I'm going to use the stencil and make a "Team Cullen" shirt to wear to the book signing thingy.

I just finished the first book no more than 10 minutes ago.  As I mercilessly call the library to see if they have the next books, I was like "I have got to see what craftster has."

Way to deliver!

Your shirt was awesome, too.  I was already thinking crest stencil, and your post nudged me to just get it done!  Thanks. :)

So, thanks for putting the stencil up!  :D I had plans to make a jacket for my friend's birthday present for the longest time (coughcoughsixmonthsagohackwheeze) and I just finished last night! And I wanted to share since it was your idea that inspired me! :)

The front came out waaay messier than I had wanted it to, but this is my first time stenciling, so, let's chalk all the weird white spots up to beginner's errors  ;) I put a little sparkly apple up there too :]


Then on the back, a little glittery red apple in the corner (a la book 1/the front of the jacket)! :) And I outlined the stencil a little with white glitter as well.


Then I put little stars on the hood with silver glitter paint...what can I say, my friend is really into shiny things?


But mostly, just wanted to say thanks for sharing your stencil! :D
