I, no, WE love Frozen. We love all things Frozen. We are addicted to Frozen. And Disney doesn’t have enough Frozen Merchandise. We see some t-shirts pop out here and there now. None of the original Frozen merch from November has been in the parks since before December. I would like to see some of it come back. The dresses are a HOT commodity in the parks. While Carson desperately wanted one, when we finally lucked into being in the right place at the right time, he changed his mind after he tried it on. The Elsa dress is VERY scratchy and for my Sensory sensitive (Autism Spectrum) kid, it was too much to handle.
After trying on the dress though, we did see two new Frozen t-shirts the parks are carrying. Both for girls technically. He didn’t care for them. Then at Target I happened upon two new Frozen shirts for Courtney for only $10!!!! But they didn’t have any boy shirts, so I decided to make some…
I love Oriental Trading Company, and I started perusing their site to see what they had to help me create some custom Frozen t-shirts. I was ECSTATIC to find the Tulip Glow in the Dark Spray Paint and my ideas sprang from there….
How to Make Frozen T-Shirts
- T-Shirts (white works best)
- Crayola Fabric Markers or Sharpies (I Used Both)
- *Optional – if Kids are making them, use the Crayola Fabric Crayons! ($3.00)
- PDF Templates
- Glow in Dark Fabric Spray Paint – From Oriental Trading Company
- Double Sided Tape
Print the template you want to use. Place inside of shirt. Trace your design with either the Crayola Fabric Markers or your Sharpies. (This is best done in a bright room, but if you are having trouble seeing your template through the shirt, simply take your smart phone, turn on the flashlight and place under the shirt along the area you are tracing. It is like your own mini light box.)
Embellishing Your Frozen Shirt
Make it Glow – After you have traced your design on your shirt, colored in the areas you want and are all done with the marker portion. Take your template and do a rough cut out of it. Leave about a 1/4 of inch around it as you cut. Add double sided tape to the bottom and place on top of your design.
Now take your Glow in the Dark Spray Paint and hold it about 10 inches from your shirt and spritz. I stopped when the template was covered and curling. Yes there will be large chunks of spray that land on your shirt. I personally wanted that to happen as it makes it look like snow when it is glowing. If you don’t, then hold the spray bottle further back and make sure you are in front, spraying horizontally at your shirt, not over spraying down.
Cost of these shirts:
- Hanes T-Shirts at Michaels – $2.99 – $5.99
- Crayola Fabric Markers – $5.00
- Glow in Dark Spray Paint – $6.75
