Art Day: Freezer Paper Tees

Cuz Soulemama is so much awesomer than you, we decided to do one of her famousest of activities: freezer paper tees. Julie at Living Our Own Lives reminded me that we really wanted to do this craft (and offered the link to the fabulous free stencils). It really is simple, fun, and functional, despite my urge to never make our activities sound that trite. We did monsters, cuz that's the sort of folks we are.
That drying rack really is getting a lot of use. So glad I thought of it.
I need to go to the thrift store to find more blank(ish) tees because Aleks is finally out-growing all of his and I can't stand paying too much for tee shirts. It's just unreasonable. This is a much better way to do it. $22.50 for a Star Wars tee is uncalled for. I can just make a Death Star stencil and paint it onto a $.50 recycled tee.

i made a bunch of onesies for myles this way....love it! it's a great way to cover older siling stains on handed down clothing, as well...

I have seen this idea being passed around the blog world and keep wanting to try it! Would you believe our local thrift stores stopped carrying children's clothes because of that stupid law about lead content in kids' toys and clothes? Soooooooooooooo annoying. I have like a million ideas for shirts if I just had a cheap supply of them.

Ooohh... I hope the thrift stores don't stop with the boys clothes (though there never is much due to how hard boys are on clothes). Then I'll have to rely exclusively on Craigslist or my local moms groups. No good...

love your monsters:) and yes, I couldn't believe how unbelievably easy it was, especially for kids (minus the cutting part).
