DIY Thanksgiving Fun: Take the traditional elementary school project, the turkey handprint, and stick it on a t-shirt! No need to stop at t-shirts, either. Print aprons, kitchen towels, and more! It’s time to get your hands messy in fall colors :) Check out the blog below for the easy steps: http://www.maybematilda.com/2012/11/make-turkey-handprint-thanksgiving.html #DIY #Paint #Crafts
Personalized Snowmen shirts made using my Cricut machine. Designed each one using Cricut Craft Room, then cut out a freezer paper stencil for each, ironed the stencil on the shirt and using fabric paints and a sponge brush, painted them. Can't wait to get a picture of my grandkids wearing them!
