Elf Shirts

My daughter and family just love the movie ELF, and have watched it so many times.  They wanted to have t-shirts with the sayings from the movie on them.  Crafty Mom to the rescue!  With the help of my Cameo, and a few trial runs, I was able to make these shirts for them to wear to holiday parties and family gatherings.  I am only showing you three, as the fourth one is drying. When it is dry, I may added it to this post. 
I picked up bottles of fabric paint at HL and didn't notice that the green had sparkles in it, but that worked out fine anyway.  I cut out the stencils on freezer paper and ironed them on the shirts, then applied paint. 
I may go into the t-shirt making business....NOT!
As always thanks for stopping by, I got my ideas from Pinterest. Love it!
P.S.  I am not entering these in any challenge.  Just so you know.


  1. WOW! You make them sound so easy to do....BUT they do not look that easy! You are one Good MaMa!!! They came out perfectly, Barbara!

    I love that movie, especially the part about the major food groups; We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.

    Merry Merry!

  2. How fun for them. I really like the colors on the black and the different fonts you used. Di no mite idea.

  3. Oh my gosh!!!!! I would NEVER attempt this! I couldn't figure out how you did it, thought maybe you got iron-on vinyl or something. So COOL that you painted the words on! They are gonna LOVE them!!!! Such a good use of your Cameo - thanks for the inspiration!!!! WELL DONE!

  4. I never would have guessed that you made these! They are fantastic! My son and his wife loved this movie so much that they named their daughter, Jovie, after a character in the movie.

  5. What fun shirts you created, They are wonderful! Great messages too.

  6. You did a GREAT job on these! AWESOME!!!
