Making this one-of-a-kind tee involves some waiting time, so it's a perfect craft for sleepovers or winter break.

What you'll need

  • Permanent marker
  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • White cotton shirt
  • Tacky glue
  • Sponge brush (or a new kitchen sponge)
  • Fabric paint

How to make it

  1. Use a permanent marker to draw a thick-lined snowflake template on the paper, or download ours here.

  2. Let-It-Snow T-shirt - Step 2

    Place the template over the cardboard and slip both inside the shirt, centering them behind the upper front of the garment. You should be able to see the template through the shirt.

  3. Using a thin line of tacky glue (about 1/4-inch wide), trace the snowflake design onto the shirt. Let it dry for 10 minutes, then fill in any gaps with additional glue. Let the glue dry completely, until it is transparent (approximately 3 hours).

  4. Dip the sponge brush in the paint and dab around the snowflake, completely covering the surrounding area. Use less paint toward the outer edge of the design. Let the paint dry overnight.

  5. Soak the tee in warm water for about 10 minutes or until the glue softens. Peel off the glue and let the shirt dry, then follow the package instructions to set the fabric paint.
