Show Your Disney Side With This Disney Mickey Mouse American Flag T-Shirt DIY Craft Project
Looking for the perfect way to show your Disney Side on a patriotic holiday? Look no further. Here is an easy way to show your Disney Side with this Disney Mickey Mouse American Flag T-Shirt DIY Craft Project.
Items needed to complete this project: Coat Hanger for each T-shirt Wax Paper 1 Piece of Cardboard Plain Grey T-Shirt for each family member. (We purchased ours from our local craft store) 1 Large Wooden Circle for template (Purchase at local craft store) 2 Small Wooden Circles for template (Purchase at local craft store) Masking Tape Poster Board Star Stencil/Stamp Foam Paint Brush or Stamp Brush Fabric Paint or Regular Craft Paint (Red and Blue) Iron
STEP 1: Using the 3 wooden circles trace a Mickey Mouse shape onto poster board. Cut out shape and then using masking tape, tape across creating the stripes of the flag.
STEP 4: Eye the center of your shirt and place template. Using your foam paint brush, paint red paint onto t-shirt in all sections, except left Mickey ear. (We used regular craft paint, however you can also use fabric paint.)
STEP 5: Using the star stamp, fill in the left ear by stamping stars onto the t shirt.
STEP 6: Once finished painting, your stencil will look like this on the t-shirt. Slowly remove stencil not to smear wet paint.
STEP 7: Slowly remove the cardboard from the center of the shirt. Hang t-shirt to dry with wax paper still on the hanger with the t-shirt. The wax paper will ensure paint does not bleed through the shirt to the back side of the t-shirt.
STEP 8: Since we used regular craft paint for our project, we suggest you place a dry towel over the painted section of the t-shirt and iron using high heat for 30 seconds. If you use fabric paint, you will follow the directions provided on the fabric paint bottle.
At this point your Disney Mickey Mouse Patriotic T-Shirt is complete and ready to wear. Here is our family showing our Disney Side during our Fourth of July celebration at Fort Myers Beach, Florida.
