DIY Reindeer Shirt

Like I promised in my DIY Holiday Glitter Canvas post, today I am sharing what I created with the oh-so-amazing Tulip Shimmer Sheets! I can't say enough about them - they really are so much fun to use!!


Supplies:
Long sleeve shirt {clearance at WalMart!}
Tulip Shimmer Sheets


I'm a glitter addict. The Tulip Shimmer Sheets are now one of my favorite craft items because the sheets are covered in glitter. Not just shimmery - but glittery! Love!! This specific pack of shimmer sheets came with two different silvers, a red, and a black sheet. I used the more colorful of the silvers, and a little piece of red.


Step 1: Prewash your fabric. While that was in the washer, I drew up a little reindeer, including a circle nose. You could also use any kind of premade stencil, silhouette image, or even use letters and numbers.

Step 2: I cut the shimmer sheets using the print as a guide. You could also cut out the image, and trace onto the shimmer sheets, then cut. A wonderful thing about the shimmer sheets is that they are compatible and easy to use with a vinyl cutter! It probably would have been faster and easier if I would have used one for this project, but I just decided to hand cut this time.


Step 3: Arrange the shimmer sheets on the shirt. When everything is just how you like it,
lay a thin cloth over top and press an iron on the shimmer sheets for about 40 seconds.


That's it! Your shirt is ready to go, and the Tulip Shimmer Sheets wash great!


The shirt is perfect for all our holiday outings and parties. We even took my daughter to see Santa in her new shirt, and he loved it! Can't wait to make even more fun things with these Tulip Shimmer Sheets. So fun!!

  3. Lindsey, this is adorable! But the model is awesome! She kind of reminds me of my oldest daughter, who was born with black hair, but it turned blond. She had blond roots and black tips on her hair. Then her oldest daughter did the exact same thing. Daughter #2 was born with black hair and it just lightened up to a dark brown. My son had white peach fuzz. He is dark headed now. LOL
