The 12 Crafts of Christmas - Day 1

November 1, 2010

simply screen T.jpgOn the first day of the 12 Crafts of Christmas, we have decorated T shirts and tote bags with the Simply Screen printing system from Plaid. This project can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. It makes a fantastic gift for kids or adults. The screens include subjects like Rock and Roll, Skulls, Eco subjects, and more. Buy a T shirt. Make a T shirt. Recycle a T shirt. The sky, and your imagination, is the limit for creating a great gift.

You will need something to print on. The instructions say that the Simply Screen paints and foils will adhere to most fabrics. The prints will have to be heat set with an iron, so for best results choose items that can take the heat. We recommend more natural fibers like cotton or cotton rich blends. You will also need the Simply Screen paint and screen of your choice for your project. We have a great video by Shannon that will show you how quickly you can create a great T shirt.

You don't have to use just one color as we did in the video. You can also use a small, but stiff, paint brush and several colors to create a more detailed design. Once you have printed your design and heat set it, you can List_Crystal Compact Two.jpgcontinue to embellish your design. The Kandi Cane heat set crystals will add some sparkle to your project and will give it a more professional finish.

On the second day of the 12 Crafts of Christmas, you can make a crowning acheivement!
