Stencils

Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 1 For this project, I selected fluorescent colors of Tulip Cannon Fabric Paint. The pink and orange are super cool for the base colors of this tee.
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 2 Next I selected a repositionable stencil. This stencil is cool because it is sticky on the back and works repeatedly on fabric.
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 3 Follow the package instructions and pump up your Cannon.  This is so cool because you get the effects of an aerosol spray bottle without the harm to the environment.
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 4 Hold down the nozzle and spray on your lettering. I chose L-O-V-E.
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 5 Next I outlined the orange lettering with pink. Then, push down partially on the nozzle and you create a spattered look.
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 6 I like to let the base colors dry completely so that I can get crisp black graffiti.  Position the stencil on the tee.
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 7 I’m using the Tulip Fabric Spray Paint in Asphalt for my black graffiti.
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 8 Just pump to spray the paint over the stencil. For graffiti, it’s fine to let the color go outside the stencil.
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 9 Here’s what it looks like when you pull up the stencil. If you want a darker application of the black fabric spray, just spray more color while the stencil is in place.
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 10 Reposition and re-spray.
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 11 Next, I grabbed my floral stencil and just placed it over the fabric (no adhesive on the back of this stencil).
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 12 Move it around and spray, spray, spray with the black, orange and pink.
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 13 For the final design element, I added a bird.
Graffiti T-Shirt by Tiffany Windsor - 14 Here is my graffiti design! Repeat for the back and sleeves.
Turn your tee into a designer piece by cutting off the crew neck. Also cut the bottom edge of the sleeves and bottom hem. When you wash your tee, the edges will curl!

Materials: 

Blank card 5″ x 7″
Shredded paper (I used paper from my paper shredder)
Tulip Fabric Spray Paint – green
Plastic spoons – assorted colors
Tulip Dimensional Paints – assorted colors
Glue (I used Aleene’s Tacky Glue)
Alphabet stencil (1″ tall letters)
Pencil
Waxed paper
Small candle and matches

 
Place the shredded paper onto waxed paper and spritz with the spray paint.
Turn over and spritz again. Spread out and let dry.
Glue the dried painted shredded paper along the bottom edge of the card. Let glue dry.
In a well-ventilated area, carefully hold the plastic spoon over the candle flame (but not in the flame). The flame should be under the area where the handle meets the bowl of the spoon.
Within a few seconds the heat of the candle will soften the plastic.  Pull the handle apart from the bowl of the spoon.
If you need to trim the edges of the bowl or the stem, return to the heat of the flame for a few seconds to soften plastic. Then cut or trim while the plastic is still soft.  Be careful! If you leave the plastic in the heat too long the plastic will be hot.
Here are the spoons all cut and trimmed.
Shake the dimensional paint down to the tip before using and always test before applying to project. Carefully squeeze the paint into different patterns and shapes onto the outside of the spoon bowl. Let paint dry completely.
Lightly trace the letters with pencil onto the card, using the alphabet stencil.
Cover the pencil tracing with the dimensional paint.
IAH Plastic Spoon Easter Egg by EcoHeidi Borchers - Hero Glue the dried Easter eggs onto the card into the shredded paper.
Here’s a cute example of another plastic spoon Easter egg project where the spoon handles are painted brown and assembled into a basket.
Painting tips:Here’s an alternate painting technique for applying the shapes for the eggs.

On waxed paper, squeeze paint into different shapes or dots. After the paint dries, you can peel the painted shapes off the waxed paper, then glue shapes onto the plastic spoon bowl.

You can also put a rhinestone in the middle of each dot.Flower shapes – Center dot with 5 to 6 dots around center dot.Hearts – Squeeze dot and pull into a line, then pull up. Repeat with other side of heart.
