Materials

Plain (or printed) tee shirt
Tulip Fashion Graffiti Fabric Paint Cannon
Tulip Fabric Spray Paint
Stencils

Tiff Graffiti 1 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor 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.
Tiff Graffiti 2 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor Next I selected a repositionable stencil. This stencil is cool because it is sticky on the back and works repeatedly on fabric.
Tiff Graffiti 3 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor 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.
Tiff Graffiti 4 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor Hold down the nozzle and spray on your lettering. I chose L-O-V-E.
Tiff Graffiti 5 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor Next I outlined the orange lettering with pink. Then, push down partially on the nozzle and you create a spattered look.
Tiff Graffiti 6 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor I like to let the base colors dry completely so that I can get crisp black graffiti.  Position the stencil on the tee.
Tiff Graffiti 7 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor I’m using the Tulip Fabric Spray Paint in Asphalt for my black graffiti.
Tiff Graffiti 8 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor Just pump to spray the paint over the stencil. For graffiti, it’s fine to let the color go outside the stencil.
Tiff Graffiti 9 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor 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.
Tiff Graffiti 10 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor Reposition and re-spray.
Tiff Graffiti 11 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor Next, I grabbed my floral stencil and just placed it over the fabric (no adhesive on the back of this stencil).
Tiff Graffiti 12 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor Move it around and spray, spray, spray with the black, orange and pink.
Tiff Graffiti 13 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor For the final design element, I added a bird.
Tiff Graffiti 14 300x168 LoveBirds Graffiti Tee by Tiffany  Windsor 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!

IAH Plastic Spoon Easter Egg by EcoHeidi Borchers 5 300x194 Plastic Spoon Easter Eggs Card by EcoHeidi Borchers 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.
IAH Plastic Spoon Easter Egg by EcoHeidi Borchers 6 300x170 Plastic Spoon Easter Eggs Card by EcoHeidi Borchers Within a few seconds the heat of the candle will soften the plastic.  Pull the handle apart from the bowl of the spoon.
IAH Plastic Spoon Easter Egg by EcoHeidi Borchers 7 300x175 Plastic Spoon Easter Eggs Card by EcoHeidi Borchers 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.

IAH Plastic Spoon Easter Egg by EcoHeidi Borchers 14 300x202 Plastic Spoon Easter Eggs Card by EcoHeidi Borchers 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.
