HOW TO MAKE A FUNNY FAVORITE CHILD T-SHIRT FOR MOTHER’S DAY
WHAT YOU NEED
All craft items are available at Walmart!
- A plain t-shirt (in the color of your choice. We bought a Gildan T-shirt)
- A piece of felt (We used Puffy 3D Paint)
- Fabric paint
- VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics
WHAT TO DO
Start with a plain-colored t-shirt and some fabric paint (ideally in a squeezy bottle that will be easy to write with).
Write the words ‘My favorite child today is’ across the t-shirt and leave it to dry.
Next, cut out a couple of pieces of colored felt. You’ll need one for each child, plus one for any pets!
Take your fabric paint again, write the name of each child on a piece of felt and leave it to dry.
When your fabric paint is dry, cut a piece VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics and stick the loop side (aka the softer side) onto your t-shirt.
Then stick a piece of the loop side (aka the scratchy side) on the back of each name tag.
Then all that’s left is to present this homemade Mother’s Day gift to your mom and let her stick the name of her favorite child on the t-shirt!
