Step 1
Wash and dry T-shirt to remove sizing; do not use fabric softener.

Step 2
Place freezer paper over bear pattern and trace with a pencil. Cut out center of design to create stencil. Place freezer paper stencil waxy side down on top center of shirt and iron to adhere design in place temporarily.

Step 3
Insert Fashion Form™ inside shirt to prevent paint seepage to other side.

Step 4
Test Snow fabric spray paint on paper towels to get a feel for spray pump.

Step 5
Spray a light covering of paint inside bear design. Let dry then spray again for medium coverage. Let dry.

Step 6
Peel away freezer paper stencil and discard.

Step 7
Create a “snow” effect over bear and across top of shirt with fabric spray paint. Tip: Pressing spray pump only halfway down will produce a splatter effect. Create another “snow” effect on bottom left of shirt as shown. Let dry.

Step 8
Practice using Glacier White 3D Fashion Paint on a paper towel. Use Glacier White to create snowflakes around bear and at bottom left of shirt as shown. Let dry and remove Fashion Form™ from shirt.


Rosette Option:

Step 1
To create rosette, cut four equally sized pieces of ribbon (two red and two green) and fold cut edges of each piece to backside and glue in place for a cleaner look.

Step 2
Create an “X” with each colour pair and glue together at the center point. Stack the green X on top of the red X as shown and glue together.

Step 3
Create a bow from smaller ribbon, tying a small jingle bell in the center. Glue in place on center of rosette. Let dry completely.

Step 4
Safety pin rosette to neckline.

When using Tulip Fabric Spray Paint, pressing spray pump halfway will produce a splatter effect; pressing all the way creates a mist.
