Wash and dry T-shirt to remove sizing; do not use fabric softener.
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.
Insert Fashion Form™ inside shirt to prevent paint seepage to other side.
Test Snow fabric spray paint on paper towels to get a feel for spray pump.
Spray a light covering of paint inside bear design. Let dry then spray again for medium coverage. Let dry.
Peel away freezer paper stencil and discard.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Create a bow from smaller ribbon, tying a small jingle bell in the center. Glue in place on center of rosette. Let dry completely.
Safety pin rosette to neckline.
