Project Instructions

Step 1
Cut a 3" strip from a T-shirt sleeve. Keep the tube shape.

Step 2
Stretch the T-shirt sleeve before painting.

Step 3
Follow directions to mix fabric medium with acrylic paint.

Step 4
Lay a stencil over the tube (working one side at a time) then pounce on the paint.

Step 5
Let dry and repeat on the opposite side.

Step 6
Fold edges into the middle and tape down with Aleene’s® Peel & Stick Tape™.

A large or extra large T-shirt works best for headband size. You can also use fabric paint or mix any acrylic paint with fabric medium.
