That's what my 3 year old runs around our house saying...over, and over and over. He loves the Avengers. He loves superheroes. He always notices the shirts in all the stores with these characters on them but lets face it, I'm not made of money, he has plenty of other shirts, and they are always upwards of $15 each.
And what does a DIY Mama do when she doesn't want to spend a small fortune on character shirts but really wants to give her little one what they want?
She makes it herself of course.
So I took a little trip to Hobby Lobby picked out a green shirt, they are less than $3 each after their "Always 30% off" discount.
I got online and googled, "Hulk freezer paper stencil", and somehow found an image of half a face that was supposed to be the Hulk. I then went to Dafont.com and found a font that was more comic book-ish because I knew I didn't just want the face on there, there needed to be some kind of wording so anyone and everyone would know who it was supposed to be.
Of course the wording immediately came to me, it had to be, Hulk Smash!
Someone told me it's more of a Lego version of the Hulk and it probably is, but Grant knew exactly who it was as soon as he saw it and he loved it. What did he say after he talked about how much he wanted to wear it, "right now!"?
Mommy where's my Iron Man shirt?
Another trip to Hobby Lobby later for a red shirt and a trip to Joann's for a small bottle of gold metallic fabric paint (because Hobby Lobby didn't have any) and he now has an Iron Man shirt as well.
To find the above image I simply googled, "Iron Man freezer paper stencil". I now have 2 other shirts in the works for a Spiderman and one with the Avengers emblem on it.
There are dozens of freezer paper stencil tutorials out there which is why I didn't make one for this project. I don't think I do anything different from anyone else. Here is one I looked at before I did my first project last year. If you've never done freezer paper stencils, go to the store and buy some freezer paper right this second!
You will quickly become addicted and coming up with your own shirt designs for you or your little ones.
