DIY Fa La La La Llama Christmas T-shirts

Llamas have been all the rage in our Girl Scout troop for about two years now, ever since we stumbled on the ranger’s stable at a Girl Scout camp.

This year, we’re making troop t-shirts at our Christmas lockin and party. We’re planning to wear the shirts while volunteering at the church Angel Tree collection the next morning.

To make these Christmas llama t-shirts, we borrowed the concept from our DIY Hunger Games t-shirt we made for our service unit campout last winter.

DIY Llama Christmas T-shirts

You will need:

Green or red fabric spray paint (figure 3-5 shirts per bottle)

Long-sleeve t-shirt (note: My Joanns and Michaels did not carry youth long- sleeve t-shirts; and Hobby Lobby was completely out of youth sizes.)

Llama stencil (we ordered 9×9 size)

Masking tape

Cardboard

Directions:

  1. Work in ventilated area.
  2. Tape stencil to t-shirt. This holds stencil down and minimizes bleeding over outside edge. (I learned the hard way on my sample.)
  3. Insert piece of cardboard inside shirt to prevent bleeding to back.
  4. Shake fabric spray paint bottle for about 1 minute before first use.
  5. Spray paint over stenciled area.
  6. Carefully remove stencil.
  7. Allow to dry.
