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