Remember when I made these Star Wars Stenciled T-Shirts?
Well, I am back at it again.
Linus asked me to remake another Star Wars t-shirt for him. Piano Man put in his request for a Kylo Ren t-shirt. (Of course he did because Piano Man was none other than Kylo Ren for Halloween.)
Need to make one for yourself or your loved one?
You have come to the right place.
fabric paint (black, red, green, white, silver…the choice is your’s to make)
cardboard piece (used to insert and protect t-shirt from paint bleeding through)
(Note: For the purposes of this tutorial, I am using a mix of the Kylo Ren stencil and my own Darth Vader Chest Plate stencil. But you can apply these steps to any of your stenciled designs.)
Step 1. Print stencil designs.
You can purchase the Darth Vader and lightsaber stencils in my shop.
Step 2. Use X-ACTO knife to cut out stencil design.
Step 3. Insert piece of cardboard inside t-shirt.
Step 4. Tape stencil design where you wish.
Step 5. Start dabbing fabric paint on t-shirt design.
The Darth Vader stencil comes in two phases. In the first phase, make the border.
Let the border dry. In the second phase, align the second part of the stencil (Darth’s buttons) along the border.
Color in the buttons according to the LEGO Darth Vader Chest Plate (as shown below), or you can add a blue button instead, which is more in line with the actual Star Wars movie version.
Peel. But make sure you do it before it completely dries, or you will have the stencil (paper) stuck to your t-shirt.
Step 6. Voila! Project complete!
I ended up making another Darth Vader stencil that Prof wore on the day of the party, since he played the part of “Darth Vader Says” game with the kiddos. (Those images are coming later.)

Prof’s Darth Vader Version (much cleaner and lower, so that it sits as a chest plate):

Did you make a Darth Vader Chest Plate t-shirt? How did your design turn out?
