Just about every year Prof and I match our t-shirts with the kids’ costumes. Since we’re not the type of parents to get all decked out for Halloween, wearing matching themed t-shirts makes us one Hallow-themed family.
Let’s see. Here’s a running list of our Halloween costume themes:
I started my t-shirt project with a Darth Vader stenciled t-shirt for Prof and a Yoda stenciled t-shirt for me. Once the boys saw the finished product, they asked for some.
Piano Man asked for a lightsaber t-shirt. Lightsaber? Okay, but which one? After some research, I’ve got one template that expands over the entire t-shirt. So be prepared to use the force, the light or dark side….
Puff paint (or fabric paint)
Paint brush or sponge brush
Cardboard (not shown)
Stencil template (see below to get your template)
Step 1. Download and print template.
Step 2. Use an X-ACTO knife to carve out stencil.
Note: I did make a few adjustments to ensure proper alignment, so make sure the stencil fits your t-shirt dimensions.
Step 3. Insert cardboard or thick magazine inside t-shirt.
Tape stencil securely to t-shirt.
Step 4. Use a sponge brush or paint brush to dab fabric paint onto t-shirt.
Make sure that you firmly press the stencil template onto your t-shirt. Otherwise, it could bleed under your stencil.
Step 5. Pull stencil off t-shirt. Let it dry.
Step 6. Voila! Project complete!
Making other Star Wars-theme stenciled t-shirts didn’t end with the lightsaber. We’ve got several to cover days worth of Star War outfits leading up to Halloween.
Other Star Wars Stenciled T-Shirt Templates
If you’re looking for other stencils, I googled Star Wars pumpkin stencils. I found several that would make a perfect stencil for a t-shirt design. Who says you can’t use pumpkin stencils for other purposes?
(I printed at 200%.)
Star Wars t-shirts for the whole family! Sounds like an Old Navy commercial, doesn’t it?
