I can’t believe the final movie is almost here! I confess, I do enjoy the books more, but the movies are fun. I’m getting wrapped up in all the excitement – we’ve already got our tickets to check out the end of the series at the Alamo on Sunday. To get in the mood a bit more, I made some Harry Potter t-shirts for the kiddos this weekend:
Jack is a huge fan of Draco so he had to have a Slytherin t-shirt, Caroline’s favorite character is Hermione and Georgia has a crush on Rupert Grint, so she got a Ron Weasley t-shirt – she’s just lucky that I didn’t put I love won won on hers!
I did all the designs with some a Harry Potter font and added in an image or two for impact. I then cut them out of freezer paper – my hand might need a break after all this work with the x-acto knife! Be sure to save all the letters with voids.
To reinforce the t-shirt and make sure the paint wouldn’t bleed through, I ironed on a solid piece of freezer paper to the inside of the shirt.
It’s now ready to paint! This is the shirt after the first layer of gold paint – I ended up doing three layers to get the coverage I wanted. But that ended up being a bit too thick I so had to run the x-acto knife around the design to make sure not to pull up any layers of paint as I pull off the stencil.
