Disney Craft: A Mickey Flag T-Shirt Just in Time for the 4th of July

by Crafting in the Rain on July 2, 2013 4

Hey Disney fans, it's almost the 4th of July! Whether you're headed to one of the parks for the holiday, or just spending the day at a parade and family BBQ, you and/or your kids will look adorably festive in this Mickey Flag Shirt.

And it's so easy! I'll give you all the directions here, and then at the end of the post there's a link where you can download a svg file for cutting the stencil with an electronic die cutter, or even just print it out and cut it by hand.

OK, the rundown. You will need:

  • A shirt (white is best, and if it's hot where you live, probably a short sleeved one :)
  • Freezer paper (found near the plastic wrap and foil at the's like wax paper, but it's only waxy on one side)
  • Fabric paint, or fabric medium mixed into regular acrylic craft paint
  • Foam brush
  • Iron and ironing board

Here's what you need to do:

Wash and dry the shirt like normal. Prepare the stencil by cutting out the freezer paper. When I am working with freezer paper, I put the non-shiny side down on my sticky mat to run it through my machine. The shiny side doesn't stick as well. So this means I always cut a mirror image of the stencil I want.

Flip the stencil so the shiny side goes down on the shirt. Run a medium-hot iron over the freezer paper and the waxy side will stick to the shirt!

Slide a piece of scrap paper into the shirt in case paint seeps through -- you don't want spots on the back of your shirt! Paint the stripes red and the Mickey blue. Peel up the stencil and let the shirt air dry. Then set the paint according to the instructions on the bottle. Some bottles will say to run it through the dryer, for example.

Ta-da! All done! So go make up one, or a dozen (you'll need to cut a new freezer paper stencil for each shirt ... they're one-time-use) and have a fantastic 4th of July!

*Stencil measures about 4x6 inches but could be resized after you download :)

This is great.. I would love to try it and maybe add some rhinestones for my little girl since she loves her bling!
