DIY Photo Silhouette T-Shirts

OK, hands up if you want to print your own T-shirts but can’t be bothered with all the equipment that silkscreening requires.

Jeebus, that’s a lot of hands. Well, we’ve found a way to mimic screenprinting that takes half the time and only requires some freezer paper and fabric paint.

It’s so easy you may find yourself printing photos on everything:

  • Score some button-downs at the thrift store and print pictures of office supplies on them.
  • Print silhouettes of your childhood pets on a canvas bag and carry your own menagerie with you.
  • Take profile shots of your BFFs and print each silhouette portrait on a different shirt. Make your friends arm-wrestle for the privilege of being your shirt-of-the-day.

Let the printing obsession commence!
