et’s make a DIY Christmas shirt for under five bucks!You’ll need the materials you see in the photo along with fabric glue.
Items needed is as follows
*Sure bond fabric glue
*A T-shirt at your choice found mine at the dollar tree
*Ribbon of your choice
*Snowman head ornament cloth dollar tree
*Elf leg ornament dollar tree
* embellishments of your choice optional
First, Laid out the snowman head and legs on the T-shirt to see where I’d like to position it.
Next I cut off the top red portion of the elf legs. Since the back ground that was red already, I wanted to break up some color.
I took some of my ribbon and cut it to size. I wanted it to almost appear as if it is a cuff at the top of the boot.
I got my ribbon choices out. I simply Mixed and matched patterns.
I cut some with straight edges and some with angled edges. You can see this demonstrated above
I continued to layer the ribbon. Then tied it together with another colored ribbon. Make sure to double knot the back, so that it does not come undone.
I then placed a thick envelope in between the layers of the T-shirt.Tacking it on the inside of the shirt. This is to ensure that the glue would not stick all the way through the fabric.Otherwise it will glue the front side to the backside. We don’t want that!
Next, I added glue to the back portion of the ornament.Making sure to get the edges.
Then I Held it in place to make sure that it would bond. Make sure to use slight pressure.
Next I attached the bow underneath the head. I did this at an angle. You could add it straight if your prefer!
Then, add the fur to the top of the boot to form the cuff.
I also took some of my pom-pom ribbon and cut off two of the pom-poms. I added these to the bottom of the shoe. As you see in the picture.
To finish the snowman, I also decided to remove the top embellishments on the hat.
and instead make a bow that I would like
All that was left to do was to add the snowflake buttons!
