Bullriding Cowboy T-Shirt Using a Photo and Freezer paper


                   HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
I couldn't decide what to get my hubby for Valentine's...?  He likes the PBR and bullriding.  I looked around and found some bullriding long sleeve T's and hoodies for $40 or $50 bucks online.  So I thought to myself...I can make that.

Hello freezer paper where have you been all my life. 

I know I am WAY WAY behind all the other crafters out there but I kept seeing and hearing about this "shtuff" call freezer paper.
I dug out one of my husbands pics of his old bullriding days and made a copy to the size that i wanted.



Then with an exacto knife I cut around his body right on the photo copy with the freezer paper underneath.




I ironed into place and was ready to paint.  I used black acrylic paint


It was a little difficult to tell but I just painted it on as evenly as possible.  Less paint gives a more worn look, and more paint almost gives a little shine to it.

Let it sit and dry for 30 minutes and pull away freezer paper and you are done!  I just saved $50 on the hoodie I would have bought and this is more personal since I used his pic.
