How to make this easy owl shirt

Fold the freezer paper vertically. Draw half an owl on the stencil. You can use a picture from the internet if you want or you can draw one your self. Cut out the owl. Iron the freezer paper on the shirt. It’s really easy to center the owl because of the folds in the paper.Β Now you need to brush the paint on your stencil. When the paint is dry remove the freezer paper and your shirt is ready to wear!

    I’ve been seeing a lot of projects with “freezer paper” and I don’t know what that is, or where to find it? It looks like wax paper to me, LOL! Does the paint just soak through the freezer paper? I’d love to see a picture of the finished project, you’ve got some really cute ideas here!

      Freezer paper is something you can buy at the roll in supermarkets in America. Here in the Netherlands it’s a lot harder to come by. You can buy it here in craft stores, especially those who sell quilting supplies.
