Kids Art T-Shirts with Sand Paper and Crayons

We made these darling shirts for the kids at pre school today that I just couldn't wait to share it.  They are so stinking cute!  The idea came from Pinterest of course and it was so easy to do I will be making them in the future.  My friend Natalie is the clever one who came up with this hand print tree design.

All you need is sand paper, crayons, and an iron.  We all sat around and traced the kiddos hands on the  rough side of the sandpaper, one for each shirt.  We let them color it until they couldn't stand sitting any longer.  Natalie colored strips of brown for the trunks of the tree.

Then, we cut out the hand prints.  Place a piece of paper towel inside the shirt to prevent any transfer to the backside.  Put the design on the shirt, put a piece of fabric or paper towel on top and iron it on.  You will have to leave the iron on for a little bit so the crayon design will stick really well.   

After the shirts are made you want to heat set the design by tossing them in the dryer for about 20 minutes so it doesn't wash off when the shirts are washed.  They came out so stinkin cute and even more cute on the little ones!


  1. Adorable! I saw this on Pinterest too but felt skeptical that it would work. So glad you tried it out... so now I know how cute it can be!

  2. Did you/the children color on the sandy side of the sandpaper? These are adorable!

  3. Fabulous idea, Patty!!! Did you use fabric crayons or just ordinary ones?
