Ministry of Silly Walks Stencil

Ministry of Silly Walks Stenciled Tee

Here’s a fun stencil that I made for my son.  It’s a fairly simple stencil and a great conversation starter!

My family are huge Monty Python fans, so much so, that I ended up making a shirt for my hubby,too.

From the classic Python sketch, Ministry of Silly Walks:

Supplies:

In lieu of individual photos of the process, take a look at my how-to video for stenciling, which you may remember from this post or from The Cullen Crest post.

  1. Pre-wash t-shirt without fabric softener.
  2. Print stencil (or alternative updated version) onto freezer paper (matte side).
  3. Carefully cut out with an exact-o knife. There are loads of fiddly bits, so take your time and be careful.
  4. Set iron to medium.
  5. Place cardboard or newspaper inside t-shirt.
  6. Place stencil on t-shirt with a piece of blank paper on top (that keeps the tiny pieces in place) then carefully press with the iron.
  7. Use the foam brush to gently paint on the fabric paint.
  8. Allow a few minutes to dry, then carefully remove the stencil. For small pieces, use a straight pin to help get them started for easier removal.
  9. Finish drying according to manufacturer’s directions.

Video Tutorial: Freezer Paper Stencils

I love t-shirts. I love them in a BIG way. I love to reconstruct, redo and, most of all, stencil my t-shirts!

Some time ago, I was asked by some friends for a stenciling tutorial. What I ended up posting was a video tutorial covering how to make a basic freezer paper stencil. The shirt shown was for my partner in a Twilight swap I participated in on craftster.

I hope you enjoy the video and give stenciling a try if you haven’t already! There are more of my stencils available here. If I don’t have what you’re looking for, give making your own design a try!
