But…what I do know is Disney. Like the back of my hand. I know great places to stay. I know amazing places to eat. I know why your little ones will love EPCOT even if you think they might not. I know how and where to find your favorite characters. I know how to get you the best deals. And I know how to make just one craft – Spiral Mickey Head T-Shirts
The perfect way to make matching t-shirts so you’ll look spectacular in your family photos. (And I know how you can get photos of the whole family at Disney – you included – at a discount!)
A squeeze bottle (I bought a Wilton one from the cake decorating aisle)
Spray fabric paint
Cardboard (for inside your shirt so the colors don’t bleed through to the back)
Don’t worry if your circles aren’t perfect – you can see that mine certainly are not. But if you are not happy – or your circles are not where you’d like them to be – there is an easy answer. Just wash your shirt – the flour will come right off and you can start over!
Leave shirts to dry. If it’s a sunny day, you can put them outside and they’ll dry quickly. Inside, you might need to wait as long as 24 hours.
Once the spiral is dry – you are ready to spray.
You can do one color. Or multiple. And can do something different for everyone. Or, if you are a bit OCD like my mom who doesn’t like the idea of unorganized spatter, you can use fabric paint for your spiral and paint your Mickey head.
After the paint is dry peel off the spiral of flour and water. It cracks and is sometimes easy to peel – and sometimes you have to really work it off.
When you are done, you’ll have some fabulous shirts. Pop them in the washer head to Disney and snap some fabulous group photos.
