Chick a Boom Painted Kids Tees

Chick a Boom...
Painted Kids Tees

Adorable painted chicks are the perfect design for these Easter t-shirts. To make perfect circles, use stencils made from shelf liner.

Light colored kids T-shirt (your choice of color)
Fabric ball and brush pens by Marvy
Dimensional fabric paint by FolkArt
4”X4” square of adhesive shelf liner
Flat paintbrush
Wax or parchment paper
Xacto knife & cutting surface
Pen or pencil


1. Pre wash and dry the t-shirt to remove any sizing. Place a piece of waxed paper in between the front and back of the t-shirt to prevent the paint from bleeding through.

2. Paint a tree using the paint pens. Just an easy free form squiggle with a branch. Use tape to mark start and stop points.

3. Cut a circle shape with your Xacto knife (any dimension) from the center of the shelf liner square. Remove the backing from the shelf liner and stick the square where you want to paint your chick. The circle is the body of the chick.  Fill in the circle by working from the outside edge going towards the center and be careful around the edges of the circle. Allow it to dry and remove the shelf liner.

4. Use the fabric paint pens to create the legs, beak and feathers. Use the dimensional paint to create an eyeball and tips of feathers. Allow the paint to dry.
