Elephant T-Shirt for the Circus

So excited! My Daddy and Step-Mom bought us tickets to the circus for my birthday! Tonight is the night! Can't wait for Little Mister to enjoy his first Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Bash! He absolutely loves elephants so, we made a cool t-shirt to wear tonight!

Materials- Pre-washed white t-shirt, grey, black and white fabric paint, brushes

1. Place cardboard inside the shirt.
2. We painted Little Mister's hand grey and placed it on the shirt (fingers down for the legs).
3. Repaint the hand and repeat.
4. Paint the thumb black and press on each elephant for an ear. (We used my thumb)
5. Use the paint brush to make white dots for eyes and thin black wrinkle lines on the trunk (thumb).
6. Let dry flat for at least 4 hours.
