DIY Mickey Mouse Spray Silhouette T-Shirt #DisneySide



I was sent plain white t-shirts for our Disney Side Party for the kids to decorate. They sent fabric markers accompanied with it but I decided to do something different.

Plain White Shirt

A Spray Bottle

Food Coloring

Mickey Mouse Silhouette



Cardboard or Newspaper


First things first get a clean empty spray bottle, fill the bottle about 1/2 way full adding about 10 drops of food coloring to the water. Then lay the t-shirt on a flat surface (we did this in the grass) in between the t-shirt I placed a piece of cardboard so that they coloring would not bleed onto the backside of the shirt. The Mickey Mouse silhouette I printed off and cut out and then placed in the center of the t-shirt.  I highly recommend using cardstock to print the Mickey Mouse on if you are using it to make more than one shirt. The first shirt we did turned out great but using the same Mickey Mouse on the 2nd t-shirt was so saturated that Mickey Mouse didn’t come out so great. The the kids sprayed the front side of their shirts, spraying over the Mickey Mouse and surrounding areas.

Now kids have their own personalized Mickey Mouse shirts, they also accented their shirts with the Fabric Markers. The picture below is my 6-year-old son’s finished t-shirt.

The kids loved this. If you search on-line you could find different Disney characters and make different Disney t-shirts!

  73. What a great idea! I’m sure the kids will love this. Especially with the different characters so everyone can choose their favorite.

  74. Susan Johnson says:

    What a cute and safe idea for a silhouette shirt. I’ve seen ones done with bleach water or dyes that I wouldn’t want my nephew to get his hands on, but this would be a fun project for him (what is it with boys and squirting water?!) He would love the magic of seeing the Mickey Mouse that he “created”. Looks like the kids had a lot of fun!

  75. Karen Propes says:

    I just love this craft, perfect for Disney BDay Parties and little girl get-togethers, or just a project. Thanks for sharing,

  76. Robin Ott says:

    Super Cute! Can I wash the t shirt afterward without damaging the colors?
