DIY Hipster Bunny Tee with Free Printable Iron On Bunny


Happy Tuesday, folks! Today I'm sharing a quick and cute Easter project that is SO simple that even you non-Martha Stewart gals will be joyfully jumping and clicking your heels down the aisles of your local craft store.

DIY Hipster Bunny Tee with Free Printable Iron On Bunny #easter

I always have fun sending my little guy to daycare in holiday-inspired tees for his class parties and celebrations, but I have a really hard time finding ones in stores that I like or don't seem too corny.
I haven't had time to search for an Easter t-shirt so I decided to just create one myself.
Here's how you can easily make one too!

Materials Needed:

*T-Shirt (picked mine up at Old Navy)
*Iron-On Transfer Paper ( scored mine 40% off with coupon at Michaels.
They make different paper for light and dark materials so make sure to grab the right one depending on the color of your shirt).
*Image of your choice or download my little bunny below 
*Inkjet Printer
*Scissors
*Iron
Hipster Bunny Printable

Here's what you'll do:

Following the directions on your iron on transfer paper, download and print the little hipster bunny I created and am sharing with you.
You're welcome. Remember me in the future if I ever need an extra organ or something.
I created three different colors to give you all more of a variety. Again, you're welcome.

Download and print green bunny here
Download and print yellow bunny here
Download and print blue bunny here

**Important: With most iron-ons you need to remember to flip or mirror your image when printing but with this one it doesn't really matter. Mr. Hipster looks the same when you mirror him.




After you've printed your bunny, take your scissors and cut out your image.
When working with iron ons I like to trim as close as possible to the image.


Next up, you're going to iron on your shape following your transfer paper instructions.
Read em', this is no time to be a man! Wink, wink. You don't want to ruin a shirt!
Allow the paper to cool for a few minutes before pulling off the back of the film.

















I thought it turned out SO good! Makes me want to make more!
I'm super excited about it too because it satisfies both my graphic tee and hipster animal obsessions. Yep, that's right, I've had this fixation on animals in glasses lately. And you thought your neighbor was weird.

I have a thing for animal tushes too.

Friday's Dose of Delight | 3.27.2015


Happy Friday, folks! I know, I know! Things have been kind of quiet here on the blog this week but on the home front I have been as busy as a crazy cat on a hot tin roof. I'm currently working on some artwork for the kitchen AND I'm happy to report that we have made some mad progress on the playroom built-ins and cubbies. I hope to share more on both projects soon but in the mean time you can follow along and catch sneek peaks of the room remodel over on Instagram and Facebook. There has been so much painting, and measuring, and cutting, and me sitting around bursting at the seams waiting for the fun part....decorating.
This is the crap they don't show you on HGTV!


Any who, let's get on to a few things that have caught my eye this week.....

How stinken cute are these Fry Box Bunny Treat Containers?
I'm down for anything involving fries, even if it is just the box....




My friend, Megan, over at Our Pinteresting Family is also knee-deep in a playroom makeover and I just LOVE what they did with their basement steps leading down to the room.
Proof that the power of paint can easily transform a space!




This short article from Oprah.com was an interesting read of past trends and things to come!

Before you take a peek,  according to Google, what type of DIY project do you think was one of the top popular searches in 2014??
PS. It has nothing to do with this picture.



Come and knock on my door.......

This Hare knocker from Anthro is a total necessity, don't you think?




Treat your eyes to the cutest donuts ever to grace the face of this Earth, I'm sure of it!




Have a delightful weekend everyone!
