Sandpaper isn’t normally used for art projects, but what this mom did with her kids shows just how fabulous the scratchy paper can be!

When you thought there couldn’t be any good crafting ideas left that you didn’t already know about, this one came along.

Cindy from the blog, Alpha Mom, shared an excellent idea for a DIY t-shirt screen printing project that will leave you both somewhat surprised and thoroughly impressed!

The secret to the whole thing? Sandpaper.

“This is a super simple sandpaper printing technique that will keep your kids busy and make one cute shirt!” Cindy wrote on her blog post about the project.

If you’re still confused as to how sandpaper can be used to transfer images onto fabric, don’t worry. It does sound really weird, but Cindy showed everyone exactly how it’s done.

She started by gathering all of the materials: crayons, a t-shirt, fine sandpaper, and an iron.


Cindy began coloring a design onto the rough side of the fine sandpaper, making sure to create a super thick layer of the waxy art supply.



Cindy noted that anyone doing the craft should remember any image you create will be reversed once it’s on the t-shirt, so keep that in mind when you decide what to draw!
