DIY Mickey Mouse Silhouette Autograph T-Shirt

We are no strangers to the magic and lure of Walt Disney World.

There is something about Mickey shaped food, silly ears, and bright friendly characters that just transports you to a new world.  Part of the fun of the park is getting pictures and autographs with the characters so I thought it would be fun to make DIY Mickey Mouse Autograph shirts for our next trip. I had to share it with you in case you liked the idea too and wanted to make your own. Affiliate links have been used in this post.

Supplies Needed:

1 t-shirt

Black fabric paint

Contact paper

Sharpie Marker

Directions:

1. Find a Mickey head or full body silhouette you like by searching “Mickey Silhouette” on Swagbucks and print it out.

{SIDENOTE: I used Swagbucks to earn points and redeemed them for Walmart gift cards, that I then used to purchase Disney Gift Cards to pay for tickets, which made them FREE!!}

2. Trace silhouette onto clear contact paper with your sharpie.

3. Cut silhouette out of contact paper, leaving a large square around it to protect the shirt.
