One of the very first things I learned to DIY was stenciling a t-shirt. I discovered the joy of creating and applying my own, one of a kind stencil to create my own one of a kind t-shirt. Stenciling is a great way to give a unique and specific gift to someone. I've made tons of shirts this way and I have shared my own how-to for Stenciling a Shirt
but I have yet to share a how-to on creating your own stencil. I'm not the most adobe photoshop savvy person, but this is how I do it based on tips and techniques I have picked up over time! This same technique can be used to create a template for carving a pumpkin! Enjoy!
