Mosaic Print T-Shirt

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Whittle the tips of carrots into squares or triangles, and you've got the perfect implements for printing T-shirt mosaics.


  • Plastic bag
  • Cardboard
  • Prewashed T-shirt
  • Carrots
  • Paring knife
  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Fabric paint
  • Plastic plates


1. Wrap the plastic bag around the cardboard and slip it inside the shirt. Then create the stamps by cutting the tip of each carrot into a square or triangle shape (a parent's job).

2. Use the paper and pencil to experiment with a few designs. It's best to stick with shapes that aren't too intricate, like a broad-leaved flower or a flag. When the pattern is chosen, re-sketch it on the shirt.

3. Pour fabric paint onto the plastic plates and dip the carrot tips into the paint. Use them to print a series of squares and triangles to fill in the sketched design.

4. To finish, heat-set the finished design and launder the shirt according to the paint manufacturer's directions.
