The holidays have their own specific brand of magic to them, and a lot of that magic is rooted in our traditions. There's something about ritual that causes us to feel nostalgic, happy and safe. It's comforting to share in well-known activities. Christmas means different things to different people, but even the biggest Scrooge probably has a happy tale or two to tell about this special day: the decorations, the festive lights and cheerful songs. If you enjoy sketching, drawing or crafting, there are infinite amounts of projects out there that will help get you into the spirit. We'd like to suggest using iron on transfers to make for either yourself or your friends and family. Through this easy-to-learn process, you can make some truly unique t-shirts, hoodies, and baseball caps.
The next time you go into a store and see a cheap-looking Santa or snowman on a sweatshirt and think to yourself "I can do better than that!" the answer is that you can! Transfer paper is perfect for those who want to share their creativity as a gift as opposed to just buying something off the rack, and it gives people ways to experiment because the materials are relatively inexpensive. You'll probably make some mistakes the first time, but that's the fun of it. Watching yourself get better gives you a sense of accomplishment and will make your end product that much more special.
Do you have a favourite family photograph? Maybe one with the kids under the tree smiling from ear to ear? Or a portrait of everyone as snowflakes fall from the sky and lands on everyone's winter hats? Maybe you have a photograph of that perfect Christmas day on the beach. These memories can turn a blank t-shirt into a work of art. On the other hand, maybe you doodle your own characters, like specific elves or your own rocking version of Santa. Use that design as your inspiration for a whole range of gifts for the people you know. Simply transfer them over with just a few steps. You can do this with just about any fabric, from tote bags to polo shirts. If you have a newborn celebrating their first Christmas, maybe you could create a memorable design for a baby t-shirt.
