We love that kids can paint or color this tie template on their own! We painted the template using two different techniques, but you can also color with pencils, markers or crayons too. You could also keep it plain and just print the tie on colored paper.

Steps to Make a Tie Template Shirt Card

1. First print off your tie template on white cardstock (you can get the details to download the template at the bottom of this post).

2. Now have kids decorate the ties!

We did two painting techniques: 

1. Place some masking tape diagonally along the ties and then paint in between to make an easy striped tie.

2. Use some paint sponges and make a polka dot tie.

3. Now to make your shirt. Using an 8.5×11 cardstock cut two slits at the top of the paper about 1.5 inches down.  Glue your tie to the center where the slits are.

4. Then fold your two cut pieces towards the tie and glue down. You can then glue your buttons on top.

Tip: We like this brand of glue for gluing on buttons since it’s much stronger than regular glue.

5. Now write your message under the tie! To make sure you don’t go over the place where the tie rests, use a pencil to make a fine outline around the tie. Then write your message inside the outline and erase the pencil markings when you’re done.
