It all starts with a one dollar wooden frame! Ashley from Lil Blue Boo made a bunch of pint-sized silkscreens so she could add tags to the garments she makes and sells. She was nice enough to share the entire process of building the screens, and I was completely fascinated! I thought you might be too. Although all the components for this project can’t be found at the dollar store, it all starts with the dollar frame! Use these little screens for making custom t-shirts, greeting cards, fabric, and more. [how to make mini silkscreens]
- Flat wooden frame, $1
- Screen printing fabric sheets, $27
- Binder clips, on hand or $1
- Waterproof wood glue
Total: $28 and up
Obviously if you are making one, you should be making like 30 of them. They cost Ashley about $2 each, which is a huge bargain if you want to make mass-produceable designs.
