Super Simple Screenprinting

Written by Sarah. Posted in DIY

Jon was cruising LifeHacker this weekend. It’s such a fantastic, tech-savy DIY blog. It’s like crafting for nerdy boys. I’m a fan. I made him watch this instructional video. If I ever have a kid, I think she’ll be bubbly, clever, and creative like Mini-Maker Sylvia. She reminds me of the title character of B’s film Dot, which is now making the festival rounds.

Featured on Make’s online magazine, Sylvia shares how to screen print using budget-friendly tools. It’s so easy a kid can do it.

I haven’t tried this DIY yet but it looks like so much fun. As a big stencil-er in high school, I’ve always aspired to screen printing. Once things die down with work and redecorating (update about that coming soon), I will attempt this project. Until then, you’ll just have to enjoy the adorable video.

I’d love to see some other home-grown screen prints. Anybody have one?
