Celebrate the Boy is on again over at MADE! I love this series! Most of the ideas are for younger boys. I have young nephews, so I hope to cash in on some gift ideas for them. However, I thought I'd show you a project my BIG boy (in high school) did. Landon loves soccer. Ask him anything soccer related - stats, rules, strategy, players, coaches, teams, international, league - he knows it all.
At Christmas, he had to bring a $5 gift for a gift exchange. He really wanted to give a soccer jersey, but they are WAY over the dollar limit. So he made his own using a $3 yellow t-shirt from Hobby Lobby, red and black sharpie markers, freezer paper, and his computer skills.
He found all the graphics of his favorite team (Dortmund) on Google then resized and printed them on freezer paper. He used an exacto knife to hand cut stencils of all the graphics, ironed them on, and went over the stencils in sharpie marker. A $5 dollar soccer jersey! He liked it so much, he made himself one the next week and is now on his third one!
And yes, Owomoyela is a real name of a soccer player!
