4th of July fireworks shirt

4th of July is one holiday that I actually like to make (or buy) shirts for. I like to be able to have them all in red, white and blue when we go to the parade and do fireworks.
Well with the craziness of this summer, I was debating if I really wanted to make my kids some 4th of July shirts, because the last thing I need right now is more stress or something else to do.  But then someone on my facebook page shared this link with me and I had to make them!  They are so much fun and super easy to make!

I used a white shirt, paint, glitter and pipe cleaners to make the fireworks.
I took 4 pipe cleaners and twisted them together.  Then I opened up the ends to make this shape.

I put some glitter in the paint and then dipped the pipe cleaner into the paint.  Then I painted the shirt.  I did moved the pipe cleaners a circle was I stamped the shirt.  Make sure you put something in the middle of the shirt so it doesn’t go through.

I did the same thing for the blue color.  I made another “stamp” out of pipe cleaners for the blue paint.fireworks shirt (10)
And now for the words, I used my heat transfer vinyl and CAMEO to make the flags and the saying.

I ironed on the heat transfer.
