Every 4th of July we like to make shirts. It’s just fun to wear them to the parade. The past couple years I have let my kids make their own shirts. Which usually means letting them paint and making a huge mess but they love the outcome of it all. I love that we made 5 shirts and they all look different and they all have their own personality!
This is how we made them:
I just used Frog Tape for the stripes, foam stickers for the stars and then fabric paint.
I made a square and then put the stars onto the shirt and then painted it blue. I let my kids do most of the painting.
Then I used the tape for the stripes. I wanted my little girl’s shirt to be a little different, so we went with chevron stripes. Notice the blue everywhere, yup I let her paint. Sometimes I struggle to just let them take control… but they still turned out cute :).
We painted the red.
Here are my older boys working, I just let them do the whole thing.
We then pulled off the tape (this is my favorite part of the whole process!)
And that’s it! Aren’t they so much fun?? I love how they turned out and I can’t wait to wear them on the 4th of July!
Here is how they look on, don’t they look great?? I love how they turned out!!
