Mom to Mom: 4th of July t-shirts

(41NBC/WMGT) —  Today, on Mom to Mom we have an easy DIY 4th of July project for your kiddos.

So basically all you’re going to need for this is a plain white t-shirt that you can get it at craft store or Walmart anywhere. Then you’re going to need some fabric paint, paint brush, a cardboard box. We recommend that you use an envelope and you’ll see why find out why in just a little bit and a pencil. So first you want to take your shirt and kind of lay it out flat on the table. Then you want to take your cardboard box and slip it in between the shirt. That way, whenever the paint goes through, it will stick on the cardboard box and not on the other side. Once you have your cardboard in your shirt, you want to grab your kid or whoever shirt you’re working on. That’s where you want to put the blue paint on the hand and spread it out with the paint brush. So go ahead and mash your hand on the t-shirt. Now, once you have that good and press on there, you’re going to pull it up slowly, and if you need to fill in any, you can.

All right, now we’re going to make our stripes. This is where the envelope comes in handy. Take the envelope and use a pencil to kind of outline the stripes, and you’re going to do three up top, close to the hand. Then you’re going to do two long ones on the bottom. Then you take your red paint and you spread it out. And that’s when you can have fun with your lines, you can do it however you want. You can blotch, you can stripe up, you can do a solid line. However you want to do it. It’s your shirt. Make it look the best you can. Once you have this done, let it dry overnight. Now you have a 4th of July shirt that you and your family are going to love, because you all match — and it was fairly cheap.
