Know what you’re wearing for your 4th of July celebration tomorrow?
Thanks to my friend Tori over at the sTori book, I know what my minis are wearing!
Tori posted this DIY flag shirt tutorial on her blog the other day and I loved it from the start; I knew my craft loving minis would want to do this project.
Here’s what you’ll need (all purchased from hobby lobby)…
Make sure you have a big flat workspace.
Start by painting your child’s entire palm blue. Make sure you apply a generous amount!
Then have your child make a hand print on the upper left corner of the shirt for the start of your flag.
* Tip * help them press their fingers and palm fully down to ensure you get a great full hand print
Using your paintbrushes and white paint, start painting your stripes.
Finally, dot in some white “stars” on your blue handprint.
And there you have it, a fun DIY project!
My minis are very proud of their work and excited that they get to wear a creation of their own! Mini man even said he wants to write “Rayne 4th of July 2013” on the back of his and keep it forever!
We might even paint a few fireworks on it!
