I love doing holiday shirts. This year we decided to do 4th of July shirts. Go to Family Fun for complete instructions.
Basically, you just bend pipe cleaners over you thumb, twist, and spread the stems and fan.
Dip the cleaner in paint and press on shirt. We did red, white and blue,
then did a second layer of clear glitter paint for sparkle.
They were really simple, even Brigham and Paul's turned out nicely. Yes, I did help a little. But, the project was successful. If you plan on adding a glitter layer, give them time to dry (we just set them out overnight) before you do glitter to keep from smearing.
