Stamped Stripey Star T-shirts


As I was browsing Pinterest the other day, I came across this awesome activity and knew my kids would love to do this for the 4th of July.  I already had most of the supplies needed to do this project:
  • corrugated cardboard - cut into star shapes (I just traced around some cookie cutters)
  • red and blue acrylic paint mixed 2:1 with textile medium (or use some fabric paint and skip the mixing step)
  • a white t-shirt
  • newspaper to place inside of the shirt while painting so the paint doesn't bleed through
Before I cut out the cardboard shaped, I peeled apart the top layer of my cardboard so the ribbed texture was revealed and ready for stamping. I also glued some old bottle caps to the back of the stars to act as a handle for easier and less messy stamping.  You could also just cut another square of cardboard and glue that on the back as a handle.





I set out the t-shirts and paint, and my 3 girls got to work, stamping away.  My girls are ages 9, 6, and 4 now and they were each able to do this project with ease.

This one was created by my 6-year-old

This is the creation of my 4-year-old

This is the work of my 9-year-old
We are so set for the 4th now!  I just need to take these shirts to the iron and heat-set them after they have dried for at least 24 hours.
