Splish Splash Blog Bash: DIY 4th of July Shirts!




 

 
Wahoo... I'm back for Day 3 of the Splish Splash Blog Bash hosted by Kelsey at Tattered and Inked!  Today's theme is a "Summer DIY Dish or Project" and as much as I love summer sweets and treats, I'm super excited to show you my DIY project,  4th of July t-shirts I designed for our boys.
 
What's your most favorite thing about summer?  
 
There are a million things I love about summer, but the 4th of July tops my list because it pretty much has everything I love about summer all packed into one day... the food, the fun, the decorations, cute desserts, and a fabulous opportunity for memory making with our 4 boys.
 
Whether I buy them or decorate them myself, my boys always have a special shirt for the 4th of July.   Last year we had just moved and I was short on time, so I bought the $5 Old Navy shirts.  
 
 
Nothing wrong with that, but this year I wanted to do something unique, so I pulled out my supplies:
t-shirts, fabric paint & paint brushes.
 

Using my Silhouette I cut out the words for the shirts.  I tried to use freezer paper because it's so inexpensive and normally works great for stencils on fabric, but I have my strongest little blade in my Silhouette right now and I can't find my other blades so I had to switch it up and use vinyl for the stencils because freezer paper is thin and kept tearing.  The vinyl worked great!
 


 Ta-da!
 
And here is the finished project...  I'll have to mentally prepare myself for an attempt at getting them all looking at the camera for a picture of them actually wearing them :)

Adorable idea!! I can't wait to see the boys wearing this cuteness! I love the idea of each shirt's saying adding up to make one phrase!!! {And hello - look how little Luke is in that picture!} xoxo PS -- are those all KID shirts, because seriously, those look too big to fit your 'little' boys. Sigh xoxo
