Monday Made It: July 6

It's Monday which means it is time to link up with 

I only have one thing to add this past week and, again, it was non-school related.
I really am going to try to get back into school mode this week since next week I go back for 4 days of PD.
I really don't want to think about the fact that I go back to school in less than a month.
However, I have enjoyed my summer with my kiddos!
This Monday Made It has become a favorite of my kids, so without further delay...

Last year, we made Star-Spangled Spray Painted shirts for the 4th of July.
Since then, my 13 year old daughter has spray painted almost everything in sight!
This year, with the World Cup (which my 13 year old girl has faithfully watched) being around the 4th of July, we were FOR SURE spray painting!

Supplies We Used:
duct tape
Cricut machine
white shirts, boxers, socks, etc.
spray paint

We used my Cricut to cut out letters and stars the kids wanted for their shirts.
We used duct tape for the stripes they wanted.
Both were easy to place on the shirts where they wanted them.

Once everything was in place on the shirt, we placed poster board between the shirts.
Then we took the shirts outside and spray painted the shirts how they wanted them to look.

The shirts don't take too long to dry.
Once they were dry, we put them straight into the washing machine on cold
and then dried them.
The paint has never come off and the shirts aren't rough either
(or my kiddos would not wear them).

Here are the finished shirts:

We love us some Alex Morgan!

The 13 year old has spray painted American flag boxers, another full flag shirt and socks!
Super easy.
Super patriotic!

Hope your Monday is full of crafting opportunities!

  5. I didn't know that you could spray paint shirts and it would stay on there through washing! Those are all super cute and creative!
