We made some fireworks shirts during FHE a few weeks ago.
Of course, they were to wear on the 4th of July.
I bought the shirts at Joann when they were on sale, 2 for $5.
I let everyone choose if they wanted red, white, or blue.
Except Daddy, since he didn't come with us.  And the baby, since
I just used one of his old onesies.
We cut up some painters tape and placed it where we wanted
the fireworks to be.
Then put some cardboard between the front and back of the shirt so the
paint didn't run through.
 Then we started painting.
We used acrylic paint and round stencil brushes.
Just dab around where you want it.
 We let them dry and then I sealed the paint in
by ironing the shirts...make sure to use a cloth between the shirt and the iron - you don't
want to get paint all over your iron.

 The results:
