Wearing red, white and blue for 4th of July is pretty much a must. The kids and I wanted to make our own shirts this year, so we came up with this fun DIY firework shirt that even my 2 year old helped with (after he woke up early from his nap of course)

This DIY fireworks shirt is pretty easy to make and a fun kid craft for the summer. We had all but the white shirts already at our house.

Supplies:

  • White shirt
  • Blue and Red sharpie
  • Cardboard
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Eye dropper

Place a piece of cardboard inside your shirt to create a barrier between the front and back layer.

Using your blue and red sharpie, create dot and line patterns. We did ours one pattern at a time.

Once you have a design you like take a dropper full of rubbing alcohol and drop it on the center of your design. The rubbing alcohol will cause your design to spread and make a pretty firework looking pattern.

Make as many big and little designs as you want. We even make one with a star in the middle.

Let your DIY fireworks shirt dry, set it with a hot iron and it's good to go! The kiddos loved making our DIY fireworks shirts to wear this 4th of July!
