4th of July Fireworks T-shirt Craft

Pin It


This 4th of July fireworks T-shirt craft idea is absolutely fabulous. Use pipe cleaners as a stamp to create this wonderful design. I found this on a great website by an American woman living in Japan like me(I'm a guy). The site has a great video tutorial in English and Japanese. Check it out.

Materials:

  • T-shirt(a bold, darker color is better)
  • various color glitter glue
  • pipe cleaners(color is not important)

Directions:
  1. Take 6 pipe cleaners, fold them on half and twist the fold to make your handle.
  2. Splay out the pipe cleaners in all directions.
  3. Lay your T-shirt own on a flat surface.
  4. Pipe glitter glue over the pipe cleaners. You can use different colors. Turn down and firmly stamp onto the T-shirt. Press down the pipe cleaners with your fingers for a good impression.
  5. Pull off your stamp, turn slightly and stamp again in the same place for a neat effect.
  6. Later, you can cut the pipe cleaners shorter to make smaller fireworks. Allow to dry.
  7. Probably a good idea to turn the T-shirt inside out when you wash it.
