Easy Cow Shirts

These last minute cow shirts are quick and easy to put together! We just made one for this year's Cow Appreciation Day at Chick Fil A! It took me about 10 minutes to make the shirt but that was with all the photos to show you how to make one, too.

My husband, eldest son and I all had shirts from last year that still fit but my youngest son needed a new shirt and I procrastinated until today to do it.


What you need:
White shirt
Black shirt or fabric to cut circular shapes
Scissors
Hot glue gun (if you have more time you can sew them, it's what we did last year -2015)


Directions:
Cut out the shapes from the black fabric, I used an old shirt that I had managed to stain with nail polish.
Lay them out where you want them on the shirt, then glue.
Try to get the glue close to the edges of the black spots, and if you don't and there are spots that are leaning over because the glue is too far in the middle just go back and add a bit more glue.


Have fun and Eat Mor Chikin!!

Need a mask check out how to make one using a styrofoam or paper plate!

Firework "Tie Dye" Shirts

Can't believe the 4th of July is just two days away, but there is still time to make these awesome Firework "Tie Dye" Shirts!! This year my eldest son helped me make some fun firework "tie dye" shirts for the 4th of July. This was such an easy project and my 3 year old got to do the majority of the work all by himself with just supervision to make sure he didn't color anywhere but on the t-shirts.


We used one t-shirt and one onsie for little brother. The t-shirt we picked up at Walmart for about $3 and the onsie we already had on hand. We also already had the Sharpie Markers and rubbing alcohol.

What you will need to make this project:
T-shirts,
Permanent Markers (in red and blue),
Rubbing Alcohol,
Piece of cardboard or styrofoam (Something to stick inside the shirt to keep the marker colors from soaking into the back of the shirt.)


You can make fireworks by putting straight lines coming out from a center or by doing lots of dots (I like the straight line fireworks best but my son liked making dots).

When you're done drawing on the fireworks it's time to pour or spray the rubbing alcohol onto the shirt, trying to hit the center of your fireworks so the fireworks get bigger as the rubbing alcohol spreads from  the center to the ends.

Allow the shirt to dry (completely) then hand wash before wearing.


Happy Independence Day!!
