FIRSTLY, LETS GET YOU A SUPPLY LIST:
- T-Shirt (50/50 Blend-Cotton & Polyester)
- Magnolia Design Stencil- Shop Here
- Ink-Grey, Blue & Red
- Magnolia Drying Gun
- Stir Stick
- Small cut apart squeegees
- Parchment Paper
SECONDLY, LETS GET INTO MAKING THE CRAFT:
To start this DIY, I grabbed my “Peace, Love and America” Magnolia Design Co stencil which can be found on my shop. I then placed my stencil on the material and used my hand to go in circular motions, securing the stencil in place before adding ink. It’s also very important that you have something inside the shirt such as piece of cardboard to ensure that the ink doesn’t bleed onto the back of the shirt. Next, I took the blue ink and mixed it up before spreading it over the stars. Afterwords, I took the red ink and began spreading it over the heart.
THIRDLY, LETS PUT THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON THIS FOURTH OF JULY T-Shirt:
The last color of ink I used was gray to use on the peace and American bell. Finally, I took all 3 colors of ink and spread it over the words. As seen In the video, I spread out the colors on different letters then mixed it all together. I love how it turned out. Lastly, I began removing the stencil off the T-shirt. I made sure not to pull the stencil off to quickly and I made sure everything looked ok before fulling removing it. After you’ve removed the stencil, place the non sticky side into water for cleaning. Also, to speed up the process I used my Magnolia drying gun. Otherwise you will want to allow 24 hours for your material to dry.
FINALLY, YOU HAVE MADE A FOURTH OF JULY T-shirt:
When the shirt was completely dry I took an iron on the cotton setting, with parchment paper and pressed it onto the material. I went back and forth with heat for about 3 mins and then repeated that step with it inside out. Now you have a made a DIY Fourth of July T-Shirt. This shirt turned out so cute and I love how I incorporated my Magnolia Design stencil. Overall this is a fairly simple budget friendly T- Shirt idea that is perfect for summer!
