shorts for the 4th of July #gingersnapcrafts #tutorial #decoart #4thofJuly

A few weeks ago I was out shopping with my girls for some summer clothes, and my 6 year old spotted these shorts:

Of course, she wanted them right then! Buuuut I told her I bet we could make a pair! ๐Ÿ™‚ We had just gone through their school clothes, & I had a huge bag of jeans that were too short or had holes in their knees in our garage. So when we got home I pulled out an old pair, cut them into shorts & then we got to work! ๐Ÿ™‚


I used DecoArt SoSoft fabric paint, a stencil we already had & a foam brush to make ours.

I love the DecoArt SoSoft Fabric paint! It dries nice & flexible, not stiff like some paints can be!

I used the foam brush to make the stripes. This was a super fast project. I bet it only took us about 10 minutes to finish our shorts. This would be a great project for the kiddos to work on. ๐Ÿ™‚

All done! ๐Ÿ™‚
