DIY Eraser-Stamped 4th of July Shirt

It’s DIY 4th of July shirt time!  I wasn’t kidding when I said I was going to make an eraser-stamped shirt for every holiday.  (If you’re new here, you can see what I’m talking about here and here.)  They are so easy and cute, I just couldn’t resist!  Added bonus… this 4th of July shirt looks SO good with the pinwheel hair clips that I made last week.

If you’re kids are talented, you could even let them make their own.  I’m not brave enough to let them completely go at it alone, but I do let them help with the dots a little.

My favorite part about these eraser-stamped shirts is that you don’t need any special equipment to make them.  Just grab some scissors, and you’re good to go.

You’ll also need:

star pattern
– a shirt
Freezer Paper (found mine at the grocery store)
– fabric paint
– pencil with an unused eraser

First, trace the star shape on the NON-shiny side of a piece of freezer paper and cut it out.  If you were doing a more intricate design, you could use an X-Acto knife, but scissors worked fine here.

DIY 4th of July Shirt

Put the star on your shirt, shiny side down, and iron in on.

Dip the eraser of your pencil in blue and red paint and start stamping around the star.  Put another piece of freezer paper or cardboard inside the shirt to keep the paint from bleeding through.

I like to put the dots closer together around the star and then fade them out.  Kind of makes it look like a firework!

Once the paint is dry, peel the star off.  Follow the instructions on your paint to heat set it.  This usually involves ironing or putting it in the dryer.

Will the freezer paper stick to the shirt when you iron it, then peel off?

Yep, that's what it does. Just make sure it's shiny side down when you iron it. Here's a video of my St. Patrick's Day shirt to see the process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTBiWm2R8b8&t=47s

We made these with our toddlers in our preschool class. We used fabric markers to put their names and 2017 on them and had them do the dots (not with a pencil but a larger stamper in fabric paint). They came out awesome!!! Wish I could upload a pic here for you all to see. :)

That sounds so cute! Smart idea to use a larger stamp for little ones. Glad the project worked out for you! :)

Such a cute idea! Can you tell me where you found the white t-shirt? I can't seem to find ones that fit that well :(

Target is my go to place for plain white, fitted shirts for girls. I was just there yesterday and they were on sale for $5.00. The toddler section had some cute ones with little bows as well. Hope that helps!
