We had so much fun creating the glitter Christmas tree shirts that we shared yesterday. Lovey was eager to make some more glitter creations, so we started with a different Christmas tree shirt for kids.
Like yesterday’s shirt, this one was very easy and quick to create, perfect for the busy holiday season!
We stared with a plain shirt (pre-washed without fabric softener), a piece of cardboard, painter’s tape, Tulip Fashion Glitter, and Tulip Fashion Glitter Bond, and Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint.
This was a long shirt, so I measured where I wanted the end of the Christmas tree to sit in relation to Lovey’s waist and place a small piece of tape there. Then we added two strips of painter’s tape to work as a guide for applying the Glitter Bond.
I started at the top and went back and forth in a slow steady movement. Well, as steady as I could after an intense bootcamp workout earlier that morning that left my arms feeling a bit like gelatin. I found holding the bottle with both hands helped me keep it more steady. That might help if you feel like your hands shake a bit.
I also went back and used a toothpick to smooth out any bumps or stray bits of glue.
Then Lovey got started with a glitter party. She generously applied the Fabric Glitter. Then we poured the excess from the shirt to save it for another project.
Below the tree we added a small rectangle of Fashion Glitter Bond and sprinkled on gold Fashion Glitter.
To add a little festive touch we went back and added Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint ornaments.
Now Lovey and Tinker are ready to sparkle at all of our holiday events.
Have you made any projects with Fashion Glitter? I think we might be addicted, and I know Lovey will be looking forward to creating more sparkly crafts soon.
Less stress, more connecting this holiday season? Yes, PLEASE!
From the arrival of fall to Halloween to Thanksgiving and Christmas, the last four months of the year can be a wonderful opportunity for making family memories and spending time together, but they can also be stressful as we try to collect ideas, recipes, and activities to try together.
Stephanie Morgan, founder of Modern Parents Messy Kids, a site that’s been voted Best Craft Blog in Parents Magazine and one of babble.com’s Top 50 Craft Mom Blogs, recently released a new eBook to help us have a little less stress and more time to connect with family this year, and I’m so glad to be an affiliate for such a great resource.
Stephanie’s goal is to make it easier on all of us to enjoy the holidays with our kids. Hands-On Holidays is 100 pages full of her family’s very favorite ways to connect as a family over the holiday season. I love the convenience of having so many ideas in one place, and most of them are simple enough for even my toddler to participate in.
The book includes picture book suggestions, DIY decor, activities, and treats. Bonus sections also offer even more ideas to enjoy. Click here to view more details.
