WOW! Did you know that Saturday, August 20th is "National Lemonade Day"? We don't know about you but we just love lemonade and we also love this lemon shirt. It's clean and crisp and makes for the perfect project. And it totally makes us want to listen to Beyonce too! Today we will show you how easy it is to use Tulip ColorShot Instant Fabric and a freezer paper stencil technique to get this summery look!
Scissors or X-acto Knife
Plastic table cloth
Beyonce was very clear when she said, “Prove to me you got some coordination (cause i slay), slay trick or you get eliminated.” We are pretty sure she was referring to style saying that. Lucky us, we have this awesome lemonade garment that will rock your socks this season.
To do this project you will refer to the above steps and also below for a written description.
Step One: Print out any design you want to use for your garment. We suggest using bold designs.
Step Two: Place a piece of wax paper on top of your print out and trace your designs with a pencil.
Step Three: Carefully cut out designs on wax paper with scissors or x-acto knife. If your kids are doing this project please monitor them for this step or possibly cut it all out for them.
Step Four: Iron your cut out wax pieces onto your garment. Again, monitor kids for this step!
Step Five: Get your Lemonade Color Shot spray and add a light coat of spray onto garment. We suggest adding multiple light coats until you reach the desired color. Spraying too much at one time could lead to color bleeding under the wax paper and we do NOT want that! (Tip: If you only want the cut outs to be sprayed make sure to cover and tape off any part of the garment that you do NOT want the spray to get)
Step Six: Allow the shirt to dry completely then carefully peel off wax paper to see your masterpiece.
We hope you enjoyed this project and that you enjoy this "Lemonade Season"... #beyoncemademedoit #ilovetocreate #lemonade
