Happy Canada Day! {part 2}

I made my kids shirts for Canada Day this morning- wish I hadn't left making them until the last minute. But this week flew by super-fast!

Anyways, trying to get a picture of them together can sure be tricky. This is the best that I got. My daughter was tired and needed her nap & was mad that I wouldn't let her run around.

I started out with 2 shirts from Walmart (they were $4 each.)

I washed them before I got to work so they were pre-shrunk. For my son's shirt, I originally wanted a white shirt with red paint on it. But he is 3 and a half and wants everything to be blue- his fave colour. So I let him get blue and used black paint instead. I think the red and white would have looked better, but oh well!

So I had him dip his hand in paint and then put his hand on the shirt. His hand acts as the maple leaf of the flag. Then I made the sides with a foam brush. I wasn't concerned about perfection.

For my daughter's shirt, In used freezer paper and a maple leaf die cut to make my stencil. And I cut the sides of the flag out of the freezer paper using my paper trimmer.

I decided to make it pink and girly. So after I pained on the pink, I added some glitter paint over top. Super cute!

Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians! Enjoy your long weekend! :)
