DIY Paint Splattered Denim Shorts, Great Kids Craft!

Looking for a fun summertime craft for the kids?  Do you have  an old pair of jeans that have seen better days but that still fit? Let your kids personalize them with some fabric paint splatters in their favorite colors!  Now you have something they can wear to display their handi-work!

You will need:

Jeans or shorts

Fabric paint

Old tooth brush and/or paint brush

Scissors (for cutting your jeans into shorts)

Newspaper to lay the denim on during splattering

Paper plate for the paint

Begin by cutting off your jeans if you are wanting to make shorts.  We left ours a little long so that they can be rolled up.

Now lay on a section of newspaper and take it outside.  Make sure your child is wearing old clothing  just in case they get some on themselves!

Dip your brush into the paint.  If you are using the toothbrush, you can rub your finger along the bristles for small splatters.  If using a paint brush, simply flick your wrist holding the brush several inches above the denim.

My daughter used pink, white, light blue and some yellow.  She just dried the brush off on the denim we cut off of the legs so that she wasn’t mixing colors in between.  That just went in the garbage so it was perfect!

Be sure to give these plenty of time to dry without being played with!  Lay on a flat surface somewhere cool.  We used the kitchen table over night and it was perfect!  She  chose not to do the backside of hers, but if you want to do both sides, you will want to make sure they are completely dry before you do the second side.

Chances are you have some worn out pants that have been thrown aside for the hot summer months.  Why not cut them off and let your child add some personality to them?

Creative Drawing Idea ~ Summer Boredom Buster Idea

I love having my kids home for the summer.  I really do.  We are getting to a point now though where they are bored and it is taking more to entertain them.  They are wanting more and more to sit in front of the television and I am wanting more and more to pull my hair out before the day is over!

It is time to get creative!  Out comes the old magazines, pens, crayons or whatever you can find to draw with and some paper for an easy craft/art project that will get them using their imaginations and be creative!

Grab an old magazine or newspaper and cut out photos that would be easy to draw around and glue them to a plain sheet of paper.  That is all the prep you need!  The rest is up to the kids to use their imagination and draw to their hearts content!  I say it was a successful project! Even my son who turns his nose up at anything that resembles homework had a ball!

Frozen Head Band, tie dye sharpie snowflakes so quick and easy PERFECT for a Frozen Party #DIY #Frozen #Party #SnowflakesFROZEN snowflake headbands, quick and easy DIY craft idea. All you need is Sharpie markers and alcohol. 

Looking for a low cost but fun idea for your little FROZEN fan?  You can make these snowflake tie dye head bands in less than 5 minutes. So fun for a Frozen Party craft idea.  If you had time you could even do a whole pillow case or bed sheet this way.

Frozen Head Band, tie dye sharpie snowflakes so quick and easy PERFECT for a Frozen Party #DIY #Frozen #Party #Snowflakes

To make these all you need is:

Sharpie Makers

Rubbing Alcohol

Spray bottle

Rubber Bands

Cups

White Handkerchiefs  or strip of white fabric ( I used strips from an old white bed sheet)

Frozen Head Band, tie dye sharpie snowflakes so quick and easy PERFECT for a Frozen Party #DIY #Frozen #Party #SnowflakesPut the white fabric on top of the cups. Use the rubber bands to secure the fabric on to the cups. Make them tight so you can draw on the tops.  Use the Sharpie markers to draw snowflakes on to the fabric stretched over the top of the cups.

You can take the rubber bands off at this time or leave them on.  Set the fabric out in the sun to dry, or toss in the dyer if you are in a hurry.
