Happy Fourth of July Ladies!!!!
I am so thankful for the freedom we have in this good old country of the USA! Just like any country, we are made up of humans who are just that, humans, who will fail, sin, and wander away from the Lord. But. . . Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom! So sing it from the rooftops! The Lord Reigns!
I saw this super fun idea to paint a t-shirt in the pattern of the American flag! I had a white t-shirt, so I thought I would give it a try!
This DIY project was so fun and easy! Thank you Joshua and Pinterest! Joshy hooked up his computer to the Silhouette machine and cut me a bunch of stars out of contact paper so it was sticky on one side. Joshua, who is really good at doing perfect things measure out all of the distances between stars and stuck them to the shirt.
Then I painted over top of the stars with Mama’s Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I used the Napoleanic Blue color.
Peeling the stickers off was so gratifying. . .*grin*
Next, was I taped off all of the stripes. Joshua, being so smart pointed out that the stripe directly underneath the stars is supposed to be white. I painted it red. . . Hmmmm. . .
TAAA—DAAAA!!!! *boom!* do you hear the fireworks?
So her is the day’s outfit!!
Can you tell that I am geeked about my shirt?!?!
~ Flag shirt. . . bought from Walmart but decorated by me
~ Skirt: Hand-me-down
~ Flip-flops: Flojoh’s from Costco $10
~ Earrings: Jewels by Julia
~ Necklace: Add to Beauty I picked this one because it reminded me of a flying eagle. . .
Well, once all of the girls saw my finished shirt they all begged me to make them one. I couldn’t say no. . . So fun!
