Art class

A onesie decorated by Lucky and me.
An art teacher of my acquaintance, Gail, is leading art and craft workshops with some moms and their toddlers this summer.

This week, we decorated T-shirts using an easy technique involving acrylic paint and Elmer’s glue.

It’s a two-day process but it’s worth it because the results are pretty.

First, find a white T-shirt or any light-colored shirt. Place some cardboard inside the shirt and dabble it with Elmer’s glue. Let the shirt dry overnight.

Once the glue is dry, brush over the front with multiple colors of acrylic paint. Make designs. Do it however you want.

Once the paint is dry, wash and dry the shirt and enjoy wearing your own custom-made design.

    Cool! You’ll have to show me how. OR we could get together and do this with our kids. I have a bunch of tie-dye and rubber bands!
