When you make the in the mist kids' T-shirt, you'll remember your last walk through the woods by using the materials you collected on your trek. Fern fronds work well, but any kind of large leaves will work.
What You'll Need:
- White T-shirt
- Transparent fabric paint mist: tea dye brown, emerald green, and cornflower blue
- Fern fronds or other large leaves
- Waxed paper
- Newspapers (optional)
- Glue stick (optional)
How to make the in the mist kids' T-shirt:
Step 1: Spread shirt out on waxed paper or newspaper-covered work surface. (You may want to work outside or in the garage.) Place waxed paper between front and back of the shirt and inside the sleeves.
Step 2: Cut fern fronds and arrange on front of the shirt. If desired, lightly touch a glue stick to any leaves that are sticking up. This isn't necessary, but it helps make a clearer image when painted.
Step 3: Shake brown paint well. Spray in a diagonal area at bottom right of shirt. Repeat with green paint, slightly overlapping paint colors and continuing up in a diagonal direction.
Continue pattern with blue paint. If necessary, use brown again to fill in extra space at the top left corner of the shirt.
Step 4: Carefully remove fern fronds and let shirt dry. You can paint the back of the shirt in the same way, with or without the fern fronds.
