Patriotic Handprint Shirt

With the 4th of July coming up, I thought it would be nice to make one of these t-shirts with my youngest.  I found it over here on CraftyErin
What you will need:
White T-shirt or tank top
Red and Blue Paint
Painters Tape (optional)
Paint Brush
Dish to hold paint
This is a pretty straightforward project and it was easy enough that my daughter was able to do this by herself (well mostly).
First you are going to want to lay out your shirt and place the cardboard on the inside of it so that the paint doesn't soak through.  I didn't have any fabric paint so I used acrylic paint.  I plan on only handwashing this shirt so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.
Paint your childs hand.  This of course is my daughters favorite part.
Firmly press their little hand down in the upper right part of the shirt.
Let this dry.
After that dried, I started making stripes out of painters tape.  I did this so that it would be easier for my daughter to paint straight lines by herself.
Paint between the tape with the red.
Let dry.
There you have it!  Easy and fun to do. 
Cost of this Project:
$3.47 for the shirt at Walmart
Paint, Brush, and painters tape I already had on hand.

Did you make this craft? Link me to it! I would love to see it!
