It’s been a while since I’ve seen a beautiful rainbow. Rainbows are absolutely lovely. It’s like a special event every time that we see one. For our family, a rainbow is a reminder of God’s promise in Genesis 9:13. My daughter knows the story of the flood, and every time she sees one she recounts it for anyone who will listen. While going through an old memory card this week, I stumbled across a few photos of a project that I made for my daughter this spring but I never posted! We made this Puffy Paint Rainbow Shirt after one of those rainbow siting occasions.
- White shirt
- Piece of cardboard
- Various colors of Puffy Paint- All the colors that I’m using for this project can be found in this (affiliate link) Tulip Dimensional Paint pack from Amazon
- Cardstock rectangle the size of a shirt pocket.
Place the piece of cardboard in between the shirt layers. Put the cardstock rectangle in the place where the shirt would normally have a shirt pocket. I cut my rectangle shape out with a die cutting machine, thus the scalloped top edge. Feel free to play around with the exact shape.
Use one color of Puffy paint to create the outline.
Remove the cardstock rectangle. Use various Puffy Paint colors to make the rainbow in the middle of the outline.
Fill in the remainder of the empty outline with a single color. Let the paint dry according to the paint instructions.
You can use this method to create any themed shirt of your choosing. Maybe an apple or pumpkin for fall? Play around with different colored shirts and paints! I am using Tulip paint for this project. This post is not sponsored by them in any way; I’ve been using their Puffy paint since I was a teenager. It’s the best for these type of projects!
What type of shirt would your little one like to make?
