T-shirt ( anything that isn't to stretchy)
Tote bag (we got ours at Hobby Lobby for $3)
White, green and black fabric paint
Glitter fabric paint
small paint brush
Card Board ( You can get the t-shirt inserts at a craft store or use scraps you have around the house i.e. old diaper box)
2 paper plates for your paint
First decide where you are going to want the main part of your Dandelion to be. Make sure to leave plenty of room for your seedlings. If you are doing a shirt I would recommend doing it toward the bottom of the shirt to avoid an awkwardly placed dandelion :) We did ours off to the side to give a blowing in the wind effect.
Dip the loofah in white paint, start out with a very small amount of paint until you get the hang of the technique. Then dab up and down in a slow circular motion. This will form the main part of the dandelion. The center should be more white and gradually fade toward the outer part.
Next using the black paint draw little black lines in your seedlings. Angle them at the direction you want the wind to be blowing. It looks best if you start the black in the white part of the seedling.
Ok final step to your project is to add a little sparkle.Make sure the white paint had dried a bit before you start this step. With the glitter paint and a clean paint brush paint in a somewhat circular motion on the main part of your dandelion. The circular motion will help to keep the paint from clumping up. Add a little glitter to the seedlings too.
And now you have a fun summery shirt or tote to enjoy!
