Stars and Stripes
- White Hoodie
- Tulip Fabric Spray Paint – One red and one blue
- Masking Tape
- Freezer Paper – this irons onto clothing and peels off easily
Let me say up front – This was incredibly time consuming, but totally worth it. I started with the stripes on the arms first. I layered two strips of masking tape for each stripe, and measured to make sure I spaced them correctly. It’s harder than it looks to tape all the way around a hoodie so I started with the front and then connected the tape around the back once I got there.
Then I moved onto the stars. I printed out the size of star I wanted, cut it out, and traced them onto the freezer paper (about 30 times). Then I cut them out and placed them where I wanted them. Then I ironed them on (shiny side down or it won’t work).
I took the hoodie to my garage and covered the blue part with grocery bags and taped them down. And then I sprayed. And let me tell you. It took a LOT of paint to cover this hoodie. A LOT. I waited for the red to dry but it took longer than I expected. I would suggest putting a fan near by to make it dry faster. Then I covered the red and did the blue.
