Each year we unpack our green shirts for St. Patrick’s Day. This is a way to add a personalized touch to your shirt or in our case, a quick way to cover up a stain from last year’s festivities! Materials T-shirt Block (we used a cylinder) Heart foam sticker (you may have one left over from Valentine’s Day) Fabric paint Paint brush Fabric pen Cardboard We always find these items helpful too: Smock Craft tray Directions Insert your cardboard into your shirt. This will prevent your shirt from sticking together from the fabric paint. Adhere your heart sticker to your block. Don your smock. Our daughter put a small dot of fabric marker to help her have a centre point to align each of the leaves, with the bottom point of the heart touching the dot. Paint your sticker with your fabric paint. This ensures an even coat and tends to lend to a more clear shape. Use your heart shape to create the leaves of your clovers with the point in the centre. Allow to dry overnight. The next day, with your fabric marker, draw the stems of your clovers. Remove your cardboard and put on your shirt- we hope it brings you good luck! Purpose Recognizing symbols commonly associated with various cultural celebrations. Safety Notes We suggest that you wear a smock and use a craft tray to protect your clothing and surfaces.
