MAYA IN THE MOMENT TEEN CRAFT: Jumbo T-Shirt Flower Pins


Have you ever had a tie dye t-shirt FAIL? You know, like when it doesn't come out exactly the way you thought?  I did. Well, what do you do with the shirt? After all my sweat and tears, I didn't want to throw it out. I decided to try and make those cool poofy fabric flowers!


  I took my shirt and cut it up into squares. I didn't measure, I just cut different sizes. Then I sprayed them with Tulip® Fabric Spray Paint™.

Next I added dots and splatter by taking apart the bottle and drizzling the paint. I used bright colors on dakr and vice versa so they would show up good.

I love the pink on the purple!

I let them dry for four hours and washed and dried them. I cut out different sizes of circles. Honestly, I didn't know how I was going to make my flowers at this point, I had to ask my mom for help.

We took each circle and added Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue® in the center of each one and pinched it so it looked ruffley. (Is there such a word as ruffley?) Let them dry.

I used the big piece as the base and glued the tips of each pinched circle towards the center so they looked super poofy!
 See the pin back in the picture? I used the Tacky Glue and added those too, so that I can use the flowers on whatever I want. I also covered them in Tulip® Glitter Spray Paint for sparkle.


Here they are on a blouse of mine. There are super JUMBO! I will end up wearing only one on my blouse and use the other two on other things, like my purse or a hat. Maybe I'll give one to my little cousins Sarah and Bella! Next time I'll definitely make mini versions. You can also add crystals if you want!
