Work of Art clothing

Why not let the kids wear their beautiful paintings by painting right onto white clothing? I loved seeing my daughter paint away on an old dress that was already stained. We have a new purpose for old clothing: art!

3 - 9
Est. Time:
<1 hour

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. t-shirt - or any item of clothing
  2. clothing dye
  3. small jars
  4. paint & paint brushes
  1. We used liquid clothing dyes for this, but you can use any dye and prepare it as directed.

  2. My daughter used this just like watercolors on paper. (Remember that dyes...stain! Dress the kids in old clothes while doing this project.)

  3. Once the painting's done, follow your specific dye directions. We needed to let ours set overnight and then rinse and wash. How cool is that? A painting done by kids--that they can wear!
