I have totally been lusting over these Current/Elliot Start Printed Shorts but I definitely did not want to spend that much money on them so I sought out to make my own pair! I'm super glad I did the total cost of the shorts ended up being about $15 and they only took about 1 hour to make. I'm tempted to stamp stars on a t-shirt or some tote bags, ahh the possibilities are endless!!
|DIY Star Printed Shorts|
Things You Will Need:
A pair of shorts with plain pockets (I bought mine at Old Navy for $10, they are the Diva shorts, see here)
White fabric paint
A cutting board or book
Step-By-Step How To:
|This paint goes a long way so place a little bit on a tray or a disposable plate like I did here.|
|Use a brush to apply it to your stamp that way the star is evenly coated with a thin coat of paint.|
|Stamp it on your denim!|
|And viola! A star is born ;)|
|For the stars to turn out more even place a cutting board underneath the area you are stamping.|
|If you only want a portion of the star to show up on the edges, line the edge you do not want stamped with masking tape prior to stamping a star on to the area.|
|Lightly fill in any areas that were not covered by the stamp.|
|Partial stars. Continuing stamping until you are satisfied with the number of stars on your shorts.|

That's all there is to it!! I can't wait to wear these tomorrow for the 4th of July!!
Have a great 4th of July everyone!
