Today the kids and I decided to get crafty. It doesn't happen very often, but it does happen. ;)
We got this idea from some very creative church friends who made these shirts for church camp and then again during VBS. We loved the idea and the kids loved them. You start out with a dark solid color tee shirt, roll of duck tape, a few paper towels, a piece of cardboard, and a spray bottle filled with bleach.
You duck tape an emblem or design on the shirt. We chose crosses. But, if you're creative and crafty, you can do almost anything! You tape the design on the shirt and place a piece of cardboard on the inside of the shirt to keep it from soaking through to the back. Take the spray bottle of bleach and lightly cover the shirt. Make sure to dab the duck tape with a paper towel so that when you hang it to dry you don't get a drip down from the tape.
Hang the shirt to dry and once it's dry you can remove the tape from the shirt and you've got an awesome design from the bleach.
