DIY American Flag Shorts


I just adore flag shorts, I've been meaning to buy one, but I guess it's not very popular here in the Philippines, so why not make a pair?
 So let's get started!

Tools/Materials:
*A pair of shorts (preferably denim)
*White and Red fabric paint
*A paintbrush or sponge
*Tape
*Scissors
*Star Pattern


This is how it looks like before the process of painting it.

STEP 1:
Tape the areas where you don't want to get the paint on.

STEP 2:
Start painting the red and white stripes. I did another coat for the red stripes cause it kept getting transparent on the dark denim.

STEP 3:
Now paint the stars using your paintbrush and white fabric paint. Here's a TIP: When painting the stars, make sure that the tape is aligned diagonally, so the stars will also be aligned like that. (e.g. stars-space-stars-space)

STEP 4: (OPTIONAL)
Add studs!



Now you can wear these and show it of to your friends!
