‘MERICA – DIY Shorts & The Ultimate USA Playlist

Happy Almost 4th of July! As is true of most Americans, I procrastinate my celebration planning. However, I could not be happier with my DIY shorts I made last night! Trust me, it only takes a few hours (via drying time) to make these.

Supplies:

  • Jean Shorts (White would be cute, too!)
  • Craft Paint in Red, White & Blue (I used American brand in True Red, True Blue and Snow from Hobby Lobby)
  • Painters Tape
  • Star Stickers
  • Foam Brushes

Step 1: Paint both sides of your shorts in White. I used the largest foam brush.

Step 2: Let it dry. After a Jillian Michaels work out video, episode of Pretty Little Liars and shower …

Step 3: Tape it.

Step 4: Paint over your stickers/tape. I used the large brush for the blue, and the medium for the red.

And while it’s not a requirement, listening to my ‘MERICA playlist on Spotify will definitely add to the experience.

Have a Happy Independence Day!
