DIY Alert: Americana Shorts

As we get ready to celebrate our fab nation's b-day (see our Canada Day DIY here), our friends south of the border are about to ring in the 4th of July!
Since we can't get enough of the Americana trend, we thought this was the perfect time to bust out a stars and stripes DIY. 

Here's what you need to get your DIY on.

-A pair of blue shorts  (new or revamp an old pair!)
-Paint brush
-Spray bottle
-White fabric paint
-Red fabric paint
-A pen
- A piece of cardboard 

Step 1:

Cut a star out of cardboard.

Step 2:

Mix 1 part water, 3 parts white fabric paint in a spray bottle.
Shake well! 

Step 3:

Place the star on your shorts, and spray away! Add as many stars as you'd like.
*The paint might run a little bit, but it only adds character! 

Step 4: 

On the right leg, paint on red stripes.

Step 5:

Admire your ready to wear American flag shorts!
