flag towel DIY

Maybe the 4th of July has come and gone, but it’s one of our favorite holidays collectively, and the valley we live is the best celebration around. We couldn’t get enough of our painted patriotic wear from last year, so we kept the theme rolling for two more ideas to add to your 4th of July attire! (We’ll be wearing ours all month long!)

Dabbing = vibrant, Dragging = distressed.

Then take a finer tip paint brush for the stars, using the same techniques above:
