Fireworks Shirt

The 4th of July is coming up and I wanted to create a Fireworks Shirt to wear for the holiday. Do you like to wear holiday shirts?

I have always loved watching fireworks, whether it is for the 4th of July or we are at a baseball game and they are having fireworks night. I love all the colors that you can make fireworks out of, the possibilities are endless.

The fireworks shirt would also make a great shirt to ring in the new year, using gold and silver HTV to create this sparktacular shirt.

You can resize the fireworks to add as many as you like to your shirt. For the small fireworks I resized mine to 5.022″ x 5.244″. I wouldn’t go smaller than this or it may be hard weeding the small circles and stars and you may loose some of the smaller circles.

I created two fireworks shirts, the first one was done with a sparkle iron-on vinyl that had shades of pink and purple.

The fireworks shirt design reminds you of the circle and star gems that you can put on clothes to make them look sparkly when using holographic iron-on vinyl.

Materials Needed

  • Holographic HTV in your choice of color(s)
  • Shirt
  • Easy Press Mat
  • Easy Press 2

The second fireworks shirt I created I used a different sparkle iron-on vinyl that had red, blue and yellow.

Do the same with the other small fireworks piece

I used a ruler to make sure that the two small fireworks were placed about the same place before ironing the second one on
