How to Make Flower Print Shirts with Natural Dye

So what to do when your kids get overzealous with the flowers and pick off a few of your beautiful blooms? Make flower prints

All you need
A t-shirt
rubber mallet
wax paper or saran wrap or paper towels
hard table or sidewalk etc.

1. Go for a walk and pick some beautiful flowers with vibrant colors. 

2. Lay down the t-shirt put the flower on the shirt cover with wax paper or paper towel or saran wrap and hit with rubber mallet until color bleeds through to dye the fabric. The flowers (AND LEAVES) will leach out all of there natural flower dyes... Creating beautiful flowers!

3. Let it dry, wash it, colors should hold in the fabric but don't bleach it our use strong detergents or stain removers!! Your finished project will be a beautiful naturally died t-shirt or bag or bandana or whatever else you come up with!!

I will try to take some pictures of the after, these flowers have not been washed off yet!
