Project Instructions

Step 1 Use chalk pencil to draw a curvy line diagonally across shirt. Trace over using Leaf Green dimensional paint.

Step 2 Using Leaf Green again, paint small evenly spaced dots running down both sides of cord. These will be the bases of the bulbs. Let dry.

Step 3 Trace bulb shape onto cardstock. Cut out bulb shape and trace bulbs with white chalk at painted dots.

Step 4 Paint in bulbs using Crimson Red, Royal Blue and Lime paint. Let dry.

Step 5 Spray over each bulb with Sparkling Star spray paint.

Optional: Make the bulbs more realistic by using White dimensional paint and paint a thin short line toward the edge of bulb to look like reflective glass.
