Firework Clippies … from stained shirts

Pin It Now!


Ya know that 4th of July kick I’ve been on?

Yup … still there.

I’ve been watching for fun holiday clippies for my girls to go with their new flag tees (more on those later). And while there are so many cute flower-corker-ribbon-tulle clippies out there, I was looking for a bit of a change.

Enter the Firework Clippie.


Cute and shabby and oh-so easy to switch up for any holiday or outfit.

Want to make your own?

You’ll need your nicest, faded-out Sundance shirt, old-for-painting-only white polo and ratty Superman shirt.


Or whatever.  :)   Rock What Ya Got, right?

And you can make these in minutes.

Cut red, white and blue shirts in 0.5” x 4” lengths. Stack 12 strips together and tack together in the center with a few stitches.


Tie a 3” strip around the middle and glue in your clip.


Easy. Quick. Done.


Firework clippies perfect for those hometown parades, pancake breakfasts and firework displays.

Happy Crafting!

  1. That was easy, fun & adorable!! Making some of these for the 4th! Thanks for the awesome tutorial!

  2. Nike, you rock my world. These are so cute and easy and unique - I am definitely making some.

  3. That is great. I just threw out a few stained t-shirts (shameful, I know) today, but I am going to rescue them from the garbage and make some of these. Great idea--and cute model. Happy 4th!

  4. Those are too cute! Makes me wish I had a little girl to make some for:)

  5. I could make a million of these with all my kids stained shirts!

  6. These are super cute! I love how easy they are, and how festive they look in the pigtails! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks so much for the comment love! I do cartwheels when I read each one. Well, I imagine my pre-pregnancy self doing cartwheels, but you get the idea ...
