How To: Make Saturn’s Stripes

What You Need
Black shirt and pants
Star stickers
Oversized gold sweatshirt
Scissors
Newspaper
Orange acrylic paint (water based)
Paint brush
Fabric glue

1. Place the black outfit on a flat surface. Adhere "stars" all over, specifically covering the legs and arms, the areas not covered by the gold vest.

2. Cut the arms off this old sweatshirt. To create a polished look and to remove frayed edges, hem the arm holes with fabric glue.

3. Place the vest on a sheet of newspaper on a flat surface. Paint diagonal stripes using your paint and brush. Let dry overnight.
