Happy Fourth of July, Sharpie patriots! In honor of this most American holiday and the fact that this year’s independence celebrations fall on a Thursday (ahem, #tbt), we have gone into the Sharpie vault for some of our favorite projects and added some NEW ones to the mix!
Shine from sea to shining sea with Sharpie!
Uncap your shades! One of our most popular and worthy of #tbt!
In honor of the big 2-3-6, we are showing off our freedom flair, and a little leg, by sporting shorts that scream “U.S.A! U.S.A! U.S.A!”
back it up with Stained by Sharpie
AND they couldn’t get much easier to whip up: A couple of Stained by Sharpie markers, a pair of white cut-offs, some stars and stripes and BOOM you are one hot little firecracker!
Now, we want to see yours! Show us how you are reppin’ your Sharpie stars and stripes on Facebook this 4th of July– and beyond (helllooo London 2012 Summer Games!! Just THINK of the outfit opportunities), and we might just share YOUR design with the rest of the Sharpie world!
USA! USA! USA! Add some “bang, boom, wowwww” to your Fourth of July BBQ with these Sharpie-fied cups! Scatter some Sharpie markers around the table and have your guests show off their USA pride. These cheery cups, turned table toppers, will put you right in the holiday spirit. It is America’s 235 birthday after all…
I’m always in search of a good piece of Red, White & Blue flair to show off my American pride- especially on the 4th of July! Nothing caught my eye this year so in true Sharpie fashion, I took it upon myself to DIY the colors of the flag…
Celebrate USA in with these DIY Sharpie Shades
In just about 5 minutes, you too can sport team USA and be the envy of all your friends! All you will need to make these American flag Sharpie shades is:
Start out by drawing an outline of half of a blue box on the left eye with a blue Sharpie paint marker. Color in the “L” shape you’ve made while drawing star outlines as you go.
Next, draw red stripes with a red Sharpie paint marker across the remaining area. If you are worried about drawing straight lines, just do as I did and cut thin strips of tape to lay across the rim. This will also ensure that the white stripes are even with the red.
Lastly, (this may not apply to everyone) if you smeared any red or blue marker onto the white space use a cotton swab to wipe of access ink. Wet one side with Rubbing Alcohol then wipe off the paint, then dry that spot off with the other end of the cotton swab.
TAH-DAH! You’re finished! Now you are set to look Sharp(ie) & celebrate the holiday weekend with family, friends & fireworks!
