Cuz sometimes you just wanna drink craft beer & make spooky halloween t-shirts. You could use these for a costume, a halloween party, or just to wear anytime in the month of october (or whenever, idk). So much fun to make & equally as fun to wear, let’s do dis DIY halloween crew neck t-shirt thing.
We had an idea of what we wanted to do with our t-shirts, but wanted options, so we grabbed a buncha stuff from the craft store. We got three t-shirts (3 for $10, can’t go wrong), some fabric paint, paint brushes, googly eyes, glue & pom-poms. The other supplies we used were an x-acto knife, scissors, sharpie/pen & some cardboard. But honestly, you can use whatever you want for your t-shirt. So many options & all of this was right under $20, so definitely an inexpensive activity!
We didn’t end up using all the supplies we got, but it never hurts to have some extra crafty bits. I could see doing this with kids, with friends & beer, or even for a last minute halloween costume. Jackie made a jack-o-lantern, Brett’s t-shirt is charlie brown & mine is distressed with some expertly placed skeleton hands. But you could make whatever! Jackie drew a face on her orange t-shirt & I cut the face out like you would carve a pumpkin. Then she used the yellow t-shirt to fill in the holes and make it look like it was glowing from the inside. Brett’s is literally just sharpie, so easy!
Jackie made the stencil for my skeleton hands out of cardboard & then I used a paintbrush & white fabric paint to add them onto my shirt dress (I got a large so it would be really big). We used scissors to rip holes in my shirt to make it look a bit grungy and distressed. I kinda really love how they came out & it was a fairly cheap spooky craft! I low-key wanna just wear this around in the month of october cuz it’s close enough to halloween to get away with it (maybe).
In da comments, I wanna know if there are any halloween crafts you like to do. And if you end up making your own halloween t-shirts, definitely let me know, I’d love to see them!
