Halloween Craft

Stephanie is my crafty friend. I’m in awe of her, because she sometimes has her kids’ birthday parties at home, complete with crafts.  Lately, she’s been into making tie-dye shirts with all of the neighborhood kids.  And they are adorable.  The latest are Halloween shirts and dresses.  It doesn’t show well in the photos, but each of the black creatures has glow-in-the-dark eyes.  Stephanie got the shirts/dresses and orange paint at http://www.dharmatrading.com.  And the puffy paint is from Michaels.  Amazingly, she made most of the stencils herself. 

First, the shirt is “sprayed” with tie-dye paint and left to dry. Then, the stencil is taped to the shirt, and the black puffy paint is applied inside the stencil with a sponge brush, and the puffy, glow-in-the-dark paint is applied for eyes.  Then the shirt has to dry again for 24 hours.
