You asked for it…you got it! I posted our Family Skeleton Costumes about this time last year and promised to give you the how-to….better late than never, right? I was inspired by this project on one of my favorite blogs, Make It And Love It. Now, for all you preggos out there–put on your crafty hats and let’s get to gettin’!
a cotton black shirt and pants, freezer paper, pencil, craft knife, iron, paint brush and white fabric paint
Sketch your design on the flat (non-shiny) side of your freezer paper (use the internet for “bone inspiration” or use my pictures as a guide). Next, cut out your stencil using your craft blade…
Once you are finished cutting out your images, iron your stencil to your shirt (with the shiny side down to the fabric). Be sure to get all the edges so that your paint doesn’t slip under…
Use about 3 coats of white fabric paint (letting each layer dry in between coats). TIP: be sure to put cardboard in the middle of the shirt so that the paint doesn’t bleed through to the back!
Once the paint is dry simply peel up the freezer paper stencil…this part is REALLY fun!
And there you have it! Yes…this is me in all my pregnant glory!! Check out the rest of the Family Skeleton Costumes and go as a group!
