Spider Handprint T-shirt
While looking through sites today for Halloween crafts, I came across www.allfreecrafts.com.
They had a craft idea that inspired me.
I changed it just a little bit - made it not so...cutsie. And my boys helped me make a custom Halloween T-shirt!
You will need:
Paint & brushes (I used whatever craft paint I had)
T-shirt (I had an old orange shirt with a splotch of paint in my scrap pile!)
And kids' hands!
First, prep the area with newspaper or a drop cloth!
Next, put cardboard or newspaper inside the shirt so the paint won't run through.
See the old paint?! We'll cover that in just a sec...
Paint a little hand with black paint - don't paint the thumb!
(5 year old hands work great for this)
Press firmly and lift straight up.
Paint the hand again, turn other direction and press again.
I repeated the process with an even smaller little hand (from my 2 year old)
Add details - spooky green eyes and shiny fangs were our choice.
Maybe you'll add googly or button eyes? Shimmery embroidery thread for the web?
I'd love to see other Spider Handprint T-shirts!
If you make one, please share a link or pictures!
