Halloween T-Shirts

We are headed to the pumpkin patch today for our annual field trip.  I thought it would be fun to make some shirts.  The witch came from A Child's Year.

I cut the images on Freezer Paper.  Freezer paper is shiny on one side and dull on the other.  You flip your image and cut shiny side up.  Put the negative piece (the stencil) shiny side down on your clean t-shirt and iron on.  I spent about 1 - 2 minutes ironing.  Paint with fabric paint and a sponge brush.  Let dry then pull off the freezer paper.

The bat came from Paper Doll Dress Up.

The pumpkin and face came from Pumpkin Carving.  The face is one of the square images.

The kids got to paint their own shirts.  I used Tulip fabric paint that can be found at Michaels or Wal-Mart.  For the pumpkins, once the orange paint is dry, iron the pumpkin face template on and paint with black paint.

Here is me peeling off the freezer paper.

And here is my shirt ~ fitting some days!!!
