DIY :: Halloween Skeleton Baby Maternity Shirt

With Halloween just around the corner, what are you dressing up as? I won’t be partaking in Halloween this year (first year in awhile!) due to a busy travel and work schedule, but that didn’t stop me from creating something for Halloween! I decided to make my expecting sister  a maternity shirt for her Trick or Treat night out this year. It was so much fun making this shirt, partly because I’m super excited to meet my baby nephew.

Read further for step by step instructions on how to make this fun and simple Halloween DIY project! Alternatively, you can buy a similar version from here.


What you will need:
  • A t-shirt. I opted for a long sleeve black shirt from H&M (it was only $12.95) but you can use any colour!
  • Aleene’s Jewel-It glue (you can purchase at a local art supplies store or here)
  • Fabric glue (I used a spray paint version from Tulip, you can purchase at local art supplies store or here)
  • A think paint brush
  • Make up sponges
  • Plate or container to hold paint
  • A handful of pink sequins
  • Exacto Knife
  • Pencil/Marker
  • Paper (have some thicker ones on hand or parchment paper works too)

DIY Halloween Skeleton Baby Maternity Shirt - How To
Start by drawing out your skeleton shape onto a piece of paper with pencil. When you’re happy with it, trace over with a marker so you can see it clearly. Alternatively, if you don’t want to draw your shape from scratch, download my drawing here.

Then cut out your shape with an exacto knife. Be sure to line with a piece of foam board or cardboard so that you don’t cut into your working surface.

I then laid the stencil over a piece of coloured, thicker paper and cut out the shape again. This is what I’ll be using to do the actual stencil painting onto the shirt. You can also use parchment paper, but I find it really thin to cut from. I also picked a coloured piece of paper because it helps me see the white paint when I apply the paint.
DIY Halloween Skeleton Baby Maternity Shirt - Stencil
Lay your skeleton stencil on top of your shirt and tape it down. I also taped my shirt onto my working surface to prevent it from moving around. Be sure to line the inside of your shirt as well to prevent paint from seeping through.
DIY Halloween Skeleton Baby Maternity Shirt - Apply
Pour some of your fabric paint onto a disposable plate. Use a sponge to get some paint and pat the excess off. I used a make up sponge, it worked well as it doesn’t have as many spongy holes in it. Work your way from top to bottom and making sure that you press the stencil down as you’re working your way around the edges. Repeat this 3 to 4 times (depending on your fabric glue), leaving some room to dry in between applications.

Continue with the baby feet stencil (I didn’t include a template as I feel you should be creative with this part!). Once again apply paint 3 to 4 times.

Wait half hour for the paint to dry, and remove the stencils from the shirt. Go over with a paint brush to create more definition and fill in any gaps you may have.
DIY Halloween Skeleton Baby Maternity Shirt - Paint Brush
Create the heart by applying a thin layer of Jewel It glue as shown in the picture below.

Use a tweezer to apply a layer of sequins onto the glue, overlap sequins to cover the entire surface of the heart and let dry.

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A handful of my blog readers have complained about my
    website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?
