Recently, a friend of mine gave me a box of baby clothes but it was taped so I had no idea what was inside of it. You should have seen my face when I discovered tons of new, white onesies because all I could think of was ideas to make them super cute for Evelynne. Now, I know that Evelynne won’t (or shouldn’t) be here in time to wear this for Halloween but I do have some friends with babies that I can give this as a gift.
If you have a baby they will look adorable in a onesie that Mommy or Daddy made. Or if you know someone that is having a baby in time for Halloween this will be a super cute idea to give as a gift.
What do you need? Super simple and easy supply list….
A onesie or t-shirt in the size you desire, sharpie markers in orange, green and brown, a piece of card and if you have clips they will help keep the onesie in place. Oh and don’t forget to print out the pumpkin stencil in this post.
Step 1: Put the cardboard inside the onesie to help catch the marker bleeds, pull the cloth tight and clip (if you have clips). The tighter the onesie, the easier the markers will glide and less bleeding.
Step 2: Trace the Pumpkin Stencil with Pencil. This can seem difficult because of the grooves of the onesie but keep at it because it makes life easier to get your stencil down in pencil first.
Step 3: Outline your pumpkin in brown and orange
Step 4: Make your Pumpkin how you want. For my onesie, I used brown dots then colored the pumpkin in with orange lines and then added my words which I did free hand. You can use fabric paint or sequins to flash it up.
It is that time of year to decorate for Halloween! My family and I can’t wait until it hits October because then we pull out the awesome Halloween decorations we have made or bought over the years. My first Teach Me Tuesday DIY tutorial is a really easy Halloween themed yarn garland that the kids can help make for their rooms too!
All you are going to need:
Yarn in orange, white, black and green (or if you want to get colorful other colors)
Your hands or piece of cardboard 2-3″ to make the pom poms
Here is how to make the Ghosts:
To make the spiders, follow the same steps as the pumpkins just cut the yarn short to make them look like legs.
With the start of the school year for both Danyella and I, life has become so overwhelming that I feel like my brain is just spinning out of control. For the remainder of September, I am taking Tuesdays off from blogging so that I can get myself on a schedule with school, pregnancy and life. Starting Tuesday, October 3rd, I will be starting Teach Me Tuesday with DIY projects for the upcoming holidays for adults and kids to make the holiday season fun.
