Glitter Halloween Ghost T-Shirt & Giveaway (Over)

Halloween is just around the corner. Believe it or not. I know it’s still SO HOT outside, but I like to get a head start on my Halloween craft making so it doesn’t run up too closely to Thanksgiving and Christmas.  My favorite time of the year is here for getting creative!!

JoAnn’s now carries this amazing glitter paint we spotted. Had to get some to try out! It’s called FolkArt Extreme Glitter by Plaid. They come in many amazing colors. I have been waiting for glitter paint! I knew I wanted to make another shirt with my daughter- and picked up the color Silver.

I also used their FolkArt paints in White & Orange for this shirt.

I purchased a black fitted girls shirt from Target.I love their fitted shirts.  However a regular T-Shirt would work just as great. I put a piece of wax paper inside of the shirt in case any paint may bleed through.

Using a sponge brush I painted my daughters (clean) foot with white FolkArt paint. I made sure I coated it very heavily.

I placed the shirt on the ground and after I painted her foot (she was in a sitting position) had her carefully place her foot on the shirt (turning the shirt upside down to her) So the toes face downward and helped her press the foot in heavily.

We used newspaper as well to protect the floor. Carefully lifted her foot up and now we had her foot print. She totally LOVED having her foot painted. Using baby wipes- to remove/clean her foot worked great. Easy clean up!

I then used one of my Donna Dewberry brushes by Plaid that I call the scruffy brush. (Maybe that is the official name too?) But any paint brush would work really. I used more of the white to help fill in areas on the foot print that I wanted more white paint to cover on the “ghost”.

Now for the GLITTER.  My daughter and I LOVEEE anything glittery so this was the exciting step.

We waited a few minutes for the white of the ghost to dry.  We helped it along by using a blow dryer to speed up the drying process. We may be crafty but we are NOT very patient. HAHA

Using another paint brush we painted on the FolkArt Extreme Glitter silver paint all over the ghost. It goes on dull when it is wet, but soon as it dries it is SUPER sparkly and ever so pretty. We wanted our ghost to SHINE like the top of the Chrysler Building  (gotta love Annie). We put on 2-3 more coats.

Using our blow dryer again– dried our shirt.  We put Orange FolkArt paint on our plate and using the back of our brush, we dipped the end in the orange paint.

We added our eyes and ghost mouth.  Very simple. Dip and dot 🙂

DRIED our shirt again…

My daughter wanted to make sure her ghost was a “GIRL” ghost, I took some ribbon and made a loop and using my white thread to wrap it in the middle formed a bow.

Did a simple hand stitch and sewed on the bow in the ghost “hairline”

Looks like a GIRL GHOST to me! 🙂  (see all the pretty silver glitter?)

She is SO SO SO proud to wear her ghost shirt. She wore it already today to back to school open house. Never to early in MY book to start celebrating Halloween!

Now on to the good stuff (well the Ghost shirt is pretty cool too)

    If I won this prize, I’d definitely make the ghost shirt with my son. We’d also try making a handprint dinosaur shirt for him, too 🙂 Heck, I’d even try making shirts for myself, too; although it’d be one heck of a big ghost on my shirt (size 9 1/2 shoe here) – LOL!!!

    I would adore these paints! I’ve heard great things about them, but never tried them.

    I found some things I would love to use these on: Little animal and bear shaped banks, small clay pots and even wooden bird houses and wooden trays.

    Now I see these work well even on t-shirts! Oh that just adds to my ideas! LOL

    Thank you so much for a chance at this giveaway! So kind of you and that shirt you made with your daughter is very cute and creative!
