I can’t believe Halloween is only a week away! I haven’t had a chance to watch my favorite Halloween movie, Hocus Pocus, but I did buy it so this year I don’t have to scour the TV to find when it’s playing. Since we are first time homeowners, this will be our first year to pass out candy to trick-or-treaters. I’m still not sure what costume to wear on Halloween, but I wanted something festive to wear around the holiday. Since I couldn’t bring myself to pay 25+ dollars for a t-shirt, I came up with a way to make my own DIY Halloween t-shirt using a Target tee and a sharpie! Yes, just a simple sharpie. You could probably pull this project together with things you already have in your closet.
How To Make a DIY Halloween T-Shirt
Since I couldn’t bring myself to pay 25+ dollars for a t-shirt, I came up with a way to make my own DIY Halloween t-shirt using a Target tee and a sharpie! Yes, just a simple sharpie. You could probably pull this project together with things you already have in your closet.
For this DIY Halloween t-shirt, I came up the phrase I wanted, typed it up with a simple font in Microsoft Word, then printed it off on a standard size paper. (Click HERE for a printable version of mine.) I then put the page between the shirt so I could trace it. You may want to hold the page up to your chest first to get an idea of the placement. The best way I found to keep the lines straight is to make dots on each of the corners and then play connect the dots! Once you have the dots marked out, you can stretch the fabric with your fingers and fill in the lines.
Do you celebrate Halloween as an adult? Do you dress up at all? Let me know what your plans are and how you celebrate.

I love this idea! Not only does it work for a Halloween DIY shirt, but it could work on any type of wording! Thanks for sharing, Amber!
