As Halloween approaches, our mysterious, darksome sides tend to come out and haunt us. Decorations have been up since midst September and we just can’t wait to pull off a scary costume or just a dark nail polish and all-black outfit. But who said we could only be in spirit the weekend of Halloween? Follow along with this tutorial to learn how to decorate a fun and flirty black v-neck t-shirt to turn it into a spooky, Twilight-worthy accent piece.  

Supplies:

  • White paint
  • Black T-shirt
  • 1 piece of paper
  • Paint brush
  • Cardboard

Step 1: Gather your supplies.

Step 2: Stick the piece of cardboard inside the t-shirt and flatten out the top of the t-shirt.

Step 3: Cut 16 even circles out of the piece of paper.  This will be the outline for the phases of the Moon.  Tracing a cup or a bracelet will help keep the circle consistent.

Step 4: Tape the piece of paper onto the t-shirt.  

Step 5: Start painting! Using a regular paint brush or foam paint brush will work the best to add texture to your painting.  The amount of paint in each circle should increase as you make your way towards the middle.  The full Moon should either be in the second or third row to equally transition from each moon phase.

Step 6: Let the t-shirt sit for a day and dry.  If you try to wear it right away you will most likely alter the paint on the shirt.
