DIY: Make a skull shirt for Halloween

This story was originally published on October 4, 2012.

This DIY skull shirt is a fast and easy project that's perfect for getting into the Halloween spirit. There are lots of instructional videos online for this project, so search "skull shirt DIY" if you'd like more help. You will need a loose T-shirt in a solid color, dark or white, a marking pencil (dressmaker's or regular chalk works well on the dark fabric) and a pair of scissors.

Using a marking pencil, draw the skull outline on the back of your T-shirt. It may help to sketch the design on paper first.

Cut out the skull pattern that you drew. A sharp pair of fabric scissors will make this step much easier. Leave a strip of fabric from the top to the bottom of the eye sockets, to help them retain their shape.

Pull on the eyes, nose and mouth holes to stretch them out and cause the edges to roll inside. (You can roll the cut edges between the palms of your hands, too.) If you like, you can transform your tee into a tank top by chopping off the sleeves and collar. Layer over a white or contrasting shirt or camisole.
