As I might have mentioned before, Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday! And with this being Squishy’s first Halloween, I’m double excited!
We spent this morning driving all over town for supplies, but after Kroger, Hobby Lobby, and THREE trips to Walmart we finally got everything we needed.
We did two crafts today: Halloween “bum”kin painting and Night Before Christmas onesies.
- Orange non-toxic paint
- Green and brown acrylic paint
- Paint brush
- Baby butt
Now if your little one can’t roll over yet, this is super easy. Just paint their butt with the orange paint, and stamp it on the canvas! While the process is the same no matter what age, I suggest putting a towel underneath your little one while you apply the paint if they can roll over! I just used a plain permanent marker to write the date at the bottom. Use the green and brown paint to add the stem and vines!
- White onesies
- Soft black fabric paint
- Stencil (I used a pumpkin stencil I printed out here and here)
- Scissors and sharp knife
- Sponge brush
To cut out the stencils you’re going to need a really sharp knife to get all the little details! I used Blair’s pocket knife, but an X-acto knife would be perfect!
Make sure you put something in between the front and back of the onesie so the paint doesn’t seep through. Then just lay your stencil on the onesie, use the sponge brush to dab the paint all over, and lift the stencil!
