Spooky Spider Shirt DIY

 I was experimenting with some plastic spiders the other day.
I really wanted to use them as a stencil for a spider shirt.
Here is how it turned out.
 Things you Need
  1. Shirt
  2. Scissors
  3. Tulip Spray Paint
  4. Plastic Spiders
  5. Bead in a bottle *Optional
  6. Arleen's Tacky Glue
 Cut the collar off
 Spray the back of your spiders with glue.
* you might want to wear gloves because the glue got all over my hands.

 Stick to your shirt.
 Spray over top with Tulip Spray paint.
 let dry about 30 min and peel the spiders off.
If you wanted to accent the spider eyes with glitter paint I think that would look really good.
 Very subtle  spiders crawling up your shirt.

Great for a last minute spider costume for Halloween.
Happy Tuesday!

Want a touch of Scary Sparkle for Halloween?
I made these Spider pins last year and everyone wanted one, so I made some more this year.

Things you need
  1. Spiders *Michaels
  2. Glue (Mod Podge or clear nail polish) * Wal-mart, Michaels
  3. Glitter (I used super fine glitter from Martha Stewart) *Michaels, Wal-mart
  4. Brush
  5. Pin Backs *Wal-mart, Michaels
  6. Glue Gun *Wal-mart

 coat with glue
 cover with glitter top and underneath,
let it dry about 2 hours then  Repeat
Once they are all dry, coat with on final coat of glue to seal in the glitter.

Turn the  spider upside down and fill the belly with hot glue,
carefully place your pin back on the glue hold for about 20-30 seconds until it sets up.
* Make sure the you place the pin as seen in the picture, it is easier to open and close.
 You could make any color you want.
Scary Sparkle!

Men's Shirt Re-Style

My husband had a shirt that he did not like, so I re styled it for me.
 Things you need
  1. Old men's shirt
  2. Scissors
  3. Chalk
  4. Chain (I used 14 inches)
  5. Sewing machine
  6. Pliers
  7. Needle and thread

 Turn your shirt inside out and lay it flat.
 Take a shirt you already have that fits you perfect and lay that on top of your shirt.
This will be your pattern.
Trace around it.
 mark with chalk where you traced.
 Pin your shirt.
* I would carefully  try on your shirt at this point to make sure that it will fit the way you want.
 Using your sewing machine sew where you placed your pins.
 Trim the excess
 I marked my shirt around the seams. 
*You do not want to make this to be to big or it will show body parts you may not want to be seen.
 cut the marked place out
 Fold down the bottom flap and sew this as well. 
Repeat on the other side.
 I marked and measured 7 inches of chain and attached it to my shoulder buckle 
(* If you do not have a buckle on your shirt, you could use a pretty ribbon 
or a smaller chain and just hand sew it to the shoulder.)
 Using my needle and thread I attached the other end of the chain to the shirt 
right at the end of the pocket. The pocket was a guide so that both sides would be even. 
I also let the rest of the chain just hang loose.

 Now you have a re-styled,  kind of edgy shirt. 
That shows just a touch of skin.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

DIY Fringe Necklace.


Things you need
  1. Chain- I used a small chain (different kinds for variations)* Wal-Mart, Michaels
  2. Clasp * Wal-Mart, Michaels
  3. Small Jump rings ( about 30)* Wal-Mart, Michaels
  4. Medium jump rings (3)* Wal-Mart, Michaels
  5. Head pins (about  12)* Wal-Mart, Michaels
  6. Pliers* Wal-Mart, Michaels
  7. Silver Spacer beads (about 12)* Wal-Mart, Michaels
  8. Small charm or bead * Wal-Mart, Michaels

 Measure your chain about 14 inches.
Measure your chain fringe.
I used about thirty pieces of chain mostly scrap pieces I had no use for .
I had my longest chain at 4 inches,
 I made all the other pieces of chain gradually shorter from the middle out to the end.
  using your pliers, add your two medium jump rings to the ends of your chain 
and the the clasp to one side.

Add your small jump rings to your chain fringe, then
 start building your necklace the longest pieces in the middle
 and working your way to the shortest pieces at the end.

 build it to the look you want.

On the ends of some of the chain I placed a small silver spacer bead for texture.

I placed my head pins through the beads
Using my pliers I cut off the end.
 With my pliers I made a small circle.
I added them to the end of some of the chain.

on the back of the necklace add another piece of chain about 1 1/2 inches long 
then add a charm on the end of it.

Now I am going to go make a bracelet to match.
Have a beautiful day.
