Raise of hands, who loved Charlotte’s Web as a kid? I did! I even loved the original cartoon movie. It was one of those movies like Rikki Tikki Tavi that the teachers would show when I am guessing they needed a break from what rotten kids we were.
I always loved the movie and the end always made me sad, but I thought it would be such a fun and easy Charlotte’s Web Halloween costume for this months #MichaelsMakers challenge because you only really have to make the t shirt with the dimensional paint if you want! The rest you probably already have at home.
White t-shirt from Michaels
Black Tulip metallics dimensional paint
A table cloth from Michaels Halloween decor section
Black colored hair spray paint
black leggings we already had
First, I drew my word and web on the shirt in pencil and then marker,
knowing I was going to go over it with the dimensional paint.
I picked the word AWESOME which is not actually even in the book, but I liked it.
After I filled in the words, I let this shirt dry over night.
Then I took the table cloth which was the perfect size to cut two armholes in for a spider-webby type vest. NO sewing all of the way!
Assemble the rest, make some spider-type hair with a top ponytail and black hair spray and you are good to go!
Little modeled for me so I could show off the costume in action, showing how awesome she is.
It was perfect, because it can be really cold her on Halloween and this way I can bundle her and put the t-shirt on top of everything else.
We had some fun with the black spray paint making her top pony tail look a little like a spider.
I love this Charlotte’s web Halloween costume because it uses a lot of what we already have and since it’s a t-shirt, it’s perfect for little and big ones and not too expensive.Infact, I might wear the AWESOME shirt myself.
