How to Make It

  1. Download our free ghost face pattern and resize to fit the front of the shirt you will be using. Cut a rectangle of freezer paper to fit the front of the shirt.
  2. Trace the ghost face pattern onto the freezer paper with the shiny side down. Have an adult cut out the shapes with a crafts knife or scissors to create a stencil; discard the eye and mouth cutouts.
  3. Have an adult iron freezer paper onto the shirt with the shiny side down, against the fabric. (Use a dry iron setting and place the iron straight down on the cutout, rather than moving the iron around.) Check to make sure there is a good seal around the design.
  4. Protect work surface and clothing. Place a piece of cardboard inside the shirt so the paint doesn't soak through to the back of the shirt.
  5. Paint ghost face design onto the shirt using black fabric paint and a foam brush, tapping the paint on, rather than brushing. Allow to dry completely and then heat-set according the paint manufacturer's instructions.
  6. Tip: You can also trace the eyes and mouth directly onto the shirt and fill with fabric paint.
