With Halloween around the corner, who has time for a complicated DIY costume? Instead, you can make a simple ice cream t-shirt with a cute cherry headband using a rainbow of Tulip Dimensional Paint colors. Pair the shirt with jeans, a skirt or even slacks to create a cute ice cream Halloween costume that looks more complicated than it really is, and it’s appropriate for just about any Halloween occasion!
• White t-shirt
• Aleene's Fabric Glue
• Brown Tulip Dimensional Paint
• Rainbow colors of Tulip Dimensional Paint
• Foam paintbrush
• 4-inch red honeycomb ball
• Gold or brown pipe cleaner
Step 1: Place the cardboard inside the t-shirt in order to prevent paint from seeping through to the other side and lay on a flat surface.
Step 2: Use the brown paint to trace the outline of dripping chocolate along the bust of the shirt. You can go up the sleeves or leave as is.
Step 3: Fill in the outlined area with more brown paint, spreading with the foam brush. It doesn't require much paint to saturate the fabric. Once completely painted, let aside to dry for about 2-3 hours or overnight.
Step 4: Once dry, paint 1-inch lines in various colors to create the look of sprinkles. Set aside to dry for 2-3 hours or overnight.
Step 5: To make the cherry, wrap the pipe cleaner around one of the paint bottle to create a spiral.
Step 6: Assemble the honeycomb ball. Wrap the string around the headband off to one side (not the middle) and apply glue to the honeycomb to secure it to the headband, where it meets the wrapped string.
