This post should come as no surprise. We’ve been having so much fun making eraser-stamped shirts for every holiday, and you all seem to like them too. So far we’ve covered St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and 4th of July. I went with something a little different this time, and made two different sizes of bats instead of one. I love how it turned out! Also check out my other post on Halloween Crafts for Kindergartners!
Audrey loves it too!
To make this shire, you’ll need:
- bat patterns
- a shirt
- Freezer Paper (I got mine at the grocery store)
- fabric paint
- pencil with an unused eraser
Trace both bat patterns onto the NON-shiny side of freezer paper.
Cut out the shapes.
Put the bats on the shirt, shiny side down, and iron them on.
Dip your eraser in some paint and stamp around the bats. Put another piece of freezer paper inside of the shirt to keep the paint from bleeding through.
I like to have the dots closer together around the bats, and then fade them out.
Let the paint dry, and then peel off the freezer paper. Heat set the paint by ironing or throwing it in the dryer.
And you’re done!

I LOVE this craft! Plus the fact that you showed how it would look on a bag? That would be awesome to do for TOTers!! One question, though: how long does it take for the paint to dry? Can this be done and DRIED after 30 minutes? I would like to offer this as a mini class to the kids at my school!

I think it would probably take longer than that to dry, especially with little kids doing it that like to glob on the paint. Haha!

Nice craft! And so doable for every Holiday/Birthday/events etc.
What kind of paint do you use?

I like to use Tulip matte fabric paint. Any kind of fabric paint should work. Just make sure it's not the dimensional fabric paint that we all liked to use in the 90s. :)
