I had a 10 inch wide by 48 inch long strip of knit material left over from the bottom the polka dot shirt I did HERE a couple of weeks ago and I have been waiting for just the right project to use it. Well with Fall nipping at my heels a skull scarf seemed like the perfect remedy for my quandary.
All of this was possible thanks to Ilovetocreate.com,

Things you need.
- Knit material *the bottom of a large shirt works great. Dimensions:10 inches wide by 48 inches long.
- Small paint brush
- Fabric Tulip Paint HERE
- Skull Inspiration
- Tulip sponge HERE
If your piece is a tube, cut one side open to make one long piece.
Cut the hem off
I am saving the hem piece to make something else with it.
Now on each end cut small slits about 4 inches.
then stretch them out,
I used the tulip sponge to make dots all over the scarf.
Then I painted a rectangle on the bottom of each circle, to make the skull shape.
I then used a small brush and with the black tulip paint I painted two eyes and a mouth.
Let all of that dry about 4 hours.
Hello new skull scarf.
I think this would look great on a shirt as well.
I hope you had a fab Monday,
mine was wonderful.
Lots of <3,
