DIY Halloween Costume: Scary Skull Shirt

Halloween has always been one of those holidays that sneaks up on me. I always find myself running around at the last minute to find something Halloween-appropriate to wear. To me, skulls are the epitome of Halloween—spooky and creepy. I created a quick and easy skull top that takes about a half hour and only $10 to create. If you’re like me and in need of a last-minute Halloween party costume, this is the perfect DIY for you. Find out how to create this spooky skull T-shirt below. 

This past summer cutout shirts and dresses were everywhere. This DIY is on trend and perfect, not only for Halloween, but for a night out on the town long after Halloween has passed. It’s a bit of edge even the girliest of girls can wear! A hint of sexiness with a peek-a-boo back paired with a stiletto and your trusted black skinnies, this is the easiest outfit you’ll wear this week.


Time: 15-30 Minutes


  1. Trace out your pattern on the back of your shirt. If you're using a Sharpie, make sure to place a piece of newspaper or cardboard between the layers of the shirt so the ink doesn’t bleed through to the table.
  2. Cut out the pattern with a pair of scissors.
  3. Stretch out the connecting fabric (eyes/teeth).
  4. Wear!

Have fun looking spooktacular this Halloween!
