Totally 80' Girl

Ready to go birdwatching with dad? You'll need a crafty pair of binoculars to point out all those feathered beauties!

Supplies

  • T-shirt

  • Old ties

  • Bright-colored tights

  • Tennis shoes

  • Fabric Paint

Directions

  • Lay your white t-shirt onto a flat surface. V-neck or tank top t-shirts work best.

  • Let the shirt dry overnight.

  • This t-shirt works as a dress for a young girl. Cinch at the waist with an old tie.

  • Add cool-colored tights and tennis shoes and you're ready for a rockin' retro Halloween!

Complete Your '80s Look

Pile on the jewelry. Lots of bracelets are key. Tease up the hair and add a big bow. I bet there are moms and dads out there with some '80s yearbooks that can be used as inspiration!
