Pre-wash and dry the T-shirt, then draw a spiderweb on the shirt using the disappearing ink pen. The disappearing ink pen marks will go away on their own in 12 to 24 hours, depending on the brand.


Add puffy paint

Once the puffy paint has dried, paint your child's fingers and palms with the black fabric paint, but leave the thumbs unpainted. Make two hand prints on the shirt with the fingers facing outward.
