Turn thrift store clothes into the most frightful attire for the midnight ball! We will demonstrate turning a man's jacket into a tattered triumph and a young woman’s dress into a dreadful dream! This is a super simple technique with grave-tastic results! Tools & materials used for this project: man’s suit jacket, sleeveless dress, utility knife, sponge, black, white, & brown craft paints, torn & dyed cheesecloth, scrap lace, ribbon, and trims, needle and thread, straight pins, & faux plants (small stems or leaves). We made costumes for the whole family using these methods and they looked so decrepit (in the best possible way) for photos and film!
