Cutest Pumpkin DIY Onesie

10Recently, a friend of mine gave me a box of baby clothes but it was taped so I had no idea what was inside of it. You should have seen my face when I discovered tons of new, white onesies because all I could think of was ideas to make them super cute for Evelynne. Now, I know that Evelynne won’t (or shouldn’t) be here in time to wear this for Halloween but I do have some friends with babies that I can give this as a gift.

If you have a baby they will look adorable in a onesie that Mommy or Daddy made. Or if you know someone that is having a baby in time for Halloween this will be a super cute idea to give as a gift.

What do you need? Super simple and easy supply list….

A onesie or t-shirt in the size you desire, sharpie markers in orange, green and brown, a piece of card and if you have clips they will help keep the onesie in place. Oh and don’t forget to print out the pumpkin stencil in this post.


Step 1: Put the cardboard inside the onesie to help catch the marker bleeds, pull the cloth tight and clip (if you have clips). The tighter the onesie, the easier the markers will glide and less bleeding.

Step 2: Trace the Pumpkin Stencil with Pencil. This can seem difficult because of the grooves of the onesie but keep at it because it makes life easier to get your stencil down in pencil first.

Step 3: Outline your pumpkin in brown and orange

Step 4: Make your Pumpkin how you want. For my onesie, I used brown dots then colored the pumpkin in with orange lines and then added my words which I did free hand. You can use fabric paint or sequins to flash it up.
