This year I couldn’t resist making my kiddos a couple cute shirts to wear this Halloween! My Cricut Explore made this a quick and easy project – perfect because I have been super busy crafting for all of the weddings we are attending this fall. We have four weddings in two months – 2 down and 2 to go!
The wedding this past weekend was Harry Potter-themed (so awesome!) and I was able to help the bride and groom out by making signs for the reception. This past month has been a busy one filled with all things Harry-Potter and my craft space was turned into a sign workshop! I had a blast and can’t wait to share the finished signs with you. Once I finished my frantic sign making, I was definitely ready to jump into Halloween crafting. These shirts were my first Halloween DIY of the year and they turned out so cute!
My kids love Emojis so these cute little ghosts and pumpkins are inspired by the fun Emoji faces. I had silver Iron-On Glitter and orange Iron-On Lite and just needed to find black shirts. I found a size small short-sleeve t-shirt that fits my son at Joann Fabrics, but the shirts there didn’t run small enough for my daughter, who is in toddler sizes. After a little online searching, I found Old Navy had plain long-sleeve shirts for just $5 – perfect! This was a quick project and I’m sharing the free SVG cut files so you can create your own!
Supplies Needed for DIY Iron-On Halloween Shirts:
- Free SVG Cut Files (Located in blue at the end of this post)
- Black shirts – I found my size small t-shirt at Joann Fabrics and my toddler-sized shirt at Old Navy
- Orange Iron-On Lite for pumpkin shirt – I used Pumpkin Iron-On Lite
- Silver Iron-On Glitter for ghost shirt
- Cutting Machine and cutting tools – I used my Cricut Explore Air, Cricut weeding tool and cutting mat
Grab the free SVG cut file, located at the end of this post, and you are ready to make your own Halloween shirts! I love this quick video for instructions on using Cricut Iron-On. Make sure to set your material guide to “Iron-On” and flip your image in Cricut Design Space.
Here’s a picture of my pumpkin image cut from the orange Iron-On. I removed all of the extra heat transfer material that wasn’t part of the image using my Cricut weeding tool. It is all ready to be ironed on!
I always measure using a ruler to make sure my images will be perfectly centered.
The black long-sleeve shirt I was able to find for my daughter is perfect and she loves the glittery ghosts. I wasn’t able to capture how sparkly the ghosts are, but they really are sparkly – which works so well with the “fa-boo-lous” saying!
This pumpkin black t-shirt will look great over an orange long-sleeve shirt for my son – that is, if it ever cools off! We are definitely not used to 90-degree weather in September!
I have a few more Halloween projects I’d like to knock out before starting on Halloween costumes! Be sure to check out my past Halloween projects for some fun DIY’s to get started on now :)
