It’s that time of year again…Fall. Time to get out all of those fun Halloween decorations and clothes. I’m back today with a fun vinyl Halloween shirt. I hope you enjoy this heat transfer vinyl project as much as I enjoyed making it. Now I’m ready to wear my new Halloween shirt now!
Today our Cricut group is sharing Fall Crafts, be sure to see all of them listed at the bottom of the post.
Halloween T-Shirt Vinyl Idea
Fun Halloween T-Shirt idea using heat transfer vinyl and Cricut. I have included affiliate links for the items used.
Decide on a phrase or design...Don't make me drop a house on you, with witch legs and shoes.
You are ready to cut your design with your Cricut Explore Air 2 now, or whichever vinyl cutting machine you have. Make sure you have your machine set on mirror image when you are using heat transfer vinyl.
Load your cutting mat into your machine with you HTV facing down on the mat.
Cut your design.
After cutting your design remove your vinyl from you cutting mat.
Trim around your design/quote using your scissors.
Now that you have trimmed the design, use your weeding tool to remove all the excess vinyl, only leaving behind the design you are ironing on to your t-shirt.
Get your heat press or iron out and heat to desired setting. I use a heat press, the htv will have instructions for what temperature you need to heat your press to for different types of vinyl. If you are using an iron, heat it to the cotton/linen setting. I like to let mine heat up while I'm deciding on the placement of the design.
You are now ready to place your design on your shirt. I don't use any special measurements. I just eyeball it. I put it where I think it looks good and get it as straight as possible.
When you have your design in the desired placement, place a sheet of teflon on top of it.
Now you are ready to press the design in place.
Remove the teflon from your shirt.
After your project has cooled to touch, you can remove the carrier sheet from you HTV.

I hope this Halloween t-shirt vinyl idea has inspired you to get creative and have some fun making a new project! This is perfect to wear when you take the kids door to door on Halloween or depending on your office, I could see it being a very helpful piece of wardrobe on just about any day at work 😉
