Make Your Own Halloween Shirts with Cricut Iron-On
It's officially fall which means Halloween is right around the corner! My kids love Halloween and have been obsessed with llamas lately so I thought why not make them matching llama Halloween shirts?
For this project you will need:
1. Design Your Project
There are lots of design options directly in Cricut Design Space, but I made my own in Illustrator, saved it as an SVG, and brought it into Design Space. Next group your layers based on the color of iron-on you are using. My design has two layers, one orange and the black pieces will be white.
2. Cut your iron-on. Make sure the shiny side is down. Don't forget to mirror your image as well!
3. Weed your design.
4. I don't own an EasyPress (yet!) so I used a regular household iron. Make sure the basin is empty and there is no steam settings turned on. Start by warming up your shirt with the iron.
5. Place your bottom layer on the shirt. I used a thin towel over my design when ironing it on. Hold your iron for 20-30 seconds in one spot, then pick it up and do another area. After you're done with this, flip your shirt over and do the back side as well.
6. I let my design cool a little before checking to see if the iron-on has adhered. If it hasn't repeat the above step.
7. Once your first layer is done, add the second layer by repeating the same process.
8. Then you are done! I think that they turned out cute and my kids love them!
