Make your own Pumpkin Iron-On Vinyl Shirt that is perfect for Halloween and the month of October!
Hello there! This is Katie from Purely Katie where I create easy and inexpensive crafts, diys, recipes, and health and beauty products. Today, I am excited to share a super fun and easy pumpkin iron-on vinyl shirt. I made this shirt for my daughter to wear to school on Halloween because her school does not allow them to wear costumes. She loves all things glittery and I used a pretty orange glitter vinyl that really pops on a plain black shirt. You just need a few items to make your own pumpkin shirt to wear this season.
How To Make A Pumpkin Iron-On Vinyl Shirt
- Plain Black Shirt
- Orange Glitter Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Silhouette Cameo
- Pumpkin Design Image
I started by purchasing and downloading the Design ID #14077 Pumpkin image from the Silhouette Design Store.
I sized the pumpkin image to 7 inches to fit on the shirt for my daughter. Then I sent the image to my Silhouette Cameo to cut the vinyl.
When you set the Cameo to cut vinyl I recommend the blade be set at 3 and the speed at 5. I set the blade at 3 because this vinyl is thicker than normal. I choose a orange glitter heat transfer vinyl but there is also a pretty copper foil vinyl that would be fabulous to use too.
*I used a Silhouette Cameo machine but used a Cricut Mat to cut the vinyl on because that was the mat I had on hand. The Cricut mat will work with the Silhouette.
Once the vinyl was cut, I used a weeding tool to weed the negative space of the vinyl image. I usually start with the outer edges first by peeling away at the corner and working my way around the design. It’s super easy!
Wash, dry, and iron the shirt first before placing the vinyl. Place the vinyl shiny side up with the transfer paper on top. Place a towel over the vinyl and hold the iron over it for about 20 seconds, making sure to apply pressure over the entire design. Remove the towel and transfer sheet. To take care of the shirt, wash inside out on the light setting in cold water.
