DIY Halloween T-Shirt #BestCreationInc

A Halloween post a week 'til Halloween is the plan! Today's Halloween project is simply too easy. I am using Best Creation Inc.'s iron-on vinyl to make my Halloween t-shirt. So far I've used the same roll of orange vinyl on 1 previous project, this is my second project with plenty of vinyl left for a few more projects. The roll contains 1 sheet of 12" x 24" which is enough for my iron-on projects. Let's get started.

I purchased a black t-shirt for a few bucks, pre-washed it, with no fabric softener and then ironed it to get the wrinkles out.

I don't do a scary Halloween, so I searched for a cute image in Cricut's Design Space. I found one I owned by searching the word "boo".  I inserted the image to the canvas and resized it to fit the front of my shirt. I trimmed the iron-on vinyl and prepared to cut it.

I find it easier to work with their app and I can quickly reference the mirrored image to help weed the vinyl. I start on the outside and cut the excess as I work my way through the weeding.

I preheat the iron to the highest setting and aligned the image to the t-shirt. Working on hard surface works best when using a household iron. Cover the image with fabric, I use a pillow case, it's thick enough to protect the plastic and thin enough to heat set the iron-on. Then press firmly for 30 seconds. Carefully pull back the plastic. If needed, iron the back side of the t-shirt, but lower the iron setting to cotton or cover your shirt with a piece of fabric, in my case a pillow case, to avoid scorching.

I am so ready for Halloween! OK so it's a bit early to wear my shirt, but once September rolls in, I'm wearing my tee.

Boo, Eek Happy Haunting! Love Best Creation Inc.'s iron-on vinyl softness. Remember to turn the shirt inside out before washing. I don't use the dryer on any iron-on vinyl or silk screen clothes, DIY or store bought, I always line dry.

I hope you enjoyed my project. Enjoy the rest of your week and please visit again next week for a couple more iron-on vinyl projects.
