DIY Pumpkin T-Shirt Embellishment

This cool DIY Pumpkin T-Shirt is another 15 minute clothes revamp using my Cricut Explore

Cricut Explore Pumpkin Tshirt

I used a cheap supermarket t-shirt (ASDA), a Teresa Collins – Chic and Scary cartridge (#M2E64F) and some Gold Iron On Vinyl.

It’s as simple as

  • Opening Cricut Design Space
  • Setting a blank canvas
  • Measuring the width of your top
  • Choosing your pumpkin image
  • Sizing the image to fit top (I did a width of 11.5″)
  • Watching the Explore Cricut cut out the pumpkin shape
  • Ironing the vinyl in place

I decided to iron the finished pumpkin cut out on to the back of this simple black long sleeved t-shirt but rather than in the middle I chose the bottom as she generally wears her hair down (and unbrushed!)

Halloween is all about surprises and I love that she appears to be wearing a plain ordinary long sleeved t-shirt until you see the cheeky sparkly image as she’s walking or running away.

Perfect Halloween fun and a cool seasonal pumkin t-shirt to wear.

    Brilliant post!. Such a fab way to add that bit of halloween to a top!. The results are lovely.

  2. That is fantastic, I love that this is a cute design for Halloween, but not too gimmicky or childish.


  3. What a great idea, I didn’t know those machines could do things like that and a great and very different top for halloween

  4. Unbrushed or not, that’s lovely shiny hair! This is a great idea.. I might adapt it for a birthday present for hubs, who was born on Halloween.

    great ideas, I like simple solutions!

  12. What a brilliant idea, perfect for adding just a little bit of halloween magic to your outfit 🙂

  13. I didn’t know you could get iron on vinyl to cut out yourself. I don’t have a cricut, so would have to use scissors, but it sounds fun!

  14. I keep on hearing about Cricuts! Must get my hands on one. This is a great project.
