DIY Halloween T-Shirt with Ghost Elbow Patches

Hi, Friends! Thanks for all of your sweet and encouraging comments on my One Room Challenge post last week! Making over this game room has me crazy busy! Taking on such a short term project is SO fun, but it’s not for the faint of heart for sure. Still, I’m not too busy to slide in a quick Silhouette Halloween craft with this fun Halloween t-shirt idea, and I hope you like it! Thank you to Cat from Pocketful of Posies for organizing this monthly challenge! This ghostly garment was a request of my tweenager – something she saw on Pinterest – you’re never too old for Halloween, and I’m always up for recreating a Pinterest creation!   

It’s been mostly about Fall decor around here, but we’ve managed to slide just the teeniest bit of Halloween decorating in. With our annual Halloween party coming up I’d better get cracking on changing that! Just because the house isn’t looking too Halloween-y, doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t and this cute tee makes it so easy to do so!  

I started with an inexpensive solid black $8 shirt from Walmart and used printable iron-on vinyl for dark fabric for the ghosty, which was already white. 

The ghost graphic came from Silhouette and was $.79 once I applied the current Halloween discount of 25% off!

After importing it into my project, it was relatively straightforward and just required cutting.

Once cut, I peeled the vinyl from the backing and applied it to the shirt. 

I covered the iron-on with parchment and an ironing cloth and used a hot iron (set to cotton without steam) to adhere the ghost. Be careful not to scorch the vinyl! 

And that is all there is to it. One point for mom! 

Be sure to stop by and visit the other Fall-o-ween projects from my friends!
