I made this DIY Halloween t-shirt for my daughter to rock her spooky spirit in the days leading up to her first costume!
I used my Silhouette machine cutter to cut the ghost face out of vinyl and then ironed it onto this blank white tee from Hobby Lobby. (Psst... their infant wearable art tees are under $4!)
The project took me about 15 minutes total, thanks to my trusty Silhouette Cameo machine cutter!
I'm offering free Halloween SVG files below for a friendly ghost face and a classic Jack o'lantern smile.
Next year I want to make my own "momster" graphic!

WHAT you need for a DIY halloween t-shirt
Here's what I used to create this Halloween tee:
- Grab the free SVG files in the form below and save them to your computer.
- Import the file into your Silhouette Design Studio or similar.
- In the design tab, drag the corner of the file to resize to the appropriate width and height for your t-shirt. Mine was about 6" across for an infant tee (12-18 month size).
- I always choose the "mirror design" option with heat transfer vinyl so that it doesn't come out backward when I iron it onto the tee.
- Once you size it appropriately, send it to your machine to cut with all the appropriate cut settings (depending on your machine).
- Peel back the unwanted vinyl so only the face remains. This tool helps.
- Lay your t-shirt on a flat surface. I like to put a towel underneath it.
- Check the heat setting for the vinyl you're using and set your iron accordingly.
- Position your design directly on the tee.
- I place parchment paper in between the vinyl and the iron.
- Do not iron the design on like you would a shirt, but instead press the iron down firmly onto all areas of the design for 15 seconds at a time until all areas of the vinyl transfer securely onto the tee.
- Wash in cold water and air dry.
