Hey friends! Today I am excited to share these fun DIY Kids Thanksgiving Graphic T-Shirts that I made for my kiddos to wear this Thanksgiving! They turned out super fun and they’re pretty easy to put together! I was so excited to be invited to participate in the Fall Cricut Challenge along with some other talented bloggers! After my tutorial you’ll be able to check out their projects as well as enter to win a huge box of supplies from Cricut!! Woohoo!
But, first up, the tutorial!
To make these shirts I got some plain t-shirts from my local Target. They were just $5 each! WIN! I grabbed the boys white long sleeve shirts, because I had planned on using Black Iron-On Vinyl. For Dylan (my daughter), I grabbed a black long sleeve shirt, because I wanted to use Cricut’s Gold Glitter Iron-On!
First, I created the design in the Cricut Design Center (the design file link will be below). I made 3 designs – one for each kid!
Jeffrey: “Save a spot for me at the kids table.”
I cut the Iron-On Vinyl on my Cricut Explore Machine!
To make yours, go ahead and download the design file below and open it up in the Cricut Design Center!
You can find the Cricut Cut File for these 3 shirt designs HERE!
Once the file is open, go ahead and re-size any of the designs if needed. The size of the design will vary depending on the size of the shirt it’s going on. So, just measure the chest area on the shirt and decide how big you want to the design. Then, go back into the Design Space and resize anything that needs it. If you aren’t cutting all 3 designs, then at this point you can juste delete any of the designs you aren’t cutting.
Once your design(s) are ready, click CUT!
When cutting Iron-On Vinyl, you need to cut the file in mirror image. So, when the cut screen pops up, you’ll need to click the Mirror Image button. See image below!
If you’re cutting multiple designs, make sure you click on each cut and check the MIRROR IMAGE button. As you can see below, I’ve now clicked it on the 2nd cut.
When applying the Iron-Vinyl to the mat, prior to cutting, make sure you put the shiny side down on the mat. You do this, because you’ll be cutting in mirror image. Then go ahead and cut your design.
Once your designs are cut, go ahead and weed any of the iron-on vinyl out that you aren’t going to be applying to the shirt. I generally keep my Cricut Weeding Tool and a X-acto knife handy for this part of the project! You weed out on the matte side of the vinyl. Weeding iron-on feels a little different than it does weeding regular vinyl. The iron-on vinyl stretches more, so feel free to just pull at it and let it break and stretch. Just make sure you don’t remove any of the vinyl that you want to iron on!
Next, get your shirt and give it a rough iron. Make sure the area you plan on applying the iron-on vinyl to completely ironed.
Before applying the iron-on vinyl I like to make sure the area is warm. So, just quickly run your iron over the area RIGHT before you put your design down. Then apply your design to the shirt. This is a bit easier if you have a second person!
To apply the vinyl you will iron over the design on the plastic transfer tape applying as much pressure as you can! If using a regular plain colored iron-on vinyl you will want to put a thin rag between the iron the vinyl. However, if you’re using a thicker iron-on vinyl (like the gold sparkle vinyl) you really don’t need to.
Once I’ve heated over the entire design I like to hold the iron in place and push down as hard as possible for 5-10 seconds at a time. Almost like a heat press!
To remove the plastic transfer tape you want to pull very slowly to make sure that all areas of the iron-on vinyl transferred good. If you feel like it’s pulling on any of the iron-on vinyl, then lay the plastic transfer back down and apply more heat. When it is transferred well, the plastic should pull off pretty easily!
And that’s it! You’re done!! WOOHOO!!
I think they turned out pretty funny! Especially considering how easy they were to make!
It is ALMOST Thanksgiving time! It’s such a wonderful time! Going to the Pumpkin Patch, eating donuts and cider slushes, and preparing the Great Feast!

Each year, after Halloween, one of my favorite traditions is putting candy out for the Hungry Thanksgiving Turkey! I love Halloween, but I do not love the crazy amounts of candy that my kids collect. I try to be a nice mom and let my kids enjoy a few pieces of candy each day for about a week, but then I just can’t handle it around anymore! So, I stick to this tradition to help me get rid of most of it! I know your family will love this Hungry Thanksgiving Turkey Printable too!
Like I said before, we usually do this like a week after Halloween. That way they’ve had a week to enjoy their bag handing around and eat there favorites. Then we have the Hungry Thanksgiving Turkey stop by and leave his printable plea for candy! I’ve delivered it a few different way – on the doorstep, in the mail, door bell ditched, etc!
Then, I let them go through and choose one piece of candy per day for the rest of November. Then, all the rest of it, they give to the Hungry Thanksgiving Turkey!
I hope you guys enjoy this idea as much as I do! Have a great Thanksgiving!
