We are in the process of making our Halloween t-shirts. We do this each and every year for this holiday. We’re one of those families that loves to dress in coordinated outfits. I know, it’s kind of cheesy, but we absolutely love it! We also love making use of our heat press machine that we received a few years ago.
When we make t-shirts, we always make sure to go to our local craft store to purchase some high quality fabric that we’re going to heat transfer some vinyl onto. The vinyl that can be heat transferred is really inexpensive. so the cost is more on the fabric side of things.
Of course, in this venture the main investment was in our heat press machine. I’ll be making another post on this particular machine because I love it so much, but we bought the Powerpress Heat Press Machine. I love it!
Anyways, when we make our t-shirts, we generally do it on a Sunday when watching football. The whole process will take us around 5 hours to do; mainly because we always get so distracted because we’re having so much fun.
Last year it actually took us 8 hours! Hopefully we are well under that this year.
We’re going to be heat transferring black vinyl onto orange fabric shirts. The black vinyl is going to be cut into the shape of pumpkins. Each family member is going to be carving their own pumpkin into the vinyl. We expect that this will be the most laborious part of the endeavor. That is because the process of using a heat transfer machine is very simple that absolutely anyone can do it.
I’m really looking forward to doing this great craft with everyone. It’s something that I really look forward to each and every year!
What do you all like to do with your family for Halloween?
