DIY Fun Thanksgiving Shirt . . . for UNDER $5!

I love shopping for clothes for my son. No, I LOVE it. There’s just something about itty bitty clothes that looks like miniature adults clothes. Seriously, my son is a better dressed than I am! But all that nice clothes cost a pretty penny.

So I wanted to buy Hudson a cute thanksgiving shirt, but decided to make one instead! And it cost less than $5!

Here’s what you’ll need:

T-shirt (either one from your kid’s closet or a new one! You can find a plain t-shirt for as little as $3!)

-Iron on transfer paper (I suggest using dark transfer whether you are using a dark or light shirt. It gives your image a white background and just produces a clearer image)

** You can find it on sale here at Amazon – works out to under $2/shirt. Or $1/shirt if you print 2 images on one page!

-Printer and Ink




This is SUPER simple.

  1. Download the image below.
  2. Follow the instructions on the iron on transfer paper packaging. (Make sure to cut around the image to get rid of as much of the paper as possible.)
  3. Tackle your kid and pull the shirt over their head. TADA!

Now go and make your little one a killer thanksgiving shirt, and save yourself some $$!
