Sugar Skull Tee-DIY

 Crafty Chica, Kathy Cano-Murillo has a new line of Day of the Dead crafting amazingness!

When I saw this iron on Skull applique I had to make a Shirt. Not only does Kathy designs her own craft  line, she runs a Blog a Youtube channel and is a full time Mother and Wife. She is an inspiration to everyone around her.  FYI, it's available at select Michaels stores and will also be able to order online through and

Things you need

Wash and dry your shirt.
I cut the collar off of my shirt but you could leave it on if you want.
Place your shirt on a hard surface then place a piece of cardboard in between your shirt.
Lay your skull applique down, plastic side facing up.
Place a cloth over your applique.
Iron over the applique for at least one minute.
Tip *I checked mine in the corner every so often.
I had to go over my applique a couple of times to make sure it adhered well.
 Carefully peel off the plastic.

 Now let's make him sparkle.
The best part is you could use your imagination,
color him anyway you want.
 I placed Tulip Glitter Glue in different places 
then sprinkled it with different colored Tulip Glitter
 One color at a time and I waited about 10 min between each color
 before I shook the glitter off

 More Glue and More Glitter.
 Let it dry for about an hour or so to let the glitter set up.
 Now let's add a few sequins.
Take you fabric fusion quick dry glue and place a small amount on the back side of a sequin and place them on the eyes, teeth,on the heart. 
Put them wherever you want.

 These Fabric markers by the Crafty Chica are so vivid and so easy to work with, I love them.
I used them to add different colors where I did not want glitter.

  Let your new creation dry over night then wear out and display your craftiness.

 I can promise you I will be creating more fun projects 
with Kathy's Craft line in the weeks to come.
 Lots of <3,

I loved this idea so much that I made one last night. Found shirts on clearance for $2.00 and used a coupon for the markers. My total cost was under $10.00 and it turned out AWESOME. This was the first time that I have used glitter or markers on a shirt any special instructions on washing. Don't want to ruin my amazing creation so inspired can't wait to make another design.

Thank you so much:) Wait about 3 days before you wash then wash in cold water under the gentle cycle and hang dry.
