Seashell png silhouette for Last minute Mermaid shirt costume diy!

Step 1: Cut Iron-On


Begin by uploading the seashell png above into Cricut Design Space, or searching for your own seashell pattern.


Then scale them to fit the desired shirt. I did mine 4 inches wide after a quick breast measurement. 


Place the iron-on vinyl on the strong grip mat with the shiny, colorful side face down. Then cut out 2 of the seashells.

Step 2: Weed the Iron-on


Remove the iron-on from the mat and cut around the seashells. Then use the Cricut hook tool to remove the excess iron-on.

Step 3: Ironing on the Shells


Now put the shirt on and use a piece of chalk or a pin to mark where you want the shells to sit. They must not be too high, or too low, for obvious reasons! 


Then take the shirt off and place it on the EasyPress Mat. 


Set the iron-on shells on top and iron for 30 seconds at 330*.

Then take the shirt off and place it on the EasyPress Mat.     Set the iron-on shells on top and iron for 30 seconds at 330*.

Let the iron-on cool down completely before removing the plastic carrier sheet. Then peel it off slowly and make sure the iron-on is secure. If not, press it again.

That's it! 

Fluff up the shirt in a dryer for a few minutes to remove any of the iron crease marks and it's ready to wear. 


It is so hard to photograph the shimmery shiny effect of the holographic iron-on. It is iridescent and changes color in different lights. 


It also reflects back a lot of shine! It draws attention to the chest in a really fun and playful...yet modest way!

Then accessorize as much as you want! Add flower or a flower crown to your hair...add a big statement necklace...or seashells! 


This costume can be adapted for any age or gender! Maybe a Mermaid Man or Barnacle Boy? Maybe a Manta Man? Aqua Man? 


I love how it turned out--and I'm excited to wear it year round!
