Pac-Man Ghosts Shirt with Glow in Dark Puff Vinyl!

Pac-Man ghosts shirt!? Yesss!!!

Does it get better than that? Yesss!!!

Glow-in-the-dark...and Puff Heat Transfer Vinyl!

Learn how to make the perfect Pac-Man Ghost shirt, for comic conventions, the geek in your life or just for a fun shirt to wear during the Autumn time.

This shirt checks all the boxes.

Say hello to WALAKut Glow Puff HTV!

It's the best heat transfer vinyl!

It adheres at a low temperature in just seconds. 

It has a cool "puffed up" textures.

And, this fabulous HTV glows in the dark.

They come in a variety of colors and effects--I picked three for this shirt and it used barely any of my sheet of HTV, so there's more projects coming!

Supplies Needed for Pac-Man Ghost Shirt:

Step 1: Cut HTV

Begin by opening up the Cricut Design Space file.

Each ghost is a different color.

You could add another ghost or 2 if you want to...or if you buy more varieties of the glow-in-the-dark HTV.

Reverse the image (I didn't and it still worked great) and send it to the Cricut for cutting.

Place the HTV on the cutting mat with the plastic side on the sticky surface of the mat.

Cut each ghost out of all the different colors of heat transfer vinyl.

Step 2: Trim and Weed HTV

Now cut around the ghost cut outs and weed the heat transfer vinyl on each of the ghosts.

The ghosts are the old school pixelated 8-bit ghosts.

I love the sideways eyes and pointy edges. 

All the gamer nostalgia is here, who do you know that needs this shirt?

Weeding this WALAKut Glow Puff HTV is a dream come true!

It's so smooth and peels off easily and effortlessly. It's a joy to weed, unlike glitter vinyl.

No risk of tearing and the Cricut did a perfect clean cut through it using standard iron-on vinyl settings.

Step 3: Heat Press

Set your shirt, trick-or-treat bag, tote, pillowcase or whatever on the heat mat.

Then warm up the fabric with a heat press. 

I am using my Cricut EasyPress 2 in the large 12x10 size.

After the shirt is warm, place the ghosts on the shirt in the desired place. I'm tacking them in place with a little heat resistant tape.

I typically go 2-3 inches down from the collar, depending on the size of the shirt.

Then cover the ghosts with a heat shield, like parchment paper or butcher paper, a teflon sheet or protective cover and press.

Press the Puff vinyl at 265* for only 10 seconds.

I couldn't believe that 10 seconds was enough, so I set mine to 15, but 10 is enough for the perfect adhesion.

Remove the heat press, the cover sheet and peel off the clear plastic carrier sheet from the puff vinyl while it's still hot.

That will reveal the puffiness of the vinyl!

I've hear that covering with teflon and pressing again does some pretty fun things, but I haven't tried that yet.

I love how these little ghosts turned out!

Then turn off the lights and watch them glow!

I love that they are all different colors in the daylight and different colors in the dark!

This WALAKut Glow Puff HTV is simply the best!

So many fun ideas for using this glow-in-the-dark heat transfer vinyl!

Take a second and really zoom in on these pictures.

You'll see the puff vinyl texture.

It's soft to the touch, but not soft like flocked. 

I'll be using this again for sure!

That's it!

If you haven't given Puff HTV a try, it's totally worth it!

If you haven't given Glow-in-the-Dark heat transfer vinyl a try, it's totally worth it!

And if you haven't given  WALAKut Glow Puff HTV a try, it's a must!

I'm super stoked about it.
