Have you watched the new Disney Artemis Fowl movie? It is available at Disney+ right now! The kids and I were able to enjoy a family movie night on Friday to watch it. There have been mixed reviews but my kids really enjoyed it. I think this will definitely make my son read the books! This Artemis Fowl inspired kids t-shirt DIY is perfect for kids of all ages.
About Artemis Fowl
Disney’s “Artemis Fowl,” based on the beloved book by Eoin Colfer, is a fantastical, spellbinding adventure that follows the journey of 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he desperately tries to save his father who has been kidnapped. In order to pay his ransom, Artemis must infiltrate an ancient, underground civilization—the amazingly advanced world of fairies—and bring the kidnapper the Aculos, the fairies’ most powerful and coveted magical device. To locate the elusive object, cunning Artemis concocts a dangerous plan—so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies.
Artemis Fowl Inspired Kids T-Shirt DIY
- Cricut Joy or any Cricut machine
- Cricut Smart Iron-On (No cutting mat needed!)
- Holographic Iron-On
- Cricut Joy StandardGrip Mat, 4.5″ x 12″
- Weeding tools
- Cricut EasyPress 2
- Cricut EasyPress Mat
- Kids t-shirt (something similar to this)
- Find the project on Cricut Design Space
Open the project on Cricut Design Space (I have it all set-up for you!). You can either customize it if you need to re-size it or add something else. You can just “Make it” if you want to keep it as I have it. The design measures about 7.4″ across which worked perfectly for my son’s size medium t-shirt.
Since we are working with iron-on vinyl – you must mirror the image! You will have the option to click “mirror on” when you are on the cutting screen.
If you are using Cricut Joy you will need to select multiple ways to cut unless you are using the Cricut Smart Iron-on material. You can just select “without mat” if you are using the Smart Iron-on material. If you are using a different machine you can load your material to your Cricut cutting mat. Be sure to mirror and select the type of material you are using. I use holographic for the lens so I selected holographic which cut beautifully on the Cricut Joy.
Next, I loaded the Cricut Smart Iron-On vinyl without a cutting mat. I seriously love that about the Cricut Joy! It cuts the vinyl like butter! Weeding is a breeze, too.
Use your weeding tools to remove all the excess material. Begin to heat up the Easypress to 330 degrees.
The holographic material should be pressed at 330 degrees for 30 seconds with a cold peel. Peel the clear backing and layer the black vinyl on top. The black Cricut Smart Iron-on should be heated at 315 degrees for 30 seconds. Carefully remove the backing once it has cooled.
Your shirt is complete! An adorable and super easy Artemis Fowl t-shirt for your kids.
The holographic material is my favorite part! I didn’t have a silverish holographic iron-on vinyl so I picked the darker colors and I really love the different shades that reflect when the sunlight hits. It was a hit with my 11-year-old son! My daughter wants a fairy shirt so that is next on my list!
