Make the Summer Heat a little more bearable with this Cricut Iron-On Vinyl Succulent T-shirt! It’s so easy to make with your Cricut EasyPress!
I wasn’t going to make a t-shirt when I had my party all set up, but I wanted my daughter in the photos and she had this blank T-shirt from Target, so I figured, Why not? This Succulent tee shirt took just a few minutes to create with Cricut Iron-On Vinyl and the EasyPress!
Cute Succulent SVG Files
I created this tee from graphics from my Potted Cacti and Succulents SVG Bundle…and I’m happy to say this is my daughter’s favorite tee I’ve made for her!
You can use any of these succulents with this Cricut iron-on vinyl tutorial. I used one of the shorter ones so I had room for the text.
Cricut Iron-On Vinyl
There are plenty of options for HTV and Iron-On. I’m partial to Cricut Iron-On Vinyl because of it’s durability, but also because they make it so easy to reference all the materials.
You can find my Cricut EasyPress 2 Guide – and it also includes some frequently asked questions.
But basically, if you use Cricut Iron-On Vinyl and the EasyPress 2 guide according to instructions, you get a money back guarantee.
Glitter Iron-On is my favorite because it’s extremely durable (my daughter has worn out the shirts and the iron-on is still holding strong), it’s pretty, and it’s the easiest iron-on to use.
If you want something different, check out Cricut’s Infusible Ink Line – you can still use it to make tees, but it’s a completely different style.

- Place the Cricut EasyPress on the front of the t-shirt for a few seconds, then center your design on the tee.
- Firmly hold the EasyPress on the design for 30 seconds. If it doesn’t cover the whole design, move to the other parts of the design and hold again for another 30 seconds.
- Turn the tee over and heat up the back of the design for about 10 seconds, then remove the vinyl while it’s still hot.
