Even though dinosaurs have been extinct for 65 million years, they continue to be super popular—especially with little ones. If your kiddos are obsessed with dinosaurs, why not make their day with some cute dinosaur clothes? Our papercut dinosaur candy huggers were such a huge hit that we decided it would be fun to use them again for some DIY dinosaur T-shirts.

We made these shirts very quickly with our cutting machine and SVG file. You can do the same, or you can cut these dinosaur designs by hand with our PDF template.

T-Rexcellent Tees

These DIY dinosaur T-shirts are perfect for toddlers, pre-schoolers, and grade schoolers. You can also use the designs to create some adorable onesies for a baby. In the template below, you will see that there are a few different iron-on designs to choose from. Use them all or pick your favorites! You could even have your kiddo help with the design process.

If you want to use the same colors for your iron-on designs, you can find them all linked below in materials. We also linked the shirts we used. Both the vinyl and the T-shirts come in lots of other colors, too. This is another area where your kiddos can get involved in the creative process!

Instructions for DIY Dinosaur T-Shirts

Cut and weed out the dinosaur designs. Then follow the packaging instructions on your vinyl. We use an EasyPress but you can also use an iron to transfer the design. If you have any questions, just let us know in the comments.

Happy crafting! ~ Lia and team
