Everywhere I turn this year, it’s all about the candy corn! People either love it or they hate it. I made these silly candy corn emoji tees with HP Iron-On Transfers to help my kids express their candy corn obsession. Also, they’re pretty funny!

The beauty of HP Iron-on Transfer Paper is that you can print any image onto it and then iron the image on to shirts, tote bags, and more. It’s such an easy way to DIY an image, I kind of feel like I am cheating!

My kids got a kick out of these tee shirts and I hope you will too. Have a good laugh and then gobble up a bunch more candy corn. Because, you know, it’s not that good but strangely addicting.

You can even embellish the iron-on transfer, once applied. I added puffy paint but you can glue on googly eyes or crystals, add glitter paint, and even stitch over it.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this project:
