DIY Ring Bearer Shirt
For this DIY ring bearer shirt and teddy bear, you’ll need the following supplies. I used my Cricut EasyPress 2 for this project. If you don’t have one you can attempt to use a home iron but I highly suggest investing in the EasyPress 2! It saves time and money by making sure your project turns out right every time.
- Teddy Bear (I found mine at Target)
- T-shirt to fit bear (I used a blank tee from Target 12 mos size in black)
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- Cricut Iron-On Vinyl – I used white
- EasyPress 2 and EasyPress Mat

Begin by sizing your design in Design Space to the correct measurements you want for your shirt. If you are using the same size shirt that I did (12 mos) then you can leave it sized as-is. Otherwise, adjust it accordingly. Set your Cricut Explore Air 2 to “Iron-On Vinyl” and cut the vinyl. Be sure the image is mirrored and your Cricut Iron-On Vinyl is shiny side down on the mat. Once it finishes cutting, weed the design.
Now you are ready to iron the vinyl onto the t-shirt. Apply the design onto the shirt.
Follow the Cricut Heat Guide settings for your materials and use the EasyPress 2 to apply the Iron-On vinyl to the shirt.
Allow it to cool a bit and then peel off the film over the design. If any pieces come up then press a little longer and try again, making sure to allow the vinyl to cool a bit before peeling.
That’s it! I told you it was easy.
Then, put the shirt on the teddy bear and get ready for your big ring bearer proposal! The future ring bearer can take the shirt off the bear and wear it to rehearsal dinner and keep the teddy bear to snuggle with!
