This skeleton heart shirt is so fun and a little quirky for Valentine’s day. It’s perfect for any kid, and you get to download the free heart svg file!
I love a holiday shirt, but I love when they are pretty subtle. Since Valentine’s day was coming up I wanted a heart-inspired tee for my son to wear, but I didn’t want it to be over the top.
I thought a skeleton with a bright red heart would be the perfect combination, and you can get the free heart SVG file at the end of the post!

I’m going to be honest that I made this shirt for Halloween last year. He wanted a new shirt, and this style was just what he wanted. (If you like skeletons you can make a skeleton mermaid costume!)
In my head I was secretly thinking, “he can also wear this for Valentine’s day, and then I won’t have to make another tee!” That’s the same thing I did for his Wild One t-shirt with a free cut file.
I promise won’t tell if you use the heart SVG file for both a Halloween tee and a Valentine’s day tee! You could make these heart graphic tees for everyone all your kids and just switch out the color of the bones and the heart.
For a girl they would look great paired with these Heart Bows. The heart bows are easy to make and you can cut them out with the Cricut Maker!
I bought the black sweatshirt at the store in his size. In Design Space I sized the skeleton to be as big as a 12×12 mat would allow. I cut out the skeleton in white everyday iron-on vinyl*. On another mat I cut out the heart from red foil iron-on vinyl*.
Then I used my large EasyPress 2 to fuse it to the front of the tee. The ribs of the skeleton are just so big! See the difference between the EasyPress and the EasyPress 2! I love being able to cut with the Cricut Maker, and make a bunch of Cricut Maker projects!
If you make something using this free SVG file, I’d love to see! Please share it on social media with the hashtag #heatherhandmade and tag me!
