Glow in the Dark Ghost Vest



Use glow-in-the-dark iron on thread to add ghost(s) to a black Halloween vest. This simple project makes for a quick and easy Halloween outfit.

Glow in the Dark Ghost Vest


  • purchased black vest (look for one at your local Goodwill, costume, or consignment shop)
  • Mrs. K’s Iron-on Ribbon in 6700 Cantaloupe, 6710 Coconut, 6720 Honeydew (they all glow in the dark)
  • Mrs. K’s Fine #8 Braid in 6700 Cantaloupe, 6710 Coconut, 6720 Honeydew
  • Mini iron or household iron
  • Teflon Press Cloth
  • fabric marking pen or pencil (one that washes off or disappears)
  • ghost template- use a ghost pattern from a coloring book, a child’s drawing, or your own pattern. Photocopy it in a variety of sizes.


  1. Turn your iron onto the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.
  2. Cut out your ghost pattern templates and lay in desired pattern on your vest. Trace each pattern with your fabric marking pen.
  3. Outline each ghost pattern on your vest with Iron-on Ribbon: Place your ribbon at a starting point, cover with the Teflon Press Cloth, and press with your hot iron for several seconds until the thread adheres. Continue, working in sections.
  4. Make the eyes and mouth with Fine Iron-on Braid, always covering with the Teflon before ironing to keep the adhesive in the thread from sticking to your iron.
  5. Write “Boo” freehand with your fabric marker. Trace over this word with Fine Iron-on Braid.
  6. For maximum wearability, tack down the iron-on thread with tiny stitches using a clear monofilament thread.
