We’re counting down the days to Halloween with another fun DIY project. This one is inspired by our latest trip to Disneyland during Halloween Time. (Check out my 10 Reasons To Visit Disneyland, if you haven’t yet!)

There we were standing in line to ride the Haunted Mansion Holiday Ride. You know you can’t visit Disneyland during Halloween Time without visiting Jack Skellington. So anyway, there we were and I looked up by the little pumpkin patch and saw these fun Jack o Lantern style lanterns.
And it hit me! I can make those in a snap with my Cricut Explore Air2!
I’m excited to share how they came out so you can make them too!
Let’s get started!
What you will need:
- Cricut Explore Air 2™
- Cutting Mat
- Cricut Vinyl
- Cricut Transfer Tape
- Cricut Tools
- Large Black Lantern
- Jack-O-Lantern Design. Get the design HERE.
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
- Orange Tissue Paper
Open Cricut Design Space and click on the design above.
When you are ready to cut, turn the dial to select the Vinyl setting.
Next, apply the vinyl to the mat with the right side facing up. Load the mat into the Cricut by pushing the arrow button.
Once the mat is loaded follow the prompts in Cricut Design Space.
Once the design is cut, push the arrow button to unload the mat. Remove the vinyl from the mat, leaving the cut design.
Using the Cricut tools remove the mouth, eyes and vinyl around the rectangle
Cut a piece of Transfer Tape and apply over the design.
Using the burnish tool, rub the Transfer Tape firmly on top of the vinyl. And slowly pull back the Transfer Tape. The design will then come off the paper backing for easy application. Next, place the design on the glass panel and rub firmly with the burnish tool. Remove the transfer tape to reveal the finished image. Trim the edges as needed.
Next, flip over the glass and apply a piece of orange tissue paper on the backside with mod podge. Let Dry.
Add a LED light and you’re all set!
A super easy way to add a little bit of Disney to your Halloween décor!
