How to Make a Halloween Sign with Cricut
Halloween may be months away, but now is the time to start your crafting for the season. Especially if you are a small business and need to add products to your inventory. If you’ve been shopping lately, you’ll see that Halloween has hit the shelves already, so let’s get crafting! Creating with heavy chipboard and my Cricut Maker/Maker 3 is one of my favorite ways of making holiday decor. You can really make anything you see in the big craft stores for a fraction of the cost, and make it just the way you want to! Of course, you’re limited to the size of the chipboard, but even so, you can create so many cute things, like this adorable ghost sign holding her little pumpkin!
What you will need:
Knife Blade for the Chipboard
Printable Sticker Paper (I’m using Teckwrap brand, it’s awesome!)
Hot Glue Gun
I created a quick video showing the cutting process, check it out below:
Let’s go through the steps:
Open the project in Cricut Design Space. Resize as needed. Click Make It to print. Load your inkjet printer with the sticker paper and print. I deselect bleed and use the system dialog to select my printing preferences. With my printer, I select High Quality and Photo Paper as my material.
Once printed, remove the backing of the sticker paper and apply it to the chipboard. Be sure to get it as close to the corner as possible.
In Cricut Design Space select your material. Change your blade to the Knife Blade. Calibrate if needed. Secure the Chipboard to the Strong Grip Mat with masking tape and move the white wheels on the machine all the way over to the right-hand side and Cut. Remove from the mat.
Follow steps 2 and 3 to print and cut the pumpkin shape.
Apply double-sided foam tape to the back of the pumpkin and add it to the ghost.
Add a piece of ribbon to the back for hanging and attach it with glue.
Isn’t it adorable? You can make so many cute Halloween signs using the print-then-cut feature and your Cricut Maker or Cricut Maker 3. I hope you try out this technique and if you do, tag me on social @michellespartyplanit. I’d love to see what you create!
