3 Spooky Halloween Crafts with Cricut
Summer went to fast! I can’t believe it will be fall in a couple of weeks! As much as I hate to see summer over, fall is a blast to decorate for! All the warm colors and those pumpkins and gourds! Then there is the end of October. Super fun to decorate and I’ve made some cute things to help you this year. Come on and let me show you my 3 Spooky Halloween Crafts with Cricut.

Halloween Pillow with Cricut
I love making pillows. They are the perfect final touch to decorating I think. Super easy to make as I show you in Canvas Tarp Farmhouse Pillow . This pillow is a mini and is even easier to make. Begin by cutting 2 equal pieces in the shape you want your pillow. Mine is going to be square this time.
Since I intend to use this pillow in my 2 tiered tray I choose a Halloween design I found online. I cut it from HTV using my Cricut Maker and cranked up the EasyPress2 to adhere it to the fabric. Don’t forget to mirror your image before cutting.
Almost finished! Place the pieces right sides together and stitch around leaving a small gap to be able to turn it and stuff it. Clip the corners so they are not too bulky once turned.
Now just stuff it with some polyfil and stitch the hole closed with a blind stitch.
I found this broom are a thrift store for $3 which is getting close to the top end of what I like to pay for thrift items, but it was in perfect shape. So I bought it knowing that it would be great to use as is and even better if I embellished it!
Dollar Tree had these wedding signs. Perfect for what I had in mind for my project.
Finishing Up the Spooky Broom
The back pieces popped right off by hand and I spray painted the front with a semi gloss black.
Next step is to dry brush some elephant chalk paint on the arrow signs.
I made these 3 designs in Design Space, cut them with my Cricut Maker and transferred them onto the signs. Remember to point one arrow in the opposite direction. So my black design didn’t show up well because I didn’t get enough elephant chalk paint on the arrow. Therefore I used a piece of orange chalk and rubbed it on the design to help it ‘pop’.
Now all I have to do is attach them to the broom with some hot glue and I have a beautiful, spooky Halloween craft with Cricut!
Spooky Fall Bucket
This buckets was part of a 3 pack from Dollar Tree therefore this is a super cheap project. If you want to call things from the stash free, I had everything on hand so it was free to me at this point in time! I began by spray painting it white.
To add some depth and dimension to the bucket, dry brush some elephant and ink chalk paint onto the outside.
I used this design from Design Space to finish decorating the bucket. First I cut and transferred the spooky house onto the bucket. This was with premium vinyl. After that I cut the bats from card stock. With a dab of hot glue, attach the bats to the pokes.
Next fill the bucket with some floral foam and cover it with some Spanish moss.
Now just simply poke the bats onto the foam and place a couple of pumpkins in the moss. OMG! How cute is this?! Certainly a great addition to the Halloween decorations.
