We’re hosting a Cricut giveaway with a few of our favorite Instagram friends! If you haven’t already entered, check out everything in the giveaway package as well as the details on how to enter on our Instagram page. We love our Cricut machines and thought we’d share a quick and easy Halloween craft we made with ours. I’m sure these skeleton bride and groom silhouette jars will be a fun, creepy addition to our Halloween decor!
Both Lara and I have wedding anniversaries in October and I mentioned to her the other day that because of that, I’ve started collecting bride and groom Halloween decorations. I like how it gives a nod to MY favorite day in October all while celebrating my kids’ favorite day in October.
Wanna make one?? Here’s the supply list:
I found some cute bride and groom skeletons online and uploaded them to my Cricut Design Space.
I was originally planning on using my Cricut vinyl but knowing that I would be using for a stencil and then throw it away, I decided I didn’t want to waste it!! So I had an idea to use contact paper instead. I used the “paper” setting and this worked perfectly! It cut through the contact paper without cutting the backing.
Here’s a better picture of the design after cutting.
I used my handy dandy Cricut hook tool to remove the small pieces.
After clearing the excess pieces of contact paper away, I put my designs onto the transfer tape.
I pressed the design onto the jars and pulled the transfer tape away. It helped to pull directly down, basically folding the transfer tape on top of itself so the design didn’t come off of the jars. The contact paper wasn’t going to stay on the jars permanently so I wasn’t worried about a few little bubbles here and there.
Ready to be sprayed!!
I hammered stakes into my lawn (if you can really call it that!! We live in CA and let our grass die because of our drought conditions.) I placed the jars on top and sprayed around 4 coats. This picture was taken after the second.
It only took about 5 minutes to be completely dry! I peeled off the contact paper, crossing my fingers that the spray hadn’t leaked underneath.
I love the way they turned out!! Exactly as I’d hoped!
Now if you want to make cute stuff like this for yourself…. Enter our giveaway! We know that you’ll love your Cricut as much as we do! Happy Halloween!
