I am so excited to be able to participate in another round of Craft Lighting with Angie from Country Chic Cottage. This round includes all 15 minute craft projects using the Cricut Maker. If you have been wanting to get your hands on one then make sure you stay here until the bottom of the post because we are giving one away!
I love using vinyl in my projects because it holds so well but can also be removed. I love the intricate designs of sugar skulls for Halloween so I used my own images into the Cricut Design Software (here is the tutorial on how to do that). I cut those two designs out of vinyl in various sizes- I hate wasting the material so I just fit as many as I could onto the 12×12 sheet.
Sugar Skull Halloween Decor
The largest size looks great on some solid white melamine plates. Doesn’t it look great on the mercury glass chargers? Classy Halloween meals around this house! Vinyl is perfect for a short celebration, easy to remove after, or keep for yearly decorations!
Cupcake Toppers are so easy to make with black white and orange cardstock paper folded into accordion wheels and a 3D Bat attached to a toothpick. For the sugar skull cupcake topper I used a piece of the vinyl cutouts I had, but another great option would be to use the pens in the Cricut (explore or maker).
I didn’t get any awesome pictures, but you can see I experimented with using the negative of the designs for a different look.
Now its time for the giveaway! I am teaming up with all the amazing bloggers taking part in the Craft Lightning round-up to give away one Cricut Maker machine! For those of you who follow me on social media you know that I attended an event where they announced this amazing machine to the public. I have a post in the works to share all the great new features on this machine.
