It’s October 1st! Time to start thinking about all things black, orange, and spooky!
Aside from the carved pumpkins on the doorstep, we’ve never decorated anything for Hallowe’en before. I figured it couldn’t hurt to add a few little spooky touches this year to get my little girl (& husband!) in the mood! I LOVE to decorate, but I wanted some quick & easy projects, so the first decorations I chose were these DIY Mummy Bowls.
You start by logging into the Cricut Design Space, and designing eyes for your mummy bowls. All I did was insert circle shapes and place them as I wanted them. The outer circles were 1.5″ (1″ for smaller bowl) and the inner circles were 0.75″ (0.5″). When I was ready, I printed on Black Vinyl using my Cricut Explore One.
Next, I cut all of my tulle down so that it was only 2-3″ wide, and in very long strips. Then I wrapped and wrapped those bowls up! It doesn’t have to look too neat – I say the messier the better! Once I had a few layers, I stuck my vinyl eyes to the tulle, and then I kept wrapping. I liked the idea of the eyes being slightly hidden in the tulle.
That was it!
An hour later I had a few perfectly spooky Hallowe’en decorations for the home!
You could easily put candy in these, or candles, or spooky toys, or party favours. I love DIY’s with so many options!
Have you started decorating for Hallowe’en?
Hope you enjoyed the project!
