Yesterday I shared these Easy Halloween Cupcake Toppers & Wrappers, and I told you I would have even more cute Halloween decor to share with you. Today I’m sharing this Easy Halloween Art, you probably already have enough supplies on hand to create it.
– large picture frame with wood backing
– gold spray paint
– white acrylic paint
– foam brush
– black vinyl
– Cricut Explore cutting machine
– Cricut cutting mat
After taking a quick peak around my stash of decor I remembered I had a large scalloped unfinished wood frame that I had been meaning to do something with. It was perfect for this project. I simply took out the wood backing and gave it a couple quick coats of white paint, I like DecoArt Americana Multi-Surface paints for quick projects like this.
While the white paint was drying I took the frame outside and spray painted it gold, yes I always have gold spray paint on hand – it’s a must!
After setting everything aside to dry I created a quick quote in photoshop and uploaded it to my Cricut Design Space. I was able to transform it into a cuttable file within seconds, one of my favorite features about the Explore.
After designing my image and sizing it to fit in the frame I cut it out on to black vinyl.
I then weeded (removed) the parts I didn’t need, applied some transfer tape to the vinyl and was sure to remove air bubbles.
After the wood backing for the frame was dry I put it back in the freshly gold painted frame.
I centered my vinyl image, and began at one corner…peeling the paper back away slowly and carefully. If you start in a small section and make sure it is adhered then gently roll the vinyl image on to the surface while removing the paper backing you are more likely to get a centered image.
That’s it, you’re done! So quick right? This was such an easy project, I love how it turned out. The black – white – and gold are perfect together. You can create any Halloween saying or quote in Cricut Design Space, or in another editing program and upload it to Design Space.
