In this blog post, you’ll find 6 different Cricut projects plus information on what materials and SVG files you need to create them! Here’s what you can make with your Cricut for Halloween:

Cricut Halloween Project Ideas
I’m always inspired during the holidays to get crafty with my Cricut! It’s easy to get inspired on Instagram, TikTok and Pinterest these days with new DIY ideas. I like to get most of my crafting materials from the Canadian dollar store, Dollarama, Ikea or Amazon. Then I use Cricut Design Space to create a design, or I google for Free “SVG files”. You can also purchase downloadable files from Etsy at a pretty low cost. To make it a little easier on you, I’ve included some FREE Cricut designs that I’ve created so that you can use them too!
Halloween Cricut Sweatshirts
Graphic tees and sweatshirts are my favourite thing to create with my Cricut! And it’s so much easier and affordable than purchasing these items online. Just create your own! I shop for my plain sweatshirts from Walmart because I like the quality, fit, and price. I’ve made quite a few lately with iron-on heat transfer vinyl from Amazon. I purchase a lot of my vinyl from Amazon because it is so much cheaper than buying rolls from Cricut and you get so many colours to choose from!
Of all the Cricut Halloween projects that I created this month, this “Hope You Brought Boos” mat is my favourite. And I designed it myself so I’m sharing this pattern for free with you! I know that it makes people smile, every time they come to my door. This was a design that I created using Cricut design space.
Make sure to measure your coconut mat so that your design fits appropriately. I grab mine from Ikea for only $9.99! For this project, you will use your Cricut to create a stencil. After removing the letters, place the vinyl on your mat, without using transfer paper. It can be a little tedious but move it around until you have it where you want it. Use acrylic paint and a paintbrush to paint inside the stencil letters. I do a couple of coats. Seal and protect your mat with a polyurethane clear spray.
With the new Hocus Pocus 2 movie appearing on Disney this month,k these three witches are all the rage again! I grabbed a mug from Dollarama and added this Hocus Pocus decal over top after cutting it out on permanent vinyl on my Cricut Maker 3. Vinyl colours needed: black, red, orange, purple, and yellow.
A “Boo Board” welcomes or scares your guests when they approach your front door! I also like to lean them against my fireplace to help draw attention from the ground to my mantle. They are cheap and easy to do! I use acrylic paint that can be cheaply purchased from Dollarama or Dollar Store. Use a 12″ piece of plywood that has been sanded down to create a smooth surface. Paint your wood and allow it to dry. Create a fun stencil using your Cricut and permanent vinyl sheets. Use transfer tape to place and adhere your design to your board.
Craft pumpkins are a must for fall and Halloween decorations! I have so many, that I bring out every year to decorate my front porch and fireplace area. Get creative with different designs and adhere the vinyl to one side of your craft pumpkin s that you can turn them around to the plain side during the beginning of fall and t the Halloween decal side during October!
These removable bats are easy and can be placed on any smooth surface. The Cricut removable vinyl is a must as you probably aren’t looking for these to last any longer than Halloween! I love placing them on mirrors, windows or even walls! Use this FREE Removable bat SVG Cricut Design Space or add a bat image and add as many bats as possible in varying sizes. Print them out on your removable vinyl, remove the paper and place them wherever you’d like! Pell them off and toss them away when you are finished. They are only good for one-time use and are not reusable.
Throw Pillows are an easy way to add themed decor to your home. If you can create your own, you’ll save tons of money too! I use these pillow covers from Ikea as they are only $5 and come in many different colours! Create a two-sided pillow case by adding a design to one side and a different one to the other. It’s like two pillows in one! I used “Hello Pumpkin” for a fall-themed pillow option and “Talk Spooky to Me” for a more Halloween-themed pillow.
