CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • card stock
  • wiggle eyes
  • plastic wrap
  • lunch sacks
  • black crinkled paper
  • sand
  • white writing pen
  • adhesive
  • bamboo skewers

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut all pieces out first to the desired sizes for your centerpiece. I based mine on the width of a brown paper lunch bag.
Halloween sack
Ink edges if desired and create all pieces. For the candy piece I wrapped it in plastic wrap to make it look more like a piece of candy. The boo has wiggle eyes for more character. I also changed the color of the moon behind the haunted house to make it stand out a bit more. You can also hand draw lines on the pumpkin to make it look more dimensional.
Lay the brown paper bag behind the pumpkin bag. Cut the brown paper bag so it doesn't show over the pumpkin. Adhere the pumpkin to the brown paper bag. Place a jar or cup inside the bag and fill sand. This will keep the skewers in place. Now your ready to start adding pieces.
Apply some strong adhesive tape to the back of each shape. Press your skewers to the tape and run another piece of tape over the skewer until secure. Decide on the height of each piece and arrange in the sand. You may need to cut off an inch or two from the bottom of the skewer to reach the desired length. You can also double side the whole arrangement if you are wanting this to be seen from both sides.
Add the black crinkled paper to the inside of the bag. You want it to stick out a bit and cover the sand from the top.
