Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Clean out inside of your pumpkin. Cut face from pumpkin on A Frightful Affair cartridge out of Cricut vinyl using attached CCR file. Place as desired on pumpkin and cut holes in the pumpkin where the spaces are.
Cover a paper mache cone with patterned paper using Mod Podge. Cut out circle shape from the attached file (11.25" with a 3.5" in the middle). Since the hole in the middle is slightly smaller than the opening of the cone, cut little slits all around. Fold the small edges into the cone and attach. I just used scotch tape.
Cut 8 pieces of hemp about 9" long each. Attach around the brim of hat with fabric-tac, allowing the ends to hang over the edge to hang the spiders from. Cut 8 spiders from black craft foam using the attached CCR file. This part was a little tricky. The settings that finally worked for me was blade - 5, pressure - 3, speed - 2, mulit-cut 3.
Attach spiders to the ends of the string with fabri-tac.
Cut bat image at 2.5" from A Frightful Affair cartridge. I ran the top layer through the Xyron adhesive machine then added black licorice glitter by Martha Stewart. Next adhere it to the front of the hat with Mod Podge.
Using hot glue, adhere the feather boa to the hat around the bottom of the cone.
Add some LED tealights and turn out the lights!
