You may have noticed that I absolutely love my Cricut Maker. I’ve been becoming more and more confident with my Cricut machine and products and am having so much fun decorating my home with things made on my Cricut.
This Halloween I wanted to create a project with my Cricut that my grade 3 students could enjoy making. I wanted them to make something that we could hang in class during the month of October but that they would be proud to take home for Halloween and display.
I found fun Halloween silhouettes on Cricut Design Space and thought these could do the trick.

I chose fun black cat, haunted house, and pumpkin designs for my students to use. Since I teach French Immersion, I altered one of the designs with some French writing. After a few tutorials, I was able to swipe out “Happy Halloween” for “Joyeux Halloween”.
- Cricut Cardstock in black and white
- Cricut Maker
- Cricut Design Space
- Orange and yellow construction paper
- Black yarn
- Glue stick
Start by cutting the banner pieces and the silhouettes on your Cricut Maker. Once these are ready, have your students or children tear pieces of orange and yellow construction paper.
Glue these pieces onto the white banner. It’s great to layer them on top of each other. Once the background is complete cut the excess orange and yellow construction paper so that your banner edges are tidy.
Glue on your preferred silhouette, punch a few holes at the top of your banner and tie the black yarn to hold up your banner.
This project was so easy to do and looks incredible! My students absolutely loved doing it. I decorated our hall with our banners and have already received so many compliments from other teachers, students, and staff.
I’m so pleased to have come up with a creative Halloween craft that my students could enjoy making. I feel that the Cricut Halloween clip art really made the project special and memorable for my students.
All though I’ve never used a circuit machine this looks fairly easy for us beginners lol !!! 🦇🦇🦇🦇
I’m always on the look out for crafts at home for my little one like this. Easy and great to look at. Thanks!
I think a cricut will be top of my Christmas wish list, these machines are amazing. Great job!
It’s so pretty and spooky. Perfect for Halloween preparations. My kids would be happy to make this. Cute colors and easy to find items. I’ll try this with my kids.
This is such a cute craft to do with the kids. With Halloween looking different this year it would be fun for the kids to help decorate.
Such a fun crazy idea. I love that it looks like stained glass.

So cute!! I bet my nephew would climb our chairs if ever I put it on our wall.. hahaha
Oh I love these things, they are so beautiful! I’ll need to prepare my Cricut to make these Halloween decors.
I’ve really been debating getting a cricut lately. I never thought I’d use it much, but that’s because I didn’t grasp all they could do! These are super cool.
These turned out great. I really need to get myself one of these machines. I have been wanting one for a while now.
Sometimes I miss having a Cricut, like when I see cool crafts like this super easy Halloween Cricut Craft! It looks so professional and would be something I’d love to hang in my home.
That is very cool looking. This is a craft machine that does amazing things
These cricut designs are amazing. Could be used for cards and decor like you did in the post.
I love how cute those are! What fabulous Halloween decorations… and a Cricut sure makes an intricate design like that look amazing.
