Halloween is my favorite holiday!! I love the fall colors and decorating my house and daycare. I found two different pumpkins on Pinterest that I loved - so I combined the two designs together. I put my "L" on the front and gems on the top.
I purchased a 5 inch creamy white foam pumpkin from Michaels.
My "L" was cut from a piece of gold Buckle Boutique Rhinestone Resin Self-Adhesive Sticker Sheet. You can find these HERE (some colors are on sale right now too)!
I used my Gypsy with my cricut expression. I got the "L" from Quarter Note. I measured my pumpkin and determined the "L" should be around 3.5 inches. I sized my "L" to 3.59 inches.
I flipped the "L" to cut it out in reverse.
The Rhinestone Sticker Sheets cut best face down on a sticky mat. My mat is not as sticky as I would like, so I taped the edges down too.
Here are the instructions for cutting with a Cricut:
- Use a deep cut blade
- Place your blade depth at 6
- Use a mulit-cut of 3 or 4 depending on how new your blade is
- Put your speed on slow
- Place the product face down on the Cricut cutting mat, making sure it is in a very sticky spot. I usually run my hand over it to really make sure it is stuck down.
- Use Flip Mode on your Cricut (since you have the product upside down, you need to flip the cut for the image to be correct when you flip it over)
Here is the "L" cut out. I peeled the backing off and stuck the "L" on the flattest side of the pumpkin.
It looks pretty, but I wanted a little more sparkle!!
I purchased these gems from Michaels, The pack includes clear, gold, dark grey and black crystals in 3 sizes. I used Beacon 527 glue to adhere them to the top of the pumpkin.
I put 5 or so dots of glue on at a time and stuck the gems on.
I am so happy with how this turned out!!
I hope you have a Blingy Fall!!
