Shake up traditional fall colors with this gorgeous color palette. Follow along to make your own ‘If You Got It, Haunt It’ Pumpkin Banner.
Begin by uploading the Jackie-o'-Lantern SVG into Cricut Design Space. Next, search Cricut Design Space Images for a pumpkin you’d like to use. If you’d like to use the same pumpkin pictured, I used the Jack O Lantern from the Miss Kate Cuttables-Happy Halloween cartridge. Once you’ve inserted the pumpkin image you’d like to use, place the SVG on top of the pumpkin face and resize the image to match the desired dimensions. For reference, I sized the pumpkins pictured to 3.5 inches in width.
Select ‘Make It’ in Design Space, load the first color and let your machine do the work.
Also for reference, I cut 10 pumpkins with two per color grouping alternating the colors in the pair. Once everything has been cut, organize the pieces into separate piles.
To assemble the pumpkins, being by piecing together the pumpkin you chose from Design Space Images. Once your pumpkin is assembled, take the Black Mirror Jackie-o-Lantern pieces and place them on the pumpkin face.
Continue this process until you have 10 complete pumpkins.
Next, using a hot glue gun, attached the ribbon to the backs of each pumpkin making sure to space them evenly.
Now, to make the bows between each pumpkin, take the leftover ribbon and begin by cutting nine five-inch strips.
To make these bows, make two loops and hold the ribbon as shown in the top image above. Then take the right side, and wrap it around the left loop pulling it under and through the hole created. Allow the ribbon to roll around and slowly pull on the two loops to tighten the knot created.
Once all of the ribbons have been turned into bows, attach these to the space between each pumpkin.
Next, search Cricut Design Space Images again for a spider web. For reference, if you’d like to use the same on pictured, I used the Spider Web Silhouette from the Creepy Critters cartridge. Load the Black Mirror Cardstock and select ‘Make It’ in Design Space. Once the webs have been cut, attach them to the pumpkins.
Now the question is, what will you do with the leftover cardstock? Make some confetti!
Your banner is now assembled and you’re ready to find a place to hang it up. Comment below on where you decided to hang your banner!
