USE THESE FREE HALLOWEEN CUT FILES TO DECORATE YOUR HOUSE FOR THE SPOOKY HOLIDAY.
Halloween isn’t a holiday I decorate for very often. It always sneaks up on me. But this year, I thought I would use my Cricut to cut out some fun Halloween shapes to decorate the house. I think we are actually missing a box of last years Halloween decorations, so I’m starting from scratch this year. I had a lot of fun designing these Halloween cut files for you guys and hope you enjoy using them to decorate your house.

For years, I’ve wanted to put bats on the wall so it looks like they are flying through the house. I don’t know why it took me so long to do this. It is such an easy decoration. Sometimes I put off the easy tasks way too long.
I was going to do this with removable vinyl, but then decided to use card stock so they would have a 3-d effect. And I wanted lots of bats so it would make a big impact. I also had a hard time deciding where to put them. Originally, I thought I would put them up our stair case, but then only we would see them. I wanted guests to see them when they come by. So I finally decided to put them in our front hall way as you walk in the front door.
I used a ladder to reach the top of the wall. One of my kids stuck the glue dots on and handed them to me, which was a good way to spend some one on one time with one of my kids. And since these are cardstock, I can reuse them every year. I think they look pretty awesome, don’t you?
I’ve provided this file for you as an SVG, DXF, PNG, or PDF. That way you can cut them with a cutting machine or cut them by hand.
If you aren’t able to cut these out with a cutting machine, or don’t want to cut them out by hand, you can buy them in my etsy shop.
Spiders are such a great creepy crawly to decorate with for Halloween. Especially when you have kids afraid of spiders;) I painted a wood sign for my front door and I thought it would be great to add some vinyl spiders to the door as well.
I designed these to match the spider I painted on my wood sign. Besides the front door, I placed a few around the house with out telling my kids so they could be spooked by them when they came across them.
If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can also find these in my Etsy Shop.
We have two birthdays in October, my husband and second son. Sometimes we have Halloween themed cakes and desserts. And I know lots of people like to have Halloween Parties.
For my son’s birthday this year, he gets to have a birthday party because he is turning eight. His party will be on the weekend and not on his birthday. So on his actual birthday, he gets cupcakes and at his party he gets a cake.
I thought cupcake wrappers would be an easy way to dress up the cupcakes without having to spend too much time and effort decorating them. I took a cake decorating class years ago, and loved watching Cake Boss for quite some time. Sometimes I go all out and spend days making the cake my kids have described to me.
But sometimes, I just need something simple and less stressful. And cupcakes with cupcake wrappers are the answer. The other bonus is, you get little confetti shapes of bats, ghosts, and pumpkins that can be sprinkled around the party table.
Halloween Foam Bath Shapes
The other day, my youngest was playing with some of the cardstock bats that I made for the wall and she wanted them to be water proof so she could play with them in the bath tub. I thought about laminating them but they wouldn’t last very long until they started falling apart.
Then I remembered my kids had craft foam shapes for the bath years ago. Did your kids ever have foam alphabet letters that they could play with in the bath tub and they would stick to the tub walls? So I thought maybe I could cut some out of craft foam! We made a trip to the store to pick up craft foam and started cutting. She watched as the Cricut cut out her new toy. Then she ran upstairs to take a bath. We even cut out the letters in her name.
If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can cut them out by hand without too much difficulty since they are large images. You can also buy these in my Etsy shop.
I’ve been to a few stores that have had some really cute Halloween quotes on wood signs and I thought they would be great for shirts. Resting witch face was my favorite, so I had to turn that into a shirt for myself. I don’t ever wear holiday themed shirts, but I just had to make this one.
I made this “bootiful” shirt for my daughter. She is still young enough that I can make her what I want and she’ll still wear it.
I also painted a wood sign for my front door and used a stencil I cut out of removable vinyl to paint “Fright this way”. Vinyl is my preferred method for making stencils because it sticks really well to the surface. I really like how well this wood sign turned out. It’s my favorite out of all my Halloween decorations I made this year.
