Halloween Garland Cut Tutorial!

Hi! Today I’m featuring my first tutorial ever on this blog!

Recently I have added this listing to my Etsy and my TpT stores. There’s two ways to use it.

Halloween D.I.Y. Jack O Lanterns- Cutting Files

The first one:  you can create a Halloween garland decoration. Here’s how:

You can cut the files with the Basic Silhouette software easily, Cricut, Sure Cuts a Lot software too.

  1. Open the two .studio3 files on your Silhouette Studio software.

Pumpkins

Noses, mouths and eyes

2. Grab the faces features and copy them into the pumpkins file. Ungroup all the shapes.

3. Play with the shapes, duplicate pumpkins, add the faces features to each one, resize noses, rotate eyes, make groups with each pumpkin when you are done.

4. When you have your pumpkins ready, resize each pumpkin group till you find the right size to make a garland. I wanted mine to be very visible on my door, so I took the measures, my door is about 60 inches wide, and I wanted the garland to have 5 pumpkins on it, so that’s about 12 inches space for each one. There has to be space between them, about 2 inches, more or less. So I resized the pumpkins to about 8 to 9 inches wide each.

5. Then open the modify window, ungroup the shapes, substract, and voila!

6. Repeat the procedure with each pumpkin and then cut each one on orange paper.

And that’s it! Attach to a nice string and hang it on your door, window or chimney!

There’s another way to use these files. Cut the pumpkins in orange paper, the noses, mouths and eyes on black paper first, and then on yellow paper, that gives the pumpkins a lightened up look. Then hand out the pieces to your kids, and let them play, making their own Jack O Lanterns! A nice way to spend a fall evening!

You can cut these on magnetic paper too, available at Silhouette’s online store, and play with the pumpkins on your fridge.

If you don’t have a cutting machine, the listing comes with a PDF that you can print and cut with your scissors!

Society 6

Here is my first collection at Society 6. It is inspired in my love of tiles!

This pattern is based on ancient Moroccan Tiles, mixed with background orange blossom flowers, or “azahar”, which had such a rich smell, and transports ourselves to desserts and groves.
