Halloween is just around the corner and I love to add a little bit of easy “halloweeny” flair to my home without getting too “creepy.” The solution? A hefty dose of gold and creamy white without any blood and guts and such. Won’t you join me for three easy gold vinyl Halloween craft ideas today? Let’s get crafting!
- Gold Vinyl
- Silhouette Machine
- Cut Files (Pumpkins, Halloween “tags” and Halloween Banners)
- Various Candles
- Canvas Bunting and Sharpie Marker (or black paint)
- Beat Up Metal Tray (Check your local thrift store!)
- Orange Twinkle Lights
PROJECT #1 — Gold Vinyl Candles
The first of 3 Halloween craft ideas I wanted to create was a simple update to basic creamy white candles. They already have a “harvest/fall” color to them, so the addition of gold vinyl decals made them perfectly Halloweeny! I used THIS Silhouette cut file (99 cents) for the three designs as well as THESE darling pumpkins (also 99 cents). You will see them pop up over and over again in this vignette!
PROJECT #2 – Gold and Black Halloween Banner
The second of the Halloween craft ideas is a play off a previous project you have seen here at Crafts Unleashed (Remember this canvas banner??). I simply colored in one side of the banner with a giant sharpie marker and added a few more of my gold vinyl “stickers.” (Get the banner cut files HERE).
The black and white striped side reflects off the back of the mirror for added interest — fun, eh?
PROJECT #3 – Jack-O-Lantern Metal Tray
Hands down, the easiest project of the bunch was this little “Jack-O-Lantern” Tray. I simply got a beat up old metal tray for pennies at the thrift store, gave it a coat of creamy white spray paint and added a gold vinyl face. Don’t own a silhouette machine? No problem!! You could ABSOLUTELY cut out fun Jack-O-Lantern faces out of vinyl with basic scissors. Wouldn’t a whole display of trays with unique faces be fun??
Light ’em up baby!
I added three strands of Halloween (orange!) twinkle lights, hiding the lightbulbs as much as possible so the effect was more of a “glow” than individual light bursts. The first strand hides behind the candles and back of the dresser, while two other strands are stuffed into drawers cracked open for a bit of a creepy “something is going to pop out of the drawer” look. I hope you enjoyed these Halloween craft ideas!
Happy Halloween y’all! Get crafting!
