Who doesn’t love a Holiday sign, especially when using a fun cut file and cute patterned paper?
To create this Halloween sign, I began with using Royal Sundance White FELT Cardstock (which is on sale now, so it’s a perfect time to stock up!). This stuff is dreamy I tell ya! It cuts nicely and is sturdy, which is a perfect combination of wonderful.
I wanted to create this sign as large as I could with the limits of the 8.5×11 cardstock, so I enlarged the cut file to fit the cardstock and cut the body allowing the hat to go off the page. Don’t worry, I fit it in later as you’ll see.
Once that was cut, I then traced and cut just the hat portion and spider, and then cut them.
Once cutting was complete I started to back the cut file.
(A side note- I accidentally set my first cut to outline, so I had an extra piece that I was going to use as a base for my project, but in the end scratched it since the cardstock holds up well, and I didn’t want any white showing through. I’ll share the photo so you can see what I ended up with just in case you want to use a base.)
You can see the full witch hat and additional spider here:
I wanted to add some texture to this project so I added some dimensional paint on the spider. I trimmed him down and then added it to the entire body and let it dry overnight. Once dry, then adhere to the base sign.
I created some holes to add floss in multiple areas; the spider web on the cauldron, the web string for the spider, as well as the bat’s fangs.
Other details to add whimsy and dimension completed the sign such as some chipboard, twine, a wooden button, and some fussy cut flowers.
The completed witch hat was adhered over the base to fill the uncut areas.
I added some twine to hang and called it good. The end result is a fun piece of home decor that would look good anywhere.
Head on over to the CutCardStock store to save on this fabulous white FELT cardstock (it’s dreamy for cutting cut files!) and stock up on others. I recently stocked up on some yummy colors of various types and cannot wait to dig in!
I’ll be back soon with another Fall project.
