I love Halloween, my Cricut, and banners. They’re a perfect match! I’m participating in the Fall Cricut Challenge and am so excited to share my project with you! I wanted a quote and design with a Halloween inspiration and couldn’t get “something wicked this way comes” out of my head, so I ran with it. I’m so happy with how my Something Wicked This Way Comes Banner turned out! It’s such a fun Halloween decoration!
The rules of the challenge were simple–we each received a box with some product and had to use at least one item in a Cricut-based project. You’ll be seeing projects with the rest of the goodies I received soon, but for this one, the gold glitter iron-on vinyl and black iron-on vinyl jumped out at me as perfect for a Halloween project. I added in some black glitter iron-on vinyl from my own stash, a canvas banner (18×27), some black pom pom trim, and, of course, my Cricut Explore to finish out my supply list.
I measured the banner so that I knew how large to make my cuts. I didn’t want it to go end to end and after playing around a bit, I decided that 12″ was the width I wanted for the largest cut.
I played around with some fonts and ended up using A Frightful Affair for Something This Way Comes and Blackletter for Wicked. The witch is #MA90CB in Design Space. You can access the entire project file at this link.
I used the regular black iron-on for Something This Way Comes, the black glitter for Wicked and the top layer of the witch, and gold glitter for the bottom layer of the witch. Remember to check the reverse for iron-on box when you cut!!
Add the pom pom trim to the bottom of the banner. You can stitch it on or use glue–whatever works for you!
I am so insanely happy with how my Something Wicked This Way Comes Banner turned out! It was so easy to make and I smile every time I walk past it. This was a crazy fun challenge and I ended up with something that will be a part of our Halloween decor for many (many!) years to come!
