Let’s make a Witch’s Kitchen Halloween sign with our Cricut! I shared in my last post, Bee Witch Halloween Costume with the new Cricut EasyPress 2 Mini, how much I love this time of year. It’s the kickoff to all the holiday crafting! I start with Halloween in late August and don’t let up until December 15th or so. It’s wonderful! :)
This little canvas art will sit on my kitchen mantle! I personalized it with the year I married my hubby and I’ve provided numbers 0-9 in the art file so you can personalize it in Design Space for the year you married, bought your house, had kids, etc! You can download it here!
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE A HALLOWEEN SIGN
You might be thinking, why did she use a Mini on such a large canvas. Well, it took me by surprise too! But once I got started I realized that the Mini allowed me to be able to measure as I went and press one small element at a time, so everything was perfectly spaced. It worked beautifully!

HOW TO MAKE A IRON-ON CANVAS
If you’ve ever used your Cricut to make any iron-on project, this is pretty much the same. The only thing you is, you need to be able to fit your EasyPress mat, or towel, under and inside the frame of the canvas so that it’s supported while you press.
- Design – Create a design in Cricut Design Space, using their well over 100,000 images as of this week! Yay! Design your own, or grab mine!
- Upload and Size Design – watch my video below to see how I do upload layered designs, change colors and size designs to fit my canvas. You can find this design in my Etsy Shop.
- Cut – following Design Space, cut each element from glitter, foil, everyday, holographic and more!
- Weed – carefully weed all the negative space out of your design.
- Measure and Press – I used the EasyPress 2 Mini with great success on this project. No matter which you use, measure and measure again!
HOW DO I UPLOAD LAYERED DESIGNS TO CRICUT DESIGN SPACE?
I’m using my Witch’s Kitchen Halloween canvas design as an example, but these tips are good for any layered design that you upload to Cricut Design Space. In this video you’ll learn:
