Cricut Tutorial: Witches Coven Inspired Halloween Pumpkin
It's pumpkin season! As much as I love carving a pumpkin, I am always sad when all too quickly I am having to chuck it away.
Luckily, there is a solution... Ceramic pumpkins! Bring out your collection of personalised pumpkins every year to get into the spooky spirit!
I decorated my first ceramic pumpkin last year which was a lovely pastel ghost pumpkin which you can see the tutorial for here.
Now as a bit of a tradition, I would like to make a new ceramic pumpkin every year!
This year I went for a witch theme and used my Cricut Machine to help decorate, selecting images from the many thousands of Halloween and witch images available on Cricut Design Space.
Here is a video tutorial of how it all came together:
You will need:
StandardGrip Cutting Mat (If not using Smart vinyl)
Purple Acrylic paint (I mixed berry, blue and white white paint together)
Gold Acrylic Paint
Ceramic Pumpkin - I got mine from Hobbycraft

Font used - American Horror Story fans may be quick to recognise the font on my pumpkin! I downloaded the font to my desktop and then access this on Design Space by going to Font - System Fonts. I downloaded it here.
Happy pumpkin decorating. Our forever pumpkins can be on display every year throughout October plus they are fun to make too!
