Hi again! It’s Annie, and today I wanted to share a few fun projects that you can make with your Silhouette to decorate for Halloween. Whether you love creating your own decor or you just waited until the last minute and nothing is left at the store, these six ideas will inspire you to break out your machines and get your DIY on!
Potion Label Stickers
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of traditional, spooky decor for Halloween and these potion bottles by Marie are the perfect addition to any creepy display. With a little Printable White Sticker Paper and Print & Cut designs from the Silhouette Design Store, this project comes together in a flash. The best part is that you probably have a few old bottles already sitting around just waiting for a little dressing up!
Glittered Halloween Candles
Who says sparkly can’t be spooky? In the spirit of decorating items you may already have, you can try this Ready, Set, Make® project from the Silhouette Design Store to create your own glitter and vinyl decals for flameless candles. I love the way that this arrangement glows and sparkles on my entryway table when I put it out each year!
Ready, Set, Make® projects are just like they sound. They are ready-made projects that feature a discounted bundle of designs and full, printable instructions to walk you through each step of the process. Once you purchase the bundle, you can view, download, or email the instructions from the project page, making it super easy to create the perfect project.
Trick or Treat Sign
If simple is more your Halloween-style, this Trick or Treat Arrow Sign by Jeana would add the perfect classy touch to your mantle or bookshelf. I think we can all agree that black vinyl stripes and a modern font are a great way to dress up any wooden shape.

3D Haunted House
Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about our papercrafting fans…this 3D haunted house by Kelly is amazing! A project like this can seem daunting at first, but she includes tons of tips, tricks, and step-by-step instructions here to create a one-of-a-kind piece you can display year after year. And who can resist decorations that look as good at night as they do in the middle of the day?
Burlap Halloween Pillows
When we’re talking about decorating for Halloween, we can’t neglect the front porch (afterall, we have to make it inviting for trick-or-treaters). I love these simple burlap pillows that Lindsey made for her porch bench using Silhouette Heat Transfer Material. There’s just something about burlap that screams autumn to me, and these pillows would have me begging for candy with the best of them (but let’s face it, pillows probably wouldn’t actually be necessary).
Glow-In-The-Dark Vinyl Pumpkins
No-carve pumpkins are all the rage right now and these glow-in-the-dark vinyl pumpkins are a fun spin on the trend and one of my very favorite Silhouette projects to date. With a bit of glow-in-the-dark paint and an intricate Halloween design cut from black vinyl, you can quickly turn regular white pumpkins into these surprising showpieces at night.
With all of these fun, festive options, I hope I’ve inspired you to break out your Silhouette machines and create some handmade Halloween decor! Tell me, what projects have you been working on for the upcoming holiday?
