Wooden Halloween Signs

The Cricut gets used for  more than just paper crafts in this house. We also cut things out for Jim to take downstairs and use for woodworking purposes! He will ask for a shape or go through the handbooks looking for a shape and then I cut it out. That cut then gets taken downstairs and turned into a pattern.
Check out the Halloween signs Jim has made this year! We used the Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge.


This first one was a gift to Jim's Mom.
Pretty cool!
The wood is pallet wood!
Jim hand painted the words onto each sign.



These three are an order for a friend.
I think the witch turned out pretty cool.
I'm thinking I might need to cut her out for some cards...

The ghost, the cat, and the witch head all came off the Happy Hauntings cartridge.

There is one other thing that Jim made.
This witch was also originally a Cricut cut.
He did alter the cut a little bit and I think the change is great.
If you don't know what the cut looks like, you would have no idea.

I think she's AWESOME! and wait until you see where she ended up!!!


The spindle is part of one I picked up a few years back.
I actually think our larger sized spindle collection is dwindling.
Oh darn! A reason to shop for "junk"
LOVE IT!!!

Do you use your cutting machine to help with other projects?
Did you decorate for Halloween yet? 
We decorated this weekend. I can't wait to share!!

Hugs!
