Get in the Halloween spirit with Glow-in-the-Dark Vinyl

October 10, 2022


I absolutely love the spooky Halloween season. Nothing is better than the weather, the costumes, and the décor around this time of year. I especially love all of the fun glow-in-the-dark décor, so I came up with some quick and easy ideas using Cricut’s new glow-in-the-dark vinyl. Follow along to see how to spookify your home with these Halloween inspired creations.

Glow-in-the-dark jack-o-lantern banner

This jack-o-lantern banner adds the perfect amount of spooky to any home. This took about 30 minutes to make and you can customize it however you want. Although I chose to use black cardstock and glow-in-the-dark vinyl to make the faces pop, you could use orange cardstock or alternate which faces are glow-in-the-dark. The best part about this project is you can make it for your home, or for that exciting Halloween party you’re going to. Either way, it will be a showstopper!

Halloween glass tumbler

I had an extra glass tumbler from a recent project, and I knew I wanted it to have a Halloween vibe. There are so many cute Halloween designs on Design Space, and I picked the perfect one for me. I was able to customize the design so the stars and moon would be glow-in-the-dark and the rest would be black. Eventually, I decided to use removeable vinyl on this glass, so I can remove the design once Halloween has passed. Overall, I thought this was a super simple and cute project!

3D Pumpkins

Maybe you don’t want everything in your home to be overly glow-in-the-dark. If so, these 3D pumpkins are exactly what you’re looking for. These are perfect to put on your desk, counter, bookshelf, or anywhere you want to bring in some fall vibes. The pumpkins are made out of cardstock, and the leaves are glow-in-the-dark vinyl to add just a little bit of excitement.

Spooky eyes door decor

These spooky eyes are perfect for inside your home, or out on your front door. I chose to put the vinyl on black cardstock and freehand the shapes. Additionally, you can also choose to add more or make them smaller or larger depending on the size of your door. Just make sure you remember where you put the eyes…I forgot the first night I put them up, and it gave me a fright!
