Happy Halloween Silhouette – Quick and Easy

I became fascinated with digital cutting stencils when visiting my daughter-in-law this fall.  I took a class from her and wanted to try one of my design, so came up with this quicky Halloween decor using clip art and fonts on my computer.  I jazzed it up with a bit of extra painting touches.  You can do this as a stenciled design if you have a digital cutter like a Silhouette or Cricut.  I’ve also provided a drawing and instructions if you want to paint the regular way.

The design is painted with DecoArt Americana Acrylics  Pattern includes supply list, instructions, closeup photo.  If you have a cutter you can download the jpg files and use them to cut your own stencils.

I’ve painted it on a simple pine board… a 1″x12″ from the local home improvement store, and you can have the cut it into 12″ lengths.  (NOTE:  a 1×12 is really only 3/4″ thick x 11-1/2″ wide, so your result will be 11-1/2″x12″. If you are painting the design, simply use a 12×12 canvas.


You can also purchase the pattern in digital format or print format at  DecorativePaintingStore.com

If you have a Silhouette, Cricut, or other digital cutter you should be able to load these into your software and cut the stencil for this design using Oramask Stencil Vinyl and Transfer Paper.
