Ceramic Halloween Plates

Welcome. I had so much fun making these DIY dollar store ceramic Halloween plates.

If you’ve visited here before, you all know how much I love dollar store crafts and my Cricut!

As an avid crafter I love being able to make things for my home or as gifts. Cricut allows me to do that and so much more.

Card making and paper crafts are two of my favorite hobbies and Cricut opens up a world of possibilities in this area.

 So I am thrilled to be teaming up with over 40 bloggers to share Halloween projects all made using the Cricut AND all made in under 15 minutes!

This is part of the Craft Lightning challenge hosted by The Country Chic Cottage,  30 Minute Crafts and 100 Directions 

For my project, I created quick and easy DIY Ceramic Halloween Plates.

Let me show you how simple it is!

I used my Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine for these DIY Halloween Plates.

The plates are a good size, I believe a 12″ plate. I used my Cricut Explore Air, but you can also use your Cricut Maker for this fun Halloween decor.

As the challenge is under 15 minutes, I stuck to silhouette style images that were one color and layer. 

However,  you certainly could use images that are more detailed if you like.

I really like the contrast of the white against the black.

I went with an owl, a skull, skeleton and a witch; all classic Halloween images.

You can find so many free SVG images on Pinterest.

However, if you want thousands of images without having to search check out Cricut Access Premium

Just make the image the size you want.

I found for the plates about 4.5″ was a good size to fit in the center of the plate.

Adhere the vinyl to the plate using a credit card to remove any air bubbles. Now for the best part.

Cricut is giving one lucky reader the new Cricut Maker.

This baby is on my Christmas list along with the new Heat Press.

Hello, Did you use permanent vinyl? Did you sealed it? Thanks

Hi! I used temporary vinyl, as I like to change things a lot. Also, I did not seal them as I was going to hang them. Thanks for visiting!
