Anyone have a little one obsessed with Halloween? I guess the combination of candy and dressing up like a princess is hard to beat. She also likes decorating our house for Halloween, something that I unfortunately do not have much time for these days. I did manage to create this easy Chevron Pumpkin decor using an existing frame. My Silhouette made it simple and quick.
- Card stock for background
- Chevron card stock for pumpkin
Begin by cleaning the frame thoroughly. Cut the background card stock the size of the frame opening. Cut out a pumpkin shape in the chevron card stock. I used a cut file that I purchased from the Silhouette store, but you can use any stencil. I just tried to chose a pumpkin shape that had a few openings to allow the orange background to show. Glue the pumpkin in the center of the background paper. Insert the image on the paper into the frame. Close frame opening.
Cut out ‘Happy Halloween’ onto the vinyl. Be sure to measure the frame and cut the words the right size the first time! Again, I cut my words with the Silhouette to make it easy.
Apply the vinyl to the front of the frame. Use it on a wall or in a tablescape or mantel!

I especially like the grouping with the candle and the l’il spider to go along with the artwork.
