Halloween Tricks. I am so excited to share this project! I am even more excited to be a part of Cupcake Wishes and Birthday Dreams’ annual 13 Days of Handmade Halloween!!! I have to tell you all, though, I had planned on sharing how I made these amazing cement tombstones…sadly, those were a big fat fail, and I scrambled to come up with a new project last minute…and I am pretty sure I love this project even more than I ever could have loved the tombstones.
Iron On Vinyl (I used Cricut glitter iron on vinyl)
Muslin Bags (Mine were from Oriental Trading Company)
Spooky Halloween Rings or Candies (Caramel Creams were a hit)
Iron or Heat Press Machine
When I realized I would have to start a new project from scratch, I opened up Cricut Design Space. I can almost always find project inspiration there. I browsed and found a cute little skeleton…and my wheels started turning…I knew I had muslin bags and a drawer full of Cricut iron on vinyl, I also knew I had a doctor’s appointment with three of my
flying monkeys sweet gentlemen, and I knew that appointment typically takes FOREVER…so, a quiet activity might be a sanity saver.
I took the skeleton and ungrouped and separated the body from the limbs…and set up a tic tac toe “hashtag”. (I saved the project, so you don’t have to slice and separate, etc) I sent it to the Cricut to cut, and spent forever weeding it. My old eyes cannot see the cut lines in glitter vinyl. Then, I ironed it onto the muslin bags.
Next, I added 5 of each ring/candy style in the bags. Finally, just before the boys ran amuck, amuck, amuck at their appointment, I pulled a few of those little bags of sanity savers out of my purse, and harmony was restored to the office again.
The doc LOVED them, so I gave her one for her son. I actually think I will make some as class treats or party favor bags too. They were pretty easy to make, and so cool!

My Cricut looks at me longingly everyday and I think It’s high time I blow the dust off and get started. This is so cute and simple and my granddaughter would love it.
Thank you! My kids loved it, I love that they aren’t glued to their phones/ipods…and it doesn’t matter if I don’t have paper or a pen, they can still play! I am going to have to make more!
