This October, we are getting super creative with Design Bundles to create a fun range of Halloween decorations for our home! Who doesn’t love Halloween? I have always enjoyed the build-up to Halloween which culminates in an exciting and fun day for all ages! It is a day where everyone just lets loose and dresses in silly or spooky costumes to impress. Some people will spend days decorating their homes getting into the theme.
I am super excited to connect my readers to Design Bundles, who began in July 2016 and since then, they have built a customer base of over one million users. They provide an affordable digital design marketplace such as Design Bundles, Graphics, Templates, Mock Ups, Patterns, Illustrations and Craft Files from many of their talented independent designers to their customers. There are over 150,000 outstanding Marketplace products to browse from and customers could save big money on their Curated Design Bundles with up to 96% off the Recommended Retail Price.
Looking at the marketplace, there are so many Halloween designs to choose from, and I have managed to narrow down a few favourite graphics. I hope this will inspire you with a range of ideas you could do at home with your children or yourself during these times of pandemic. Even better, if you have an interest in papercraft, making your own scrapbook or already own a Cricut machine at home (more on this below), this would be a bonus for you! Design Bundles is a great website for you to source for your next design at a low price!
Before I go into my Halloween decorations, I would like to touch a bit on the Cricut machine. This portable machine is easily found in hobby shops and online, and some models can go over £300, depending on their features. This machine can cut intricate details with ultimate precision on paper, cards, fabric etc, to creates perfect cards, envelopes, boxes, 3-D papercrafts, fine snowflakes and so much more. If you don’t own a Cricut machine, don’t despair as you can still use the design for many purposes or just use the traditional method – a pen knife to cut. This is what I did for all the designs below.
The first thing that came into my mind is a Halloween banner. Are you bored with shop-bought banners? Yes, definitely for me! I like making my own banners and even made my own coca-cola fairy light banner for my garden! I picked out these Slot Halloween cards design by Natalia Chernyshova. With the current uncertainty for the future and many places imposing tougher restrictions, we are not inviting any friends over, but instead, I am using the designs to make into a unique banner. First, I printed the designs on white cards and cut them into different shapes! To add some sparkle, sprinkle all over with glitter. Thread with black and orange laces and hold it by the orange/green wires. I also combined another design by VaraNa Art to create this banner.
Then for table placement, I found this beautiful Halloween bundle from CuttingLineStore which comes with invitation, place card, flavour box and spider webs. I printed this flavour box designed on A3 size cardboard and voila. This is such a clever design! It looks great and impressive!
I also love the spider place card design! It is so simple, yet so impressive! Don’t you love it?
Also, not forgetting printing out a few cute, hand-drawn Halloween themed colouring sheets by Dansie Design for my children to keep them busy for a bit! This bundle also comes with a Monster Face Mash Up activity which I didn’t include in the photos.
To decorate our door, I downloaded this Halloween farmhouse sign by Vero Lettering Shop with our fabulous looking pumpkin! You can either frame it like how I did below or simply add lace on the borders to make it look like a frame.
This Halloween might be a bit different to Halloweens in the past, but don’t let this pandemic ruin your day! Go and celebrate this festive event within your household using the designs to create a fun memorable day in 2020!
