Project #31- Vinyl"ed" Pumpkin.

Hi everyone.  Felling a little better today, so I decided to work on my Halloween decor.  I thought it would be fun (and different) to vinyl my pumpkins this year.  I found the BEST VINYL EVER!!!  It is such a breeze to use.  I get my vinyl from  If you visit their website, go to SHOP and look for vinyl supplies and signmaking in the left column, then the brand they recommend is called ORACAL (for scrapbooking).  It comes in 24 inch rolls that they can cut down to 12 inches.  And they last forever!
I am so excited about how my pumpkins turned out.  I used my Gypsy with my Cricut Expression.   The cartridges were Give a Hoot, for the border above the spiders, and Happy Hauntings for the spiders.  Enjoy.  To make the vinyl stick better, I wiped the pumpkin with Alcohol to get the dirt and oils off.
Enjoy...Bug Hugs!

 Here are the vinyl spiders I used.
