Decorating Pumpkins with Adhesive Vinyl

Roeshel of DIY Show Off shows how to use our black adhesive vinyl to create stunning Halloween décor using pumpkins! Pumpkin carving season is here but let's face it, carving pumpkins is a messy, long process that doesn't always result in the cutest pumpkins. Not only that, they rot so much faster once they've been carved. Why not use your Silhouette Cameo and adhesive vinyl to create stunning home decor? Roeshel of DIY Show Off shows how to use our black adhesive vinyl to create stunning Halloween décor using pumpkins!

I started by creating my design. I purchased a deer silhouette and frame from the online store and sized them in my Silhouette Studio designer software to fit my pumpkins.

After my design was created, it was time to send to cut. OraCal 651 cuts with the settings blade 1, speed 8, and thickness 9. If you are using a Cricut Explore, you will want to use the setting "viny". Once my design was cut, I weeded away the excess and cavities, then I squeegeed my application tape onto my design. Remember to start from the center and squeeze out to the edges to remove any bubbles.

Now it was time to apply to the pumpkin. Since the pumpkin is a round object with ridges and bumps and far from smooth, I expected to see the bumps in the vinyl. Don't worry, I was able to smooth most of them out with my finger. The bumps that wouldn't smooth out completely do not take away from the design.

You can make these pumpkins look any way you wish! I love seeing fall decor on porches that reflect the house number, family name, or something similar. What better way than to use vinyl?
