With Halloween just around the corner (SAY WHAT?!) we thought it would be fun to create some ghost emoji couple mugs and I love how they turned out! They’re beyond easy to make and would also look fab at a Halloween shindig! Or you could just make them as a cute gift for your other half!

YOU WILL NEED:

White vinyl // Black vinyl // Pink vinyl // Mugs or glass ware // Cricut Explore* //

*You have two options here, you can use a Cricut Explore to cut out the ghost emoji and letters, or you can cut your vinyl out free hand and grab some vinyl letters if you don’t have a machine! If you’re going to be using the Cricut though, grab the templates here: Emoji body , emoji face , emoji tongue , his boo , her boo and upload them to the Cricut Design Space.

STEP 1:

Cut out your ghost emoji templates using whichever method you’re choosing, then place the white vinyl on first. Rub in place so that it adheres well to the mug.

STEP 2:

Next, add on the black vinyl of the ghosts face, again rubbing down hard onto the mug.

We are super super excited that today is the very first day of October and you know what that means right? HALLOWEEN!!! Having lunch with a friend last week, she asked us how we managed to stay colorful for the autumnal weather and whilst we admit it is a bit more of a challenge, bright bold colours are definitely are in for fall!

This got us thinking about weddings and how we could apply our love of colour to autumn/ winter weddings, so where better to start than with pumpkins. We have scoured the web for 12 of our favourite colorful pumpkin DIY’s and we promise there is not an ounce of orange in sight.

1. Pastel Pumpkin Cookies:  For any of you that may be unfamiliar with the work of Deanna from Obsessive Cookie Designer, she is a cookie extraordinaire, making fancy custom sugar cookies for all to enjoy. These candy colored pumpkin cookies are a daydream and the perfect way to see in one of our favourite holidays.

3. Sequin Polka Dot Pumpkins: Polka dots are pretty much my favourite pattern so imagine my excitement when I saw it on a pumpkin! The gold against the white is so pretty and classy, whilst the sequins add a touch of glamour making it a great decor choice for a wedding.
