Halloween Spiral – I Can’t Stop Making Them

This Halloween Spiral decoration is cute and fun.  And it is easy to make.   Now  I can’t stop making them.  And I found so many ways to arrange them.

You can make this Halloween Spiral bigger if you want, just change the size in Design Space but I designed it to make four per sheet.   Make a whole bunch  of them and decorate for your Halloween Party  or classroom.

Martha Stewart inspired this decoration.  I have her “tool” to cut them by hand but, as you know, I can’t cut a straight line if my life depended on it.  That’s why I own a Cricut.

What you will need

        • Cardstock 
        • glue gun
Flower from Halloween Spiral
Paper Selection

The cut file is very simple and can be cut from anything.  I have designed it so that four of the spirals can be cut from on piece of 12 X 12 cardstock.  So you are in total control of your final project.  Use your imagination.

If you use one sided paper, like the orange ones, then the white side adds more color.  But solids work too.  I really like the glitter paper and want to try vellum next.

Assembly
Once they are cut, be careful taking them from the mat.  Depending on your paper they can tear easily.

Starting with the center cuts, join the points together in the center with a glue gun.  I tried liquid glue and it just isn’t strong enough or dry fast enough.  Then work your way out, alternating front and back until the spiral is done.  I didn’t glue them together until I made the last one below.  That way I had the ability to try different arrangements.  I have tried lots and I am trying more.  I will add them when I do.

They can be hung individually or combined in many ways, as you can see, to make a decoration
