Quick DIY Halloween Wine Glasses with Cricut
Every year on Halloween, the husband and I get about 1,000 kids trick-or-treating at our door. Yeah. That’s not a typo. 1,000. It’s super fun, but it’s also a lot of work and it really helps when we can have friends and family over to help pass out candy. So I’m trying to entice friends to come over by using my Cran-Apple Cider Sangria served in these super cute and easy DIY Halloween Wine Glasses that I made with my new Cricut Explore Air 2!
I think it takes a minimum of 3 people to pass out that much candy. During the candy rush hour, it takes 2 people to man the door and throw candy at kids, and then it’s nice to have a third person on deck to step in for bathroom breaks, refill wine glasses, and so we can eat dinner in shifts.
Usually my friend Wendy spends Halloween with us, but she’s in Hawaii this year so we’re on our own. (Wendy: If you had come this year, I would’ve made you your own Witchy Wendy wine glass! I hope Hawaii was worth it!)
So who wants to come help us pass out candy? I’ll either be making this Pink Beet Pesto Pasta, my favorite Mac and Cheese recipe, or this Baked Nacho Casserole for dinner. It’ll probably be the Mac and Cheese because it will go great with the Cran-Apple Cider Sangria!
Ok, now let’s get back to these cute glasses! We have SO many glasses, that I really didn’t think we needed new ones for Halloween, so I took some wine glasses we already had and used my new Cricut Explore Air™ 2 and added some silly Halloween phrases to them.
With the Cricut Explore Air 2, it took me about 20 minutes to make these wine glasses since the Cricut Explore Air 2 cuts 2x FASTER! And my husband thought I BOUGHT them! Plus, when the holiday is over, all I have to do is peel off the vinyl and I have regular, ol’ boring wine glasses again … which I can then decorate for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and Valentine’s Day!
If you want to make you’re own More Boos Please or Drink Up Witches glasses, all you need is your Cricut Explore Air™ 2 and a few supplies:
- Cricut Explore Air™ 2
- Cricut Design Space
- Cutting Mat
- Gold or White Vinyl
- Transfer Tape
- Wine Glasses
- Cran-Apple Cider Sangria
First, you’ll need to layout the text and images in Cricut Design Space. I used the Adobe Gothic Std font, I made all of the words separate text files, and I used witch and ghost graphics that I found in Cricut Design Space and then turned off some of the background layers so I just got a basic witch and ghost shape.
I made sure to measure my glasses to figure out how wide I could make the longest word (witches) and then based the height and the other words and images off of that. Then I hit the “go” button and set up the file for cutting. I made sure to select the vinyl material on the Cricut Explore Air 2 machine.
And I selected the 2X Faster cutting option since I wasn’t cutting anything too intricate or detailed and then hit the final Go and WOW did it blaze through the cutting! It was so much faster than my original Cricut Explore.
And can we talk about the new mint color? SO pretty! I love it so much I’m going to let it sit out on my desk full time which hopefully means I will use it more!
Next, I used Transfer Tape to transfer the vinyl word phrases onto the glasses. Every single time I work with vinyl I think to myself, I don’t need to use transfer tape … I can just wing it and apply things manually. Every single time. And then every single time when it gets to this point I’m wondering why I ever think that and then go and get the Transfer Tape!
If you make your witch and ghost small enough, you can put them on the front, but I made mine slightly bigger, so they went on the backs. And if you make 4 different phrases/graphics, then everyone can have a different glass and they’ll be able to keep track of which drink belongs to them.
Here are some other phrases you would make for Halloween:
- Cheers Witches
- Happy Hallo-wine
- This Might Be Boos
- Trick or Wine
