Succulents are my favorites among the indoor plants. I almost always buy those live ones. But let me be frank, I don’t know how to take care of them and they die within a few days after I put them up.

 

The solution, shift over to faux succulents. They are almost as beautiful but they don’t need the care as the live ones.

 

The tradition of giving handmade gifts to your loved ones for Halloween or any other festival has been in practice from time immemorial. And, if you can give them personalized gifts, it is surely something they would love.

Easy DIy Cricut Project

Wash and clean oui jars. Paint the jars white. Let dry. You will need to put two coats on these.

 

 

Place the files into Cricut design space. You will not need to mirror the image as you are using adhesive vinyl. Make the file less than 2 inches in height. This is what will fit the oui jar.

 

Place the vinyl on a blue mat with its shiny side up. Use the fine- point blade, set to vinyl setting, and cut. Once cut, weed the design. For the ghostbuster specifically, it will need to be 1 inch in height to fit right around the jar.

Once the jars are dry. Take the weeded design, cut a piece of transfer tape in almost the same size as the design.

Remove the backing from the transfer tape and place transfer tape over the design, with the sticky side facing down. Using the scraper, rub the design over the front and back of the design to eliminate any creases. Then, starting from a corner, peel back the transfer tape. Go slow and be sure that the design adheres to your transfer tape.

 

Press this to the oui jar and smooth it down with your scraper, again to eliminate any creases.

 

Peel back the transfer tape slowly so that the design sticks to the jar.

 

Once the designs are on both jars add potting soil or rocks to the jar. Fill to the top. Add in a faux succulent.

 

For the ghost logo, follow the process above but then place the red ghost on white cardstock and trim all the way around with scissors. Hot glue this to the lollipop stick.

 

Add this to one of the jars.
