Halloween Subway Art

I’m technically cheating, since I made this last Halloween.

But I didn’t blog it, so it’s fair game!  Now you will also be able to forgive the less than stellar photographs, since I did this prior to picking up some blogging and photography tips. Check out my Halloween Subway Art!

Halloween Subway Art

One of my first purchases for my Cricut machine was an electronic cartridge, Word Collage.  It has quite a few fun cuts, but I started with the Halloween cut. I made this prior to discovering the wonderful world of freezer paper stenciling or vinyl, so I ended up cutting the design out on cardstock, and gingerly painting through the design to canvas.

Of course there was some bleed through, but overall it worked pretty well – only required a few minor fixes! I used it myself for a bit before I sold it in my Etsy shop – I’m happy my art was able to help someone else get in the Halloween spirit! :)

What kind of decorations do you like to put out for Halloween?

  1. Oh that turned out so amazing! it looks great and very festive! I love the colors too!

  2. That isn’t cheating at all; it’s still your creation! :) This is such an innovative idea! It totally looks like something that would be in a well-known department store. I’m excited to head on over to your Etsy shop and see what else there is to love!

  3. I have to confess, I didn’t decorate for Halloween at all this year. I gave all my decorations to my Daughter. Your sign turned out great!

  4. OM Gosh – I love it. I think it’s such a cute idea and I have a perfect place to hang something like that in my living room, too!

  5. I think this is really cool . I think wooden signs are awesome. Thanks for sharing your creation with us.

  6. How cute! I love the bright bold colors on the black. It makes it stand out! Great idea!

  7. I love that idea – I could see it working for so many occasions with different words as well- I might have to try and do one for Christmas.

    I’m ashamed to admit that we don’t really decorate for Halloween. We really want to, but this time of year always seems to be a hard time to shell out cash on decorations. That’s a really fun one though!

    • I’ve never done it, but I hear that you should always buy the decorations AFTER the holiday, because you get them super cheap and you are all set for next year!

  9. Your sign turned out amazing looking! It is somewhere between being in your face and not being in your face–perfect!! This would be great to hang in a store window!!

  10. I love the sign, very creative way to get the job done! I only have a few figurines out.

  11. Totally cool! I can’t get enough of Halloween Subway art! and the colors you chose makes it looks so festive! Thank you for sharing at the Fluster Buster Party. Lizy Party co host

  12. I’d be so afraid I would mess that up, but I really love how it came out. It looks like such a pro job!

  13. I love subway art! It is on my list to-do for my children’s rooms this year.

  14. That looks amazing, I love the idea of decorating but i never seem to get around to it

  15. We don’t do much decoration for Halloween except for our pumpkins. I’d love to have some subway art up on the walls next year.

  16. Very cool. I would love that. And it would look good on my wall.

  17. Now that is really cool! I may do something like this for turkey day :D

  18. I guess since Halloween is over now we can do something instead for Thanksgiving. I’m no good at doing stuff like this but this came out really great. Good job!

  19. Wow, this Halloween Subway Art turned out really well. I love that you used different fonts… that’s one thing I really enjoy doing.

  20. I haven’t made my own decorations in a long time. You really give me dive to get off my butt and do it!!

  21. I love to put decorations out for the holidays but my husband, not so much. I love these and would definitely put them up during Halloween. They are very creative and definitely a conversation piece.

  22. I love that!! I really need to start getting more creative and do things like this.

  23. I love this!! You did such a good job and now I want to make one for Christmas!!

  24. I did not much decor this year, pumpkins and some Halloween stuff of our table. You got nice Word Collage, I think trying this next year.

  25. I LOVE THIS! Thank you for sharing at our TGIF Link Party at A Peek Into My Paradise. This post will be featured at this weeks party and pinned to our party board. I hope you will be back to link up another awesome post this week!
