How to Add Vinyl Words to Pumpkins

I have been wanting to try this craft for some time now. I see all these cute, customized Halloween pumpkins; and I've been wanting to make some forever. If I had known how easy peasy it was, I would have done it MUCH earlier. So now I'm sharing all the easy steps with you. Seriously, 15 minute craft, people. Adding vinyl to Halloween pumpkins is fun and easy to do.

How to Transfer Vinyl to Pumpkins:


Step 1: Select a Silhouette cut file. Size it to fit the pumpkin you are covering. Use the vinyl cut settings to cut out the file from black vinyl (you could also use, gold, orange, copper, silver or any color that matches your home decor). Weed the cut file.

Step 2: Use transfer tape to transfer the cut file to the pumpkin. Pumpkins aren't smooth so it make take a bit of playing with to get the placement flat. Keep gently working at it until you get the cut file where you want. Use a flat edge tool to transfer the design to the pumpkin.

Step 3: Gently and slowly remove the transfer tape. Use your fingers to smooth down any bumps in the vinyl and to ensure the vinyl is pressed into all the cracks and crevices of the pumpkin. I tried this step with both a smooth pumpkin and a glittered pumpkin and the vinyl goes on smoothly on both surfaces. YAY!
