Decorations don't just have to be for Christmas, create your own spooky ceramic decorations to hang up for Halloween.
I love using iron-on ceramic as it gives a lovely long-lasting finish as well as some dimension to the project. Thicker iron-on like glitter work best for this type of project, so bear that in mind when planning out your decorations!
YOU WILL NEED:
-Cricut Joy (You could use Maker or Explore Air 2 too!)
-Cricut Easy Press Mini

First, paint your ceramic shapes with two coats of paint, leave them to dry overnight.
Next, open a new project in Cricut Design Space and add your spooky images into the canvas. Resize each of the images to fit, then if the images are particularly small use the contour tool to remove any bits of detail that will potentially be lost. This will make your cut much cleaner.
If using Cricut joy feed your iron-on vinyl face down into your machine, for Maker or Explore users, pop your iron-on on to your mat and make sure it is well stuck down before popping it into the machine.
Choose the material setting for the iron-on you are using, the start your cut.
Once cut weed away the excess vinyl leaving your designs on the clear carrier sheet. Then cut around each design.
Warm-up your easy press mini to the second heat setting, then press each design onto the ceramic shape of your choice. Once cooled peel away the carrier sheet to reveal your design.
To finish cut a length of coloured ribbon and three it through the hole. Tie a knot so that your Halloween decoration can hang!
