If you’ve been following along here or on our Instagram page, you’ll know that using Iron On on Paper Napkins is my new favorite project to make with my Cricut machines! I recently styled an adorable Trick or Treat Party perfect for kids this Halloween using a ton of DIY Halloween Party Decor with my Cricut Maker and I made the cutest “Happy Halloween” napkins with iron on. They’re SO easy to make, and when you use cheap paper napkins, you can create a special personalized touch to your party with just a couple of Halloween party supplies.
I also used my Martha Stewart Cricut Explore Air 2 to throw an awesome Halloween party that included a detailed cake topper and other great DIY Halloween Party Decorations, using some of the awesome Martha Stewart Halloween designs that are in Cricut Design Space. These spiders are a central theme in the Martha Stewart Celebrations line at Michaels, which made it easy to tie in the Cricut designs. The paper napkins are available in the Halloween Martha Stewart Celebrations collections, available exclusively at Michaels.
Supplies Needed to Make DIY Custom Foil Napkins for Halloween
You can use regular vinyl for these DIY Halloween napkins, and they’ll turn out just as cute! But if you like a little shiny (just like me!), the foil iron-on is great purchase. You can use it for tons of DIY Cricut Ideas, including a Personalized Wood Tray and a DIY Monogrammed Christmas Tote.
How to Make DIY Halloween Napkins
Since the spider image is available to everyone in Cricut Design Space, you can access my spiders that I sized for a cocktail sized napkin here:
In addition to the spiders sized for napkins, you’ll also find spiders sized for these DIY Halloween Coasters over at Everyday Party Magazine.
You can hide the designs that you don’t need by clicking the little “eye” icon next to the shape.
Although you really won’t be able to tell, it’s a good habit to always mirror your images when using Iron-On.
Preheat your EasyPress to the lowest setting – 250 degrees.
After your spider designs are cut, peel away the extra vinyl that you won’t need. Be very careful to keep the thin spider legs attached to the backing sheet – I learned this from experience. Ha!
Using the Cricut Iron On Protective Sheet between the EasyPress and your design, press the spider for approximately 10 seconds or a few seconds longer if needed until the spiders are adhered. Remove clear backing sheet.
That’s it, you’re done! With the addition of gold flatware, those Gold Foil Spiders really will tie into your party decor!
