Cricut Halloween Decoration

It is almost Halloween and that means trick-or-treating, costumes, parties and decorations.

While surfing the web for some inspiration for Halloween decorations that I could make with my Cricut I came across a the artist, Lciaccio31, at  She made a beautiful centerpiece using her Cricut and I fell in love with it.  I totally "scraplifted" this idea and it is so cute.  It was time consuming but worth it.

I used the cartridge Paper Doll Dress Up for the entire project.  I've included a materials list as well as measurements for each element.  I had to eyeball it from a photo and there was a lot of trial and error so I thought I would share the information to make it easier to make yourself.
