  1. Cut the hanger.svg. I cut mine out of orange card stock plus 1 chipboard to make it extra sturdy. Assemble by sandwiching the chip board in between the solids.
  2. Cut the hanger panel and ink the edges. I stitched mine on the sewing machine which is optional and apply.
  3. Cut the box.svg and stitch if you like. Assemble and apply to the hanger. I did not make mine flush to the bottom so I could add the bats.
  4. Cut and ink the chevron pattern, stitch if you like and apply to the box.
  5. Cut and assemble the cat files. Attach to the door hanger with foam tape. Cut the bats and apply to the hanger.
  6. Cut the rectangle and stamp the Happy Halloween sentiment.
  7. Add some twine, I used Trendy Twine and add a button, I used We R Memory Keepers.
  8. Cut the candy wrappers, layer and apply to the candy bars. For some of them I used the wrapper.svg file and did a break apart and deleted the face.
  9. Fill up your spooky door hanger and hang away!

Design Tips

  • I used We R Memory Keepers Bewitched papers for this project. Be careful not to do too much mixing of patterns – it may look a little busy.
  • When stitching do not stitch over adhesive. It may damage your sewing machine. Don’t be afraid to stitch on papers – it’s very easy to do.

Make someone’s day by creating them a spooky door hanger. Hope you are enjoying all these fun Halloween projects!
