I saw these cute Jack-o-Lantern Halloween Goblets as a prop in a magazine years ago and thought they would be a neat Halloween craft to do with the kids this time of year. With some adhesive black vinyl (like you find near the Cricut supplies in craft stores) and some orange juice or punch, you can turn any wine glass into a cute jack-o-lantern.
What I love about the Cricut adhesive vinyl is that it easily peels off and leaves no residue. So if you don’t want the wine glasses to permanently have a Jack-o-Lantern face on it, just peel it off before washing. This craft is a great way to use up extra vinyl scraps.
- Wine Glasses (These Polycarbonite Wine Glasses are great for using with kids because they are shatter-resistant.)
- Black Adhesive-Backed Vinyl
- Sharpie Marker
Turn the vinyl over and use the Sharpie to draw the Jack-o-Lantern eyes, nose, and mouth. (1/2 inch is a good size for the eyes and nose.)
Cut out the pieces you drew on the vinyl.
For placement on the glass, I found it easiest to start with the mouth and work your way up. Peel backing and stick in place on the glass.
Kids will love this Halloween craft because they can give their their Spooky Goblets whatever personality they like – whether scary or silly. Younger children may need help with the cutting, but older children can certainly complete this Halloween craft all on their own.
Use an orange juice blend or an orange punch to fill the goblets so it looks like a Jack-o-Lantern.
