DIY Coasters are one of my favorite projects to make. Not only are they useful but they are a perfect gift to give to friends and family any time of year. I love changing out my coasters in our home with each holiday and season to help add an element of holiday spirit to our home. I also love making these as gifts. I have a few friends who are obsessed with Halloween, so I thought it would be fun to make these DIY coaster for Halloween. Ghosts, spiderwebs, Frankenstein, and Jack-O-Lanterns!
DIY Coasters for Halloween: Free SVG Files For Cricut
Halloween is always so fun. I love the bright orange, black and purple that you see so often around Halloween. It makes decorating your home lots of fun. Plus, you can never go wrong with carving a jack-o-lantern or even painting one up real nice. It is a family tradition we do each year, about a week or two before Halloween. It has become more of a competition as the kids have gotten older, to see who can create the most unique jack-o-lantern.
Creative And Fun DIY Coasters for Halloween
If you are somewhat new to crafting you might find these DIY coasters to be pretty easy to follow. I also think this is a great starter project for Cricut users as well. It isn’t complicated like some of the more advanced projects out there. You need just a handful of supplies and the directions are really easy to follow. You can create unique and glitter bombed coasters that will look stunning displayed in your home or office. These are Halloween themed coasters but you can always change up the designs once you learn how to do it.
The epoxy gives it a nice glaze style finish that looks really nice. Have fun and play around with colors and glitter and images when you make these.

Why I Love My Cricut For DIY Projects
If you do not own a Cricut yet but are considering, know I highly recommend it. It is a professional cutter machine that can do it all. From making fun DIY coasters like these to creating cards, invitations, stencils for painting, shirt vinyl, and so much more. You can truly do it all, and it is a pretty reasonable price when you think of all the things you can do with this one machine.
It can cut delicate paper to fabric and more. It truly allows you to really use your imagination and create items that truly are unique and one of a kind. I have really gotten into using my Cricut over the past year, and if you have one, I suggest doing more projects. It is so addictive and fun and helps pass the time. I made a ton of holiday gifts last year using my Cricut and they turned out looking like it was store bought items.
I hope you all enjoy this easy DIY for coasters. If you create some make sure to tweet me or even share a picture on my Facebook page so I can see your awesome creations. Happy Halloween!
- The FREE Halloween SVG files for your Cricut
- A Cricut Explore with Design Space
- Weeding Tool the Pen Pen in my favorite!
- 2 part Epoxy, I like Art Resin
- Silicone Coaster Molds
- Either 651 or 631 vinyl
- First measure your molds then mix a small amount according to the directions on the bottle and pour into the bottom of the mold, set aside and allow to harden.
- Use your Cricut to cut your images using the size you measured as a guide, then weed and layer them using transfer paper.
- After your first layer of epoxy has hardened, place your layered image onto the epoxy and then mix and add more epoxy to fill with epoxy right before the top of the coaster mold.
- Allow hardening completely before removing from the mold
Note: I left the backing on my transfer paper when I placed on the epoxy, it is clear so you can’t see it. I also added glitter to my epoxy before pouring.
