Hexagon Jack-O-Lanterns {tutorial}

This post was first seen over on See Vanessa Craft. Affiliate links are used for your convenience.

A few weeks ago I was visiting See Vanessa Crafts. I shared these cute Hexagon Jack-O-Lanterns. Just in case you missed it over there, I wanted to share it here as well. This is such a cute way to greet all the little Trick or Treaters in a few weeks. :) By the way these pumpkins might look a little familiar if you’ve followed my blog for awhile. You can see my lighted pumpkin sign. here. I love repurposing & reusing what I already have. :) So, today I’d love to show you how I made these cute Hexagon Jack-O-Lanterns. Let's get started! :)

Cricut Maker vs. Silhouette Cameo 3

This post is brought to you by Cricut. Affiliate links are used for your convenience. All opinions are mine. :)

I also hope you’ve been following along with my Cricut Question Series. :) If not, you can find question 1 here & question 2 here & question 3 here & question 4 here & question 5 here & question 6 here & question 7 here & question 8 here & question 9 here & question 10 here & question 11 here. Whew! ha! Today we are going to tackle question #12. :)

Just a little history on my cutting machine obsession. Yes, it’s an obsession for me! haha! ;) I firmly believe with the right tools you can do & create anything! I’m not the most creative or the most crafty person, but with my Silhouette and most recently, with my Cricut, I have created & can create amazing things. Annnnnd I know you can, too! Deciding which machine to purchase is a huge decision. These machines aren’t cheap! It really depends on what you what to make. Do you want to cut mostly vinyl? Fabric? Or are you a paper crafter? Taking all of this into account will help you decide which machine you feel would fit your needs the best. Today I am going to share my completely honest opinions are two amazing machines the Silhouette Cameo 3 and the brand new, Cricut Maker. Yes, they are BOTH amazing with their own pros and cons.

Cricut Maker vs. SilhouetteCameo #CricutMaker #SilhouetteCameo

As you might of guessed, our final question is: How is the Cricut different from other cutting machines?
