Halloween is creeping nearer than these vinyl bloody footprints, so I decided that it was time to take my staircase from dull to CSI worthy.
I’m keeping it super simple by using one 12×24 sheet of black vinyl and a little remnant of red for the blood droplets. I cut the footprints at 8.5″. I suggest measuring your stairs for a good fit for you.
Need vinyl? I like to buy mine from Expressions Vinyl.
I used the A Frightful AffairCricut cartridge for the shoe prints and blood but you could trace a shoe and freehand the droplets.
Transfer tape makes it easy. I reused this piece for each of the footprints.

After I had all the shoe prints down, I added the blood. I’m using an outdoor vinyl here. I’m not using it for any particular reason, I just happened to have it within reach. It does have a nice glossy look to it though. Perfect for the blood. Icky…but appropriate.
My family doesn’t think a thing in the world about me adding bloody footprints to the stairs. Now THAT is weird. LOL!
