Bloody Vinyl Shoe Print Staircase – Cricut A Frightful Affair

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.

Vinyl + footprints = creepy goodness

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.

This red vinyl scrap is perfect for these blood drops.

I used the A Frightful AffairCricut cartridge for the shoe prints and blood but you could trace a shoe and freehand the droplets.

You can do it!  It’s just ONE STEP at a time!

Transfer tape makes it easy.  I reused this piece for each of the footprints.

Now for the blood work.

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.

At last!  Creepified stairs!

My family doesn’t think a thing in the world about me adding bloody footprints to the stairs. Now THAT is weird. LOL!

Go get your spooky craft on!
