make it: Witch Mask with Cricut

DIY Witch Mask - Printables for Kids - Halloween Last minute costumes | Small for BIg

Welcome to Small for Big! This blog is the other half of Smallful.
Small for Big is full of inspiration, playful design finds, and DIY projects. Read on for instructions to make your Cricut Explore project…

Something wicked this way comes! Ok, actually I think this witch is a little less wicked witch and a little more goofy great aunt witch. I suppose it’s the glasses and the goofy hair!

The witch mask is quick to make, just six pieces to assemble, a couple of folds, and you’re ready to gently scare everyone you know while cackling through the house!

This project was designed for the Cricut Explore. But you can make it without the machine too – scroll to the bottom of the post to see how to make this printable without a Cricut machine (and with access to your handy dandy scissors!).

  • Using the Print Then Cut option in your Cricut Design Space™ software, print all of your mask pieces onto 8.5” x 11” cardstock.
  • Follow the steps in Cricut Design Space™ software to cut out the pieces.


  • Begin with the largest piece, the face. Glue or tape the two sides together using the center tab.
  • Along the top of the forehead, there are 3 triangle-shaped tabs. Bend (no folding necessary!) them under the section next to them to curve the top of the mask into a rounded shape, glue or tape them in place.
  • Attach the ears to either side of the mask – make sure they don’t cover the holes for the string!
  • For the Witch’s Hat, start with the top piece that has the pink and orange buckle. Curve it into a cold and glue or tape together.
  • Now, grab the hat’s brim. Fold the four tabs along the inside of the circle and glue or tape them to the inside of the hat’s cone-shaped top.
  • Attach witch’s hat to the top of her head, using glue or tape.
  • Add ribbon or string to the side holes on either side of the mask. Now go cackle around the house!

Make this Printable without a Cricut machine:

If you don’t have a Cricut Explore, you can still create this project as a printable – you’ll cut them out with your scissors instead. Follow the steps below. This will let you purchase the file, and Print Then Cut by hand. There are some interior cuts you may want to ignore, but otherwise you’ll be just fine.

  • Click the “Customize” button for the project you want to make from Smallful’s Cricut Shop.
  • Cricut Print Then Cut projects can only print within a 5.5” x 8” area. You’ll notice the images are laid out and grouped to be printed that way – over multiple pages.
  • Select each image and click the “flatten” button in the pop-up menu on the right.
  • Hit “Go” and then Sign In or create a Cricut ID and enter your payment info.
  • If you aren’t using the Cricut to cut, you will want to remove the bleed by clicking the ‘Bleed (for print then cut)’ box (find this by clicking the blue “more mat options”) under the print copies in the upper LH corner). This will give you a cleaner print.
  • From there, click the “Print and Go” button. At this point, your printer menu will pop up and you can print the image. After you hit print, it will ask you to make sure you have connected your Cricut Explore, but you can just ignore this because you’re all finished! Now you have your own printable to cut out and use!


It's here! A new printables website with paper dolls, Halloween masks for costumes, and Halloween haunted houses to download, print, and make just in time for the holiday.
