Layered vinyl designs can be so cute and really add charm to a project. Learn how to layer vinyl on this Jack and Sally Halloween glass jar.
Layering vinyl can be a bit time consuming but they do produce awesome results. This fun Halloween glass jar turned out super cute and it was fun to add some extra layers of color.
You know I love StyleTechCraft vinyl so I used some Craft Glossy vinyl and one color of transparent glitter vinyl.
I am on the design team for StyleTechCraft so they have provided me with the vinyl supplies and the transfer tape.

Jack and Sally Halloween Glass Jar
I love the Nightmare Before Christmas and I would like to start including more of these designs into my Halloween decor. So I am starting with a fun Halloween glass jar that I can put candy in for the holiday.
I have added some affiliate links for your convenience. You can see my full disclosure here.

- Cricut Maker
A lot of these pieces are really small. Layering small designs is a great way to use up pieces of scrap vinyl.
Step 1: Upload your design to Cricut Design Space
I found my SVG on Etsy. After I was downloaded it onto my computer I was able to upload it to design space.
I have found that when a file comes into design space you most likely need to re-size it to fit your project.
In this instance I wanted it to be about 3.5 inches. In this case it didn’t need to be precise.
Step 2: Get it ready to cut
After you have re-sized the image to your fit, you need to choose your settings.
For this project I chose the regular vinyl setting with the default pressure for the glossy craft vinyl. But when it got to the yellow moon I wanted to change my settings.
All you have to do is Edit that mat and change the setting to premium glitter setting. I think it was premium frosted glitter to be exact.
The Cricut will tell you what color you are cutting next so after each cut you just prepare the mat with the next color.
Step 3: Weed and add transfer paper
When all of the layers have been cut it is time to weed the designs. Some of these were really tiny so I had to be careful. But I got it done.
After the weeding I added transfer tape to the top of each piece, except the black background piece.
This is the piece all of the other layers will be placed on.
Step 4: Start the layering
I like to look at a picture of the design while I am layering to make sure I get everything in the right spot.
The bottom layer was the black piece and the transparent glitter piece was next.
Next was the white layer.
The blue layer…
Next in line was the gray layer.
After the gray layer I added the red for Sally’s hair and lips.
Then came the yellow and pink layers for her dress.
Then the layering was done. There was just one spot I had to realign a little bit but it came out so cute.
Step 5: Add layered design to glass jar
Once it was all layered, I added some transfer tape to the top of the entire design.
Then it was ready to place onto the glass jar.
I lined it up and placed it down. Then removed the transfer tape.
Didn’t it turn out cute? I really love it a lot.
Here are some more finished photos with the glass jar full of candy and ready for Halloween.
