Infuse your home with spine-tingling excitement with our Cat Witch Hat Shadow Box! This is an incredibly quick and easy project for the Halloween festival, commonly showcased within a shadow box (free SVG box that you can get here), suitable as gifts for loved ones during trick-or-treating.
Our 3D shadow box cut file showcases a mysterious cat with a witch’s hat beside a sinister and eerie haunted house, all beneath a night sky adorned with a hauntingly luminous full moon. In addition, to be noticed are the Halloween pumpkins with spooky faces right in front of the shadow box. These glowing pumpkins, to be exact, accentuate the horror of this design! Moreover, because it includes 10 layers, this unique craft allows you to easily breathe life into your home decor. Get ready to scream – BOO!
To create a beautiful light effect, we recommend using white paper with LED lights installed on the back. You can also combine different coloured papers depending on your preference. With endless ideas, you can create a personalized masterpiece.
Besides using this masterpiece as a gift for loved ones during the Halloween festival, you can use it to decorate homes, bedrooms, living rooms, offices, etc.
- Foam board (the thickness is about 3-7 mm)
- Tracing paper
- Lights (we used these in several Halloween projects this year and loved them)
- Shadow box frame, depth at least 6-8cm (2.5-3 inches)
- Design: Haunted House Shadow box, Full Moon Halloween Svg Cut Files
A note about the lights we used – The lights are waterproof and controlled by a remote control that actually works pretty well. You can choose the light color since they have different settings for different color lights. They also take batteries so that you can use them again. However, because of the cheap price, they would be a bust, so be careful!

- Green Cutting Mat
- Hot Glue Gun
Steps to make A Cat Witch Hat Halloween Shadow Box With Pumpkin Halloween SVG Cut File
Download this Halloween shadow box template from the link below.
If you’re using a Cricut, upload the Halloween SVG files into Cricut Design Space and import them into a new project. However, be sure to click “Attach” in the bottom right corner to keep the pieces in the right place.
You can also resize the cutout to match your frame size. Click “Make It” and centre the cutout on your paper on the cutting mat layout before clicking “Continue”.

Cut the card stock to align with the measurements of the frame’s interior. Then, stack the layers on one another. Remember to place the foam between the layers in a manner that gives a protrusion appearance. This will help create a captivating 3D depth illusion for the Pumpkin Halloween SVG Cut Files.
Tape a sheet of tracing paper to the back of the cardstock so that the light radiates more evenly and beautifully!
Use hot glue to fix the LED strip or Fairy Light to the back of the shadow box. How many you need depends on how big your frame is. For our smallest frame, we only use one; for our largest, we use four.
This is an incredibly easy project that can be undone. What do I mean? You can claim back the lightbox when the project is finished and put it away again for next year.
From downloading the print file, cutting it out, and assembling the shadow boxes, you only spend less than 20 minutes. These look great during the day but really stand out in the dark. I suggest an area of your home that doesn’t get much light at night, like a dark hallway or a room without windows!
