There are several supplies needed for this project :
- Rolling Pins
- 7-inch rolling pins, packed 3 in (these are the ones I used and are photographed below).
- 7″ rolling pins, packed 12 in
- 5″ rolling pins, packed 6 in
- Paint – I used the colors “ink” and “pumpkin.” These are from Walmart.
- Paint brushes – These paint brushes are my favorites.
- Painter’s tape (optional) – to tape off the ends for cleaner lines
- Paint tray (optional) – you can use a small paper plate or bowl
- vinyl letters – I made mine with my Cricut white vinyl

Tape off the rolling pin ends with tape.
I like to use painters tape tape off the end of the rolling pins so that I have a clean line of color on the handles.
You can see both pins below, taped and ready to be painted.
Paint the Halloween mini rolling pins.
I normally apply two coats of paint to the rolling pins, waiting the time indicated on the paint bottles in between coats.
Decide if you want the side of the roller to match the color of the rest of the roller or the handles. I like for the side of the roller to be the same color as the rolling pin.
Remove painters tape from the handles.
After the paint dries, remove the painters tape from the handles of the Halloween mini rolling pins.
Paint the rolling pin handles.
Paint the handles of the Halloween mini rolling pins after removing the tape. I like to use the paint color of the other rolling pin, making a really cute set.
Decide on your Halloween sayings.
There are so many great options for Halloween sayings! I’ve listed several options below.
- Happy Halloween
- Spooky or Spooktacular
- Hocus Pocus
- Trick or Treat
- Candy Corn
- Witches or Witchy
- Pretty Wicked
- Haunt or Haunted
- Creepin’ it Real
- Black Cats
Apply the stickers or vinyl letters onto the rolling pins.
There are many great font options to choose from when cutting words and letters on a Cricut or Silhouette machine. I chose to use the Skinny font, a free font on dafont.com.
Add embellishments to the mini rolling pins.
Ribbons and twine look great as an embellishment tied around the rolling pin. To make my bow, I start by hot gluing a short strip of ribbon around the end of the rolling pin.
I love using these silicone finger protecting covers when I use my glue gun. They save my fingertips all the time!
A simple shoestring bow is perfect for these Halloween mini rolling pins.
After I’ve created the mini bow, I use the glue gun and attach it to the ribbon that is on the mini rolling pin.
And that’s it! These Halloween mini rolling pins are darling and so easy to make!
