Halloween is just around the oh-so spooky corner. Before you know it, people of all ages will be dressing up in creative costumes, from the most frightening to the delightfully adorable. But before a troop of trick-or-treaters finds their way to your front porch, now is the perfect time to use Front Porch Treasures and get a little crafty for the season with a fun and easy holiday sign.
What You’ll Need
To begin this Halloween craft, you’ll first need to get wooden letters that spell out the festive word or message of your choice. You can keep it short and sweet with the ghostly word “Boo,” or try out other eerie options like “Beware.” Along with these letters you will need the following:
● Halloween themed or colored scrapbook papers
● Halloween Die-cuts such as ghosts, gravestones, or witches
● Paint and brush
Steps to Creating the Sign
After you’ve selected the word for your Halloween sign, you can paint the side edges of each wooden letter whatever color you feel works best. When the paint is dry, trace the letters on the back of the scrapbook paper you selected.
Next, use your scissors to cut each traced piece out. Once that’s done, apply a coat of modpodge to the front of a wooden letter and adhere the cutout paper on top.
When all of the wooden letters have been covered and the modpodge has dried, add another coat to the front of the adhered scrapbook paper.
After the finishing coat has completely dried, take the Front Porch Treasures Foam Mounts and place them where you desire on the letters. Attach your chosen die-cuts to the mounts for a neat, three-dimensional effect. The mounts are available in different shapes and thicknesses, so you can get creative as to how far you want the die-cut shapes to pop out.
Lastly, use ribbon to hang the letters together either vertically or horizontally, and then display it proudly in a front window or on your porch for all ghoulish trick-or-treaters to see. Your super spooky Halloween sign is sure to get the holiday spirit a brewing.
