I can't believe I am actually working on Halloween crafts in August! Remember all that Vinyl lettering I am still trying to use up? Here is one of them. I had this blank wood I got at that craft store that went out of business for about $1.50. The vinyl was about $3. I already had the paints on hand.
Here is what it looked like before.
I painted the wood with Burnt Orange by Americana. I only painted one coat. Next, I applied the vinyl lettering. Then, I sanded the edges and around all the words. I didn't like the way that looked, so I added a little black paint with my dry sponge brush. I just smeared the paint lightly on the wood.
I like the distressed look, don't you?
This only took me about an hour to make total, including drying time. Super quick and EASY!
You can't see in this picture, but there is a little hook on the bottom in the center of the wood.
I am racking my brain trying to think of what I could hang there.
My 9 year old said she would make a paper bat, or a pumpkin I could hang on it.
I like that idea. What would you hang there?
