First I painted the wood orange with Delta Ceramcoat paint.
After letting it dry, I applied the lettering. I love the font...don't you?
Next, I let the wood sit around my house for about 1 month without doing a thing to it!
It needed something more, so I stamped the bats on with a rubber stamp and black acrylic paint.
I had some cute little vintage Halloween pictures that I purchased on Etsy as a download. They were like $2 and I can used them over and over again. I matted the vintage picture with some cute Halloween paper and used some pop dots to attach it.
To finish it off, I edged the wood with black paint. I just used a paper towel and rubbed it around the edges. Soooo easy and very cheap. The vinyl was free, the wood was in my garage, I had the paint and the only cost was the vintage image!
