I’m so into halloween decorating right now. Since Ella will be here in 11 days, I’m doing it all early. My son had a fever Saturday night and I was up at 4 o’clock in the morning giving him medicine and couldn’t sleep afterwards. So, I laid in bed and thought up this idea.
I had leftover Target scrapbook paper from my BOO banner and bottle caps galore. So I painted them black and cut circles of paper to fit inside the bottle caps.
I used puff paint and wrote out SPOOKY on the circles.
I just used white glue and glued letter into the bottle caps.
But, because of the little ridge on the caps it didn’t glue as well as I had wanted it to. So, I did a coat of Mod Podge on each one to seal it. (Sorry for the bad pictures. We really need a new camera.)
I found this piece of wood in the backyard. So I hot glued each letter to it and used a piece of scrap ribbon to hang it with. I really had to work with the ribbon to bake it hang right.
I ended up adding a strip of magnet behind the word SPOOKY and at the top where the bow is. So I could hang it where ever I want.
The pictures are horrible, but the sign is cute.
And one more halloween decoration I made today. I’m really loving it… Sifted through my piles of sheet music to find something fitting.
The only two things that I really love about halloween are being able to get dressed up (or getting my son dressed up nowdays) and decorating! I found the link to this project from Kimba’s blog A Soft Place To Land and really wanted to make something like it.
I already had halloween scrapbook paper that I bought at Target for $1.00 for 8 sheets. Soooo cute…
I also have a TON of stray piano sheet music that I saved for whatever project comes to mind. So I just took a couple and popped them into my printer and printed each of the BOO letters on a separate piece. I used the paint.net application that I downloaded for free and found a font that I liked and downloaded for free from dafont.com
I cut them out using my son’s Happy Birthday banner as a template and glued them onto the scrapbook paper. Then just used random scraps of ribbon, glitter, puff paint, and fabric to make this…
And my little ghostie…
