EEK and BOO!

Welcome to 5 days of Halloween crafts. Most of the crafts this week will be fast and cheap. We are going to start with these two signs.

Supplies

Dollar Tree for the win on this one. I bought both of these signs at Dollar Tree. They have several styles of DIY signs right now for Halloween. I also used Waverly Chalk Paint in the color Ink and White. For the red paint, I used to red acrylic paint I had on hand that I am trying to use up.

Once I had everything painted I though the signs needed something more so I used Dollar Tree Halloween Stickers. Other supplies are paint brushes and glue for the stickers.

Let’s Get Started

To start these wall hangers I painted the BOO with Ink Waverly Chalk Paint and EEK with red acrylic paint. Both only took one coat. Each have a different texture to them since I used different kinds of paint. Please use what ever color and type of paint you want to or have on hand. Purple and orange would also be great colors to use.

Next I took a fan brush and brushed the edges of each word with White Waverly Chalk Paint. To do this, lightly load up the brush with paint and tap of the brush on a scrap sheet of paper to get some of the paint off of it. This will keep it from clumping up the paint when you touch it to the words. Swipe the brush over the words to add some interest to them.

Once painted and dry, I thought they still looked bare. I dug though my Halloween stash and found these felt Dollar Tree Halloween Stickers. I spread them out across both words until I was happy with how they looked.

Here is a closer look at the wall hangers. I love projects like this that are fast and each cost about $3.00 each. That is very affordable.

I hope you enjoyed day 1 of 5 days of Halloween. Please let me know what you think!
