DIY Super Simple BOO

It’s getting rainy again.  Fall is definitely here in the beautiful NW.  So what do you do when it rains?  Well, sometimes go outside anyway and sometimes we stay inside by a warm fire and make things – Like this:

And here’s how you do it! 

First, gather together your supplies.  Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Wooden Letters
  • Sparkly bat stickers (or any motif you want)
  • Orange paint (I used Ceramcoat Pumpkin)
  • Black paint
  • Thick brush
  • Sand paper
  • Glue
  • Newspaper to paint on

First, paint the letters on both sides and around the edges in the orange – let it dry thoroughly.

Once the paint is dry, paint over the orange with the black.  Allow it to dry for several hours.  (this is the hard part – waiting!!)

After the paint is totally and thoroughly dry, gently sand the edges and the top so some of the orange shows through under the black.

Place a little dot of glue on the back of the letter where you want to glue it.  I used E6000 glue (I used it for everything).  You’ll want the letters a little bit crooked.

Place the stickers around the sides of the letters – but don’t use too many, just a couple to accent.  Then hang it on your wall.  That’s it!! You’re done~

    Very creative wall sign. I love how the orange paint peeks through the black and the bats add the perfect touch of detail. It looks like a fun project to do with my granddaughter. Thanks for sharing at You’re the Star blog hop. Your project is being featured. Hope to see more DIYs this week.
    Best wishes, Darlene
