Don't you just love it when you hit gold at the Target dollar section. Well that's what inspired this craft. I made a similar craft for Easter. Where I made the word HOP and the O has bunny ears (check it out at Easter Sign). So, when I walked into target and saw the bat headband. The creative juices began flowing. In the end I LOVE IT, I can put it on a table top but this year I hung it on my front door and I love it more.
Well what are you waiting for lets get crafting...
- Paper Mache letters ($1.99 @ all craft stores, I got mine @ Hobby Lobby 50% off)
- Scrapbook paper (I scored this glittery paper @ $1 section @ Target in a pack)
- Halloween headband ($1 section of Target)
- Spider web
- Embellishments (mine are from Target and Walmart.)
- Mod Podge
First. I cut the letters out of the scrapbook paper. Note when tracing the letter to cut, lay it on the right side of the paper. This will allow you to place the design where you like on the right side of the letter.
Second. Paint the edges of the letters. I went with black, orange and green.
Third. I glued on the spider web to the letters before I Mod Podge the scrapbook paper. Remember when working with spider wed a little goes along way and the more you stretch it out the better it looks. Then I added the paper.
Fourth. Have fun with your embellishments. The glitter skull on the B was from target in a pack of six. The Bats on the middle O are from the $1 section of Target in a pack. The glitter spiders on the last O are from Walmart they were confetti. And of course if you know me you know my obsession with ribbon I need help.
Like I said you can stand them up on a table top. This Year I wanted something new on my door so I hung them up with ribbon on my front door love it. I just duck tapped them to the top of my door. Sorry I didn't take a picture but you didn't see anything from the inside of the door.
Here is my Easter Version. Maybe this year I'll hang it up on my door.
Have fun crafting would love to see how yours come out.
