This year I wanted to involve my kids in making decorations Usually I am a little picky of what goes up, but this year my 6 year old wanted to get involved. So off to crafting heaven, or Hobby Lobby as it is better known, for some inspiration.
Instead of the normal wreaths I like to make, we decided to go for a door hanger. I love it! It was so easy to make and you do not just have to make it for Halloween, you can spell anything and decorate in anyway you want!
What you will need:
B, O, O wooden letters (any size you want)
wooden ghost (they came in a three pack)
acrylic clear spray paint
hot glue gun
First, take each letter and trace it onto the back of your scrapbook paper. Then cut them out.
Paint on a light coat of mod podge on to the letter and apply your scrapbook paper. Then apply another thin layer on top of the paper making sure you get all of the crevices in the letters. This will help make sure the seams are sealed between the letter and the paper.
Hot glue the ghost onto your letters....wherever you want!
Take the out side and give them a spray, let dry. Give them about 3 coats.
Make sure you spray the ghost!
Cut three pieces of ribbon and tie your letters together. There you go! Go hang up your door hanger with pride!
