Ok, onto my project. For my project, I decided to make a door sign to hang out on Halloween! This is my first time making a door sign and I am really pleased with how it came out.
Here is a picture of the door sign:
and a closeup of some of the detail:
Cute huh? This is how I made it. I took took pieces of 8.5" by 11" pieces of chipboard and glued them together to make it really sturdy. Then I started decorating the front. I took a piece of white card stock and attached it to the chipboard and sprayed it with some Raven glimmer mist. I cute my witch's hat out of Mini Monsters Cricut Cartridge at 6.25". Once I had my hat cut out, I free hand cut a shape to resemble a witch's head peeking up from the bottom of the sign. Her eyes are hand drawn. Not my best but it gets the point across haha! For my Spider, I cut him out of Doodlecharms at 3". I added some googly eyes and some doodling for a little interest. My "Boo" was cut out of Don Juan At 2.5". After I had everything cut out and attached to the front of the sign, I added some eyelets and threaded my ribbon through for the hanger. I then flipped it over and added some Black Crepe Streamers, to give it the look of some ruffled ribbon. It was so simple to make but I absolutely love it!
