Halloween!!!


These are the crafts I'm offering for my Halloween Craft Week this year.  The first sign is for the door for Halloween.  It is done on a 1x8x8 and is reversible.  I used vinyl as a stencil for both sides.  It's just much more durable, especially for signs that will be outside.

 Trick or Treat, smell my feet is on a 1x12x12 board.  I painted the board pumpkin, used the vinyl as a stencil and painted the lettering black.  Then I ripped off the vinyl and sanded the edges.

  Happy pumpkin spice season, is on a 1x12x12 board.  I painted the board pumpkin, used the vinyl as a stencil and painted the lettering black.  Then I ripped off the vinyl and sanded the edges.
 Scaredy Cats Welcome is on a 1x12x24 board.  I painted the board black, then placed the stencil and painted EVERYTHING white.  Then I went back and painted the cat purple.  I painted everything white because it saves so much more time.  Otherwise I would have had to paint 5 or 6 layers of purple to make it show up on the black.
 Broomsticks, bats and toads is on a 1x12x14 board.  I painted it black, then put a stencil down, I painted all the lettering white, and pulled off the vinyl.  I lightly sanded the edges.
Dead & Breakfast is on a 1x12x14 board.  I painted it black, then put a stencil down, I painted all the lettering white, and pulled off the vinyl.  I lightly sanded the edges.

I'm also offering a countdown that I made for myself 2 years ago, but never offered for a craft day, but it's super cute so I tossed it in there.
This trio of Vintage 1940's Halloween designs are all 3 made on 1x6x12 boards.  First I painted the boards black, then white.  Then I put down 1 set of stencils and stenciled on the black parts of the cats and crow, also all the stars and swirls up above.  Then I put on a second set of stencils and added on all the layers of color on top of the black.  Then I sanded enough to bring out some of the black that I had originally painted underneath the white layer.  I'm loving them!
