Halloween Word Art & Framed Specimens

Jessie is in the studio with Amy Chappell to teach you how to make fun and easy decorations for your Halloween home. Amy blogs at www.amerooniedesigns.blogspot.com  


The first thing you need to do is create your base letters. Amy used cereal boxes to do this.  

Once you have cut off the front and back of the cereal box, you will need to select your font and letter size. You can find the fonts and sizes for the art Amy created on her blog.

You can cut out your letters using an electronic cutter or you can print stencils onto a piece of paper and use a pair of scissors.

Once your letters are cut Amy used mod podge to glue them together. You can also use hot glue or any other kind of glue. Amy's biggest tip with mod podge is to use wax paper on your work surface, especially when you leave the letters to dry. The glue won't stick to the wax paper and you don't have to worry about tearing your letters. So, put a thin, even coat of glue on your first letter. Place the second letter on top. Repeat for the third letter. Cover with a second piece of wax paper, place a book and/or other flat heavy object on top to help the letters dry flat and stick all the layers together as it dries. Do this for all your letters. Once your letters are dry, you can decorate them however you want.


For this cute craft, Amy used spider rings that you can find almost anywhere around Halloween. When you have the spiders, you first put a little bit of glue on the top of each one. Then, you sprinkle some glitter on them to give them some dimension. After the glitter is dry, you can use a pair of scissors to cut off the ring part of the spider and then use foam dots to attach the spider to your backdrop.
