Hey girl, hey! This Halloween Trick or Treat sign was so much fun to make! It will be perfect as a door hanger! Here’s where I made it live, and Aunt Criddy saved us from a bee, y’alll! A BEE!
I started out with this Dollar Tree Happy Halloween sign. It’s cute, but I knew we could get even cuter!
Hobby Lobby: 2 pieces of 12X12 striped scrapbook paper
Michaels: “Trick or Treat” words
Debi’s Design Diary Summer Crush
Dollar Tree: Tinsel Stems (pipe cleaners), Jenga blocks, candy corn fabric
Purple acrylic paint
Black and white beads (These were a gift from friend Denise)
Aunt Criddy is always fun! We were laughing over the “Clumpy Dumpy” bow.
Wood letters from Michaels.
Clockwise, left to right:
To remove the wood piece that says “boo”, I heated it with my heat tool and then scraped it off.
I sanded it down, added Mod Podge, and then applied the scrapbook paper over the Mod Podge.
I sanded the edges of the paper and now it is our background!
Debi’s Design Diary Summer Crush was perfect for the letters! You can set aside to dry or use your heat tool.
This purple paint was too dark. You’ll see in the finished project that I added a coat of lighter purple to get just the right color tone.
Raising the words up on the narrow side of Jenga blocks gave it a shadow effect! I love that!
I hot glued the narrow sides of the blocks so they would fit behind the letters.
I added hot glue to them and put them onto the sign.
See that purple? That’s what I’m talkin’ about, y’all! It’s just right!
I considered various trims for the edge, but decided on these pipe cleaners that Dollar Tree calls “Tinsel Stems”.
I just glued each piece along the edge.
Once all of the tinsel stems were on, I made the “Clumpy Dumpy” bow. It’s a fun process. I wanted it to be a bit higher than the top of my sign, so I glued a piece of a large craft stick to the back. I placed it higher than the edge of the sign so I could put the bow on it.
I also used craft sticks (and staples) to adhere the beaded hanger.
This is how the back looks.
Here you can see the blocks under the words, the trim around the edge and the bow. Just use what you have to make a bow!
I think it turned out so cute! It’s ready to greet those little trick or treaters!
