Can you believe it? Three days in a row I have posted on the blog! I’m trying to make up for last week *wink*
Today I am going to share the Wood and Burlap Halloween Sign I made. This was the second craft we made in MFTM Craft Class and the girls loved this one too. I love the burlap and wood combination a TON.
This project is pretty versatile. You can choose your own dimensions for the sign, paint colors, design, etc. But I will give you the four-one-one on how to make the sign I made.
You will need:
9×9 piece of sanded ply wood
8×8 piece of burlap
31 card stock stencil
Using your sponge brush, paint the surface of your wood. I two toned mine with white in the center and black on the edges of the sign.
Once it’s dry, paint a layer of Mod Podge on the center of the sign where you are laying the burlap.
Carefully lay the burlap down on the Mod Podge and press down firmly once it’s in the right place. Add Mod Podge to any corners or edges that aren’t secure.
Once the Mod Podge dries, lay your 31 stencil on top of the burlap and apply paint with your sponge brush. Hold the stencil steady with your hands. Lift the stencil straight up when you’re finished. Allow dry time.
Add any other designs you want. I added polka dots using the back of a paint brush.
I used a table saw and a sander to prepare my 9×9 piece of wood.
I used my Silhouette machine to cut out the 31 from card stock to make my stencil. The image measured 7×7.
I love the way this turned out. Some of the girls in MFTM Craft Class even added a painted spider hanging of the 3 in 31. Super cute.
And in case you missed the Reclaimed Wood Candy Corn, check out the tutorial HERE.
See you tomorrow for the last project we made in MFTM Craft Class for Halloween!
