More Halloween Fun!

Last year I wanted to create a wall hanging that I could switch out for my regular art on the walls. This is what I came up with first. It is a 12x12 wood board spray painted in a shiny black acrylic. I have a font with fun Halloween-themed dingbats, and I wanted to incorporate them into a square sign. I also wanted it to be versatile for smaller displays, so this particular design also works well on 4x4 black bathroom tiles.

I came up with the idea for this second sign after I made the Boo board. I was playing around with the idea of spiders and using two colors of vinyl to make a sign (much like our overlays). I love how it turned out. Now that I've gotten my orange vinyl, I'm thinking of tackling a pumpkin or jack-o-lantern design. It looks like I'll be finishing those after Halloween since this week I am trying to finish up the last of the Friday Frenzy orders, and I also need to help my sister-in-law who just fractured her kneecap and is 3rd term pregnancy. (Yikes!)

I've got one more Halloween inspired idea that I will try & post for you tomorrow. Let me just say, it's gone a long-way in preventing fights over candy. Until then, Happy Fall!

I love those Halloween decorations, I'll have to see if I can find some boards to put something like that on, do you still have it saved to that size board? Can't wait to see this new idea...

Yes, I've got all the files saved, so I can make you a new one if you like... :D
