I Do Believe In Spooks...

Sorry I have been MIA as of late, I needed some time to just relax and enjoy the last few days of summer with family and neighbors! But here comes my favorite time of year, so hopefully I will have plenty of projects to share!

I had so much fun with the last craft night, so I am anxious to do another! Hopefully it isn't too soon, but I want to do this Halloween craft, and if you want to enjoy it this year, we need to get it done.
Here it is:



The cost is $12 (sorry but this wood is pricier than a 2x4) It is about 6" high and about 3 1/2' long. It will be pretty much the same process as last time, paint the board black, sand it, and mod podge on the letters. Easy Peasy!
As usual I will supply everything, wall hooks and all, you just need to show up!
I am debating doing it on Thurs the 23rd, or Thurs the 30th. So for those of you that sign up, let me know which date you prefer and I will pick the date that the majority chooses. Can't wait!

For those of you who want to make one, but can't come: The font I used is ZOOBALOO from cricut. *I used the dot from the letter "i" for the "eyes" in the word "spooks" I just use a light cream card stock, and a 1x6 (or a 1x8) board from Home Depot or Lowes. (if you don't have saws, they will cut it to the length you want for you) I also used a dremel to antique the edges, but that is optional, I just like the "spooky" look it gives the board. Paint and distress your board and mod podge on your letters!

I always feel so special when someone features my projects! Thanks ladies!
