Today, and the next three Fridays we will be sharing projects designed to help you haunt your house for Halloween. From vinyl to iron-on, we will be showcasing how to make boutique worthy projects with your Pazzles Creative Cutter and some of the specialty media we offer. Stay tuned each week and we promise you will be ready to host little ghosts and goblins in style.
I may have mentioned this before, but I really love the Halloween holiday. Every year I throw a huge Halloween bash for my extended family and I try to out do myself each year. As part of that quest, I wanted some new Halloween vinyl signs to decorate with. I’ve been seeing these all over craft websites and at local craft stores and I knew they would be easy to make.
I’ve designed three different signs for you to cut from vinyl and apply to a piece of wood. These are easy to make, but I do have just a few tips.
- I designed these to fit a piece of wood that is 1 foot wide, but as we discovered, the sizes at the lumber store are not exact. Measure your wood and re-size the image using the condense function if needed.
- We sell two kinds of vinyl; regular vinyl and wall vinyl. I used regular vinyl for this project, with one exception, as it has a more permanent application than the wall vinyl. I chose to use wall vinyl for the word toad because I liked the wall vinyl shade of green best. Watch the Cutting Vinyl Video for tips on applying vinyl to your projects.
- I painted my signs three different ways. The orange sign began with a layer of Flesh Tone Deco Art Gloss Enamels. I then used a mixture of brown, red, and orange Deco Art Glass Stain, which is transparent, to give it a streaked orange look. I finished it off by dry brushing a layer of white enamel over the top and wiping it off before it dried. For the gray and black sign I first painted a layer of black and then dry brushed on a layer of gray. The all black sign was simply painted with black enamel paint.
Have fun customizing these signs to your liking and remember to share your creations with us.
