Hey there! Today I’m excited to show you a craft I made recently for our front porch for Halloween! It’s fun and easy to make, so you could make one, too!
I recently received a box of goodies from Mod Podge, and included inside was the perfect ingredients to make a sign for our front porch.
Here’s what you’ll need:
*A poster board
*an old book, with the pages cut into strips
*foam craft brush
*black craft paint
Begin by writing out what you want your sign to say. I free handed the word “BOO.”
After cutting out the poster board, you’re ready for the book pages. Using your foam craft brush, brush on Mod Podge to a small section of your sign. (I used Antique Matte finish because I wanted our sign to look a bit aged.) Add the book page strip, and brush more Mod Podge to the top, making sure you get the sides and corners well. Let the sign dry.
Next, it’s time to add some black craft paint. I outlined all of the edges so the word BOO would stand out. I also dry brushed a bit of black paint across the sign to give it more of a spooky look.
The last step is to add some Glow-In-The-Dark Mod Podge for that extra bit of Halloween fun. It takes about 5 coats for a really good glow, but it’s totally worth it. (I have to apologize…I don’t have any pics of my sign glowing in the dark because of my camera is not the best quality! It totally glows, though!!)
Once the sign is totally dry, you can add some plastic spiders or other Halloween items to your sign if you want. Our little spiders are for my cute J…he is obsessed with spiders right now! They are attached with some raffia to keep with the “old, antique” look.
And that’s it! Time to put it on the porch!
I like the subtle addition of Halloween to our fall porch. It doesn’t knock you over the head with the next holiday, but it still lets people know we’re in the Halloween “spirit!”
