What I got:
Unfinished wood letters-I got them on sale (50% off) for $1 each at Hobby Lobby
Scrapbook paper-on sale (50% off) for about .25 cents per sheet at Hobby Lobby
Ribbon-scrap ribbon I already had
Mod Podge-already had, but I have seen recipes for making your own if you don't have any
Box cutter or sharp razor blade thingy-already had
Embellishments-not necessary, but I got two small packages on sale at Michaels for .75 each
Spread a layer of Mod Podge on a letter and put a sheet of scrapbook paper on top of the letter. Press but don't try to smooth out bubbles or anything.
Let that dry, then take your razor and trace around the letters, cutting off the excess paper. Add another layer of Mod Podge on top. I then let it dry overnight.
Add embellishments if you wish. It's hard to tell in these cell phone picture, but I got some crystal-y spiders and web, skull and crossbones, and bats. Here, she added cute ghosts.
Tie together, hang, and you're done!
Avery is too young to really help with this, so I did it when she was in bed. Kids just a little bit older than her could probably get in on the actions though!
So easy and costs about $5 if you can get everything on sale.
