These Mod Podge Halloween Letters are one of my favorite and easiest crafts to date. These took no time to make at all and the thing that made it the easiest was learning the right way to use Mod Podge.
When I started this project I decided to watch the video my friend Amy from Mod Podge Rocks referred me to last year when I made these Halloween Block Letters. Let me tell you now if you have never Mod Podged and think you are going to wing it DON’T! All you will get is bubbles and wrinkles and your scrapbook paper will get stuck and you wont be able to move it into place! (Wonder how I know that!) Watch this video!
To make these Halloween letters I used 8” cardboard letters from Hobby Lobby, 3 different scrapbook papers, Mod Podge, black craft paint, and a foam brush. First I painted the edges of the letters black so they would blend with the paper and have a finished look. Then I traced the letter onto the scrapbook paper and cut it out.
Mod Podge your scrapbook paper onto the letter. Whey applying it put it on the cardboard letter and the scrapbook paper so that when you place it on you can move it around. It only took one coat on top for mine.
One quick tip if you have old vinyl placemats left over from when your children were small they work great to Mod Podge on and keep the adhesive off your table.
I took some scrapbook adhesive squares and put them on the back and attached them to the window panes of my big picture window.
They were the perfect finale to my Halloween Mantle! I love it! You can see how I made the coffee filter wreath hanging on the window here.
On the right is a vase I snagged at the Haven Conference this summer and an owl that Matthew fell in love with at Hobby Lobby. The flowers are from Michael’s.
The left side is my spider funkin and a glittered crow from Michael's. The black and cream candles are from Hobby Lobby as well. The glittered skull is from the Dollar Store.
I love my Halloween mantle this year and it makes me smile every time I look at it! There are so many things I can do with these letters, my mind is already thinking of how I can do this craft again for Christmas!
