I love fall and the cooler weather it brings. It’s just wonderful!! I wanted to share with you a few real easy Halloween decorations I made from a sheet of vintage cardstock I purchased at a craft show.
I started by drilling small holes in the corners of the two larger wood plaques and then sanded them where needed. After brushing off the dust, I applied a good coat of gesso to all three pieces, front and back.
While the gesso was drying, I cut out my images. I then painted each piece with 2 coats of coordinating paints and let it dry. Next, I sanded the edges just a little and brushed off the dust.
I purchased black coated copper jewelry wire that I used to hang two of the plaques with. Once the wires were in place, I glued the images onto all the plaques with Aleene’s Tacky Glue. Last I added torn harvest fabric as an accent and also used it to hang the third plaque. And Voila! I had three unique vintage Halloween decorations!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoy!
