The last visit I made, I had to take a few inspiration photos in the store. (Sorry anyone who works at Hobby Lobby-- I'm sure I'm not suppose to do that!) This one inspired me for this project:
I loved the idea of the sparkly circles as the frame. I knew I wanted to do Halloween colors, so I picked orange, black, purple, and lime green. I knew I had 3 canvases and knew I could hang them together with ribbon. With those thoughts, I came up with this:
|The window clings are from Art Skills, if you were wondeirng! :)|
|Here's a close up to show the glitter. I love Glitter.|
To add a little more black, I added some detail around the letters with puffy paint. After the puffy paint dried (always leave time for that! It's SO EASY to accidentally hit & mess up!) I measured out my ric rac and hot glued it on. Yep, that's it, just some hot glue on the back side of the canvas.
Next I cut ribbons to hang the canvases with. I cut separate ribbons, but you could always do one long one if you felt better with that. Again, some hot glue! (I'm telling you, hot glue is a crafter's BFF)
Now I have an adorable sign for my classroom door! It's been hanging up for a week now and hasn't fallen down once. It's hanging on the hook of a suction cup to the window, and all of the hot glue is holding!
What are your decorating ideas this year for Halloween? Either at home or in the classroom?
