I love projects that are quick, I love them even more when I can make them with supplies I already have.  This cute Halloween project was super easy and I already had everything I needed on hand.

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED

HERE’S WHAT YOU DO

Start by using your E600 to glue the wood knob onto your wood block.  Once that has dried, paint everything orange.
To distress the block, take a black ink pad and rub it over the edges and lightly.  Also, carefully rub it over the knob and the middle of the block.  If you’ve never used an ink pad to distress before, I would suggest practicing on a piece of scrapbook or cardstock.  Once you’ve got the feel for the look you want, then apply the ink to your wood block.
Once you’re happy with your distressing job, take the spray sealer and spray everything with a nice even coat.  This will stop the ink from smudging when you touch it.
While the sealer is drying, cut out your vinyl with your electronic cutter.  I sized the design at 5″ x 5″.  Then, weed away the excess vinyl and use transfer tape to apply the vinyl to your wood block.
Cut a piece of wire and wrap it around a pencil to give it that cute curly-q look.  Then, twist it around the wood knob.  Finally, cut a few pieces of black raffia and tie them around the knob, too.
So quick and simple to make!

  1. I've got everything I need to whip this up. I finished making the Halloween road sign yesterday. It turned out fabulously! Thank you! Instead of nailing the signs to the post, I used magnets so I could remove them for easier storing after the holiday.
