BOO-tiful Door Hanger

Wood letters – I used 6 inch letters
3 sheets of scrapbook paper
Black paint
White paint
Paint brushes – 1 regular, 1 sponge brush
Mod Podge
Orange yarn
Wood ghosts
Black Sharpie

1. Paint the sides of your letters with the black paint

2. Using the wood letters as a stencil, trace the outline of your letters. Cut the letters out.

3. Using the sponge brush, apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the front of your wood letters and apply the paper letter accordingly.

Wait approximately 20 minutes then apply a thin coat of Mod Podge on the top of the letters.

4. Cut 3 strands of orange yarn. Tie each letter together. Making a loop, tie the final strand around the top of the B.

5. If you choose to add the ghosts, paint them white. After the paint dries, use a Sharpie to draw faces. Using a hot glue gun, craft glue, or regular white glue, add the ghosts to your hanger.

6. Hang and enjoy!
