Craft Along with GIY: Letters and Numbers
The theme for this month's Craft Along with GIY is Letters and Numbers. My first project, a house number, did not turn out quite right. Thankfully, my second project was more successful. It's a Halloween countdown sign.
In my craft supplies stash, I had just the thing for a Letters and Numbers project - a container of letters and numbers. :D
I sorted through the wood letters and numbers, pulling out "DAYS UNTIL HALLOWEEN" and a set of numbers.
I wanted to paint the numbers black and the letters orange. Alas, I had no orange paint on hand! But I did have yellow and red, and acrylic paints mix well. I even got the right shade of orange on the first try. :)
While the paint dried, I selected some papers from a scrapbook paper pad. I left one paper whole to use as the background, and cut others into small rectangles to use as the countdown numbers.
I pulled out a cardstock raven, and I cut a paper oval slightly larger than the raven.
Using glue, I assembled all this into a Halloween countdown sign. I still need to frame the sign and add small brads or nails to hang the numbers on.
