Halloween Letter

I have worked on a little project for you guys.  It took ten times longer than it should have because of time limitations, but it is super cute now that it’s finished.

I had someone cut a letter for me, she makes these and paints them herself and they are super cute.  I just wanted to do something of my own for Halloween but did not want to cut the letter.  So…it started out like this.

Then I went to Michaels Craft Store and went crazy over Martha Stewarts new craft paint collection.  I purchased the stencils and paint for the letter.  The coolest thing I bought was the aerosol can that converts any of her paint colors to spray paint.  This was super easy to use.  I sprayed the whole letter black then added the orange stenciling.

Last, I brushed on the orange glitter the entire surface for a sparkly look.

Now, if I can just find a place to hang it!  Right now it’s hanging on my coat rack.  I had planned to hang on my garage door by my wreath hanger is missing and I cannot remember to pick up a hook !  My Mom made this cute bow for it and I just love it!  The stenciling  is definitely my favorite part.

Now I just need to find something else to try out the Martha Stewart craft paint on :)  Christmas is right around the corner!!
