Good evening!  I hope you are all having a wonderful week!  The weather here has been warmer than usual, so we've been enjoying some extra time outside - we have to take advantage of it before it turns cold for good!!

The project I have to share tonight is a Halloween decoration I made for my front door.

I started with letters that I bought from Hobby Lobby that are about 1 inch thick and 6 inches tall.  I painted the sides and backs of the letters with black acrylic paint.

Then I traced around the letters on the back side of pattern papers and cut them out by hand.  I used Mod Podge to adhere the pattern papers to the front of the letters.

Finally I cut out various images with my cricut, stuck them on the letters and tied the letters together with orange crinkle ribbon.  Pretty easy and now we have a fun Halloween decoration for the front door!

I'm going to enter this project into two challenges.  The first is over at Go Fish, where the challenge is to create a 3D Halloween project.  I'm also going to submit this into the Little Monsters challenge at My Craft Spot where you must include a monster on your project.

Thanks for coming by to take a look at my creation!!
