{Spooky Subway Art}

31 Aug

The other day I had my friend Sarah from Alpine Poppy and her daughter over for a Girl’s Subway Art Day. We had a wonderful time chatting and making some Subway Art projects! I made a Spooky Halloween one using a board I had in my garage from my Laundry Room project {more details on that coming up this week!}

It was great fun! A Girls Craft Day is a great way to get projects done while having fun! I highly recommend it 🙂

I painted my board using my DecoArt Americana Black craft paint. Then I cut out the letters using my Silhouette machine. But if you don’t have a craft cutting machine, you can use sticky scrapbook letters for the same effect. OR, you can print off letters using your computer on cardstock and cut the letters out and then decoupage them on!

I added three rolled flowers for fun, using two different fabrics in each.  I sewed the flowers together and then used Gorilla Glue to attach them to my board. There is a great Rolled Flower Tutorial over at My Sparkle if you want to check it out.

I had a dilemma of how to hang up my Spooky Subway Art when I was finished. Luckily, the nice folks at Dremel sent me a cool power tool a couple weeks ago and I had a chance to try it out!!! Wow – I felt so handy! It came with a box of little bits and there was a drill bit. So I popped that on and in 2 seconds flat it had drilled through my pretty thick wood. I made 2 holes and then I found an old wire hanger.

I cut it in a 20 inch section using some heavy-duty wire cutters and threaded it through my holes. I felt about 5 inches looped across the top. Then I took a pair of small pliers and wrapped the hanger around the pliers in a circular motion, creating a tight loop. I did this on both ends and then I painted the hanger with my DecoArt Americana Orange Paint.

And, instead of hanging it on a plain old nail, I slipped a sparkly knob over the top of the nail and hung it on that for a little excitement. I had the perfect wall for my Spooky Art – long and thin. It’s perfect!!

Have a Great Day!

XOXO
