Instructions

STEP 1

Paint the 'Welcome My Little Pretties' sign with a base coat of Summer Linen paint. Let dry.

 

Dry brush shadows on in Acorn paint. These shadows were painted to the left and bottom of the letters. Let dry.

 

With watered-down Arrowhead paint, add another shadow to the left and bottom of the letters. Let dry.

 

Add highlights to the upper right portion of the letters with Wedding Cake paint. Set aside to dry.  

STEP 2

For the second 'Welcome My Little Pretties' sign, mix three parts of Copper glitter to one part Twilight (iridescent black) glitter together in a disposable plate.

 

Brush Mod Podge® on a small section of the 'Welcome My Little Pretties' plaque. Cover with glitter. Tap excess off. Repeat the steps until the sign is covered.

 

Glue the painted plaque on top of the glitter sign, slightly off to the top and right to create a 'shadow' with the glitter plaque. Set aside.

 

Paint the front of the Halloween House in an ombre style with the Arrowhead and Plum paint colors. Let dry.  

STEP 3

Highlight the edges of windows, doors and details with a black marker. Set aside.

 

Mark on the chalkboard where the plaque will be glued. Set the plaque aside and draw a scene with the white chalk marker.

 

Use the Summer Linen color with a small paintbrush and highlight the white drawing.

 

Glue plaque to the chalkboard in the designated place.

 

Set house in front of chalkboard to display.
