Can you believe it is already day 4 of our fun Halloween 5 Day Decorating Challenge? If you’re just joining in all the fun, my very sweet friend Katrin from over at Kreativ K and I are sharing 5 days straight of fun Halloween projects. All to share with you and make along with us. Today I’m sharing how to make a Wooden Halloween October 31st Candy Corn Sign.
Wooden Halloween October 31st Candy Corn Sign
To see what else we’ve been busy creating :
- Day 1 – Spooky Trick or Treat Sign
- Day 2 – Creepy Halloween Jute Spider Web Frames
- Half Way Day 3 – Halloween Pumpkin, Spider Ghost and Raven Paddles
- Day 4 – You’re here!
- Day 5 – Tin Can Jack O Lantern Halloween Holders
- A piece of pine cut into 250mm H x 60mm W Triangle – I used the 2 inserts from the legs of the Farmhouse Bench that I recently made. Or if you don’t have time to make one now I have them all painted over in my Shop!
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Tuscan Orange Sample
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Tone for Tote – Little Star Sample
- 12o grit Sandpaper
- October 31st Stencil
- Old Store Card
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Lamp White Sample
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Coal Black Sample
- Painters Tape
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Beeswax
Step 1 – Using your painter’s tape, tape off the lower part of the candy corn. I eyeballed my space from the bottom but if you would prefer to measure feel free too!
Step 2 – Pop out some Little Star on an old plate and paint away below the line. Let completely dry. Peel away your painters tape and then reapply along the line of Little Star. Then tape another line above which is where you will then block in your Tuscan Orange.
Step 3 – Repeat the process until you get the above effect using Lamp White at the very top. Once completely dry grab your sandpaper and distress to your liking.
Step 4 – Remove the backing paper from the October 31st Stencil and align on your candy corn. Press down firmly with your old store card to ensure there are no air bubbles. Pop some Coal Black paint out onto your old plate. Then using your foam wedge begin stencilling. Let completely dry. Peel away your stencil and use your craft knife to remove any of the vinyl that is still stuck to the candy corn. Then distress to your liking.
Step 5 – Then seal in all your hard work with some yummy wax! Add a little jute bow and voila you’re all done!
There you have a fun candy corn all ready to decorate with!
