I know it’s only September but I love Halloween so much that I start decorating for it in September so I can enjoy the decorations longer. Changing up the theme each year can get expensive, one of the inexpensive home decors I like to use is letter boards. Today I’m going to show you how to make a DIY Letterboard icons using cardstock. Let's get crafting!

Supplies:

 

papers for spooky letterboard accessories

 

I used these images from Cricut Design #10232140, #M29131598, and #M249A0C0E. If you are using a Cricut, you can find the project by clicking here. If you are using another die-cutting machine, you can search your machine's software for things like "halloween," "gnome," "spooky," etc and choose some images that you like.

Next, use an electronic die-cutting machine to cut out all the pieces.

I used foam tape between each layer of "spooky" to give it a 3D effect.

For the parts that I did not use foam tape, I used Beacon Zip Dry glue. I love this glue because it dries quickly and you can rub off any excess with your fingers once it's dry.

Adhere the eyeballs with Zip Dry adhesive.

Now it's time to assemble the gnomes. A little tip, for images that have a lot of tiny parts, I like to use the offset feature on Design Space and cut out a shadow layer to use as a backing piece. It helps with gluing the tiny pieces on easier.

I used alcohol markers on the nose to add a little bit of shadow and polka dots on the hat

I attached the gnome to the center of the spider web using foam tape.

To attach a letterboard board backing, I use letters or shapes I don't use often and a glue dot.

You can use a more permanent adhesive like a glue gun but I know I am only using this temporarily so I want to be able to remove the letter easily once Halloween is over.

This is what it looks like once you adhere the glue dot to the back. This was a larger piece so I used 3 letter pegs.

Finally, it’s time to decorate! I used different alphabet colors to make it more fun and I also added embellishments like spiders and bats. I cut the bats out of the Black MirriSparkle paper.
