Authentique's Enchanted Boo Holiday Decor by Guest Designer SaLee Phillips

This was a fun, quick and pretty simple project to make. These letters can be hung on the wall, adhered to piece of wood, or on a deco mesh wreath! Lots of options with these MDF letters.

1. Paint the letters black with the acrylic paint

2. Coat each letter with Mod Podge and cover with a sheet of decorative paper
3. Using an exacto knife, cut out the letter (you can trace the letter on the paper and cut with scissors if you prefer, but I like to to use a craft knife for a more precision cut).
4.  Using Tim Holtz distressed ink in Black Soot and the applicator tool, distress the edges of the letters with the ink to give it more depth. Please add these two items to the supply list).
5. Once the paper is adhered to the letter, coat with Mod Podge and sprinkle with Martha Stewart Glow in the Dark Glitter (add this item to the supply list)
6.  Letter "B":  stick on the Jolee's haunted tree, crows and moon; hot glue the feathers to the top left corner; put sticker on metal cameo (this was something I had left over) but when I did a workshop, I cut out a cameo shape from a Cricut cartridge and used Stampendous Glitter Glass on it---it turned out even better than the metal one I used; add the October 31st sticker to the tree.
7.  Letter "O":  wrap some spider webbing around the letter; hot glue the stickers on; stamp was the My Minds Eye new Halloween stamp which I stamped with black and put Glossy Accent Crackle on (another sticker from the collection can also be used in place of the stamp); I also put the crackle on the big sticker; stick on a few spiders from Jolees and black flowers from Petaloo (add to list of products)
8.  Letter "O":  Glossy Accent the stickers; used the Alcohol Ink patina  (black and ocher) to the metal skulls then hung them on the O with a small chain; spray some black Mister Hueys on the gauze and place under the sticker---another GREAT option is using black tulle or use both for more fun!
