Spooky "Keep Out!" Sign

Spooky "Keep Out!" Sign

What we used...
  • 1 SPC Natural Wood Panel Pallet 11.75"x 23.75"
  • Ceramcoat Acrylic Paints
    • Crimson
    • Lime Green
    • White
    • Black
  • Americana Walnut Gel Stain
  • 1 Black Cardstock Smooth 12"x 12"
  • 1 Black Poster Board
  • Hot Glue Gun - High Temp
  • Scissors
  • Synthetic Paint Brushes
  • Pencil
Prep your wood piece by wiping it down first, and paint your SPC Wood Panel with your Brown Gel Stain. While that dries, go ahead and prep your Black Poster Board by trimming down to fit right on the back side of your wood panel. For a little 3D fun, cut out two creepy hands from your black cardstock. I have pretty creepy looking hands so I used my own hand for reference and traced around it. Rework your outline to make it more creepy, if you don't have creepy hands to begin with, before you begin cutting.

Now that your panel is dry, place it onto of your poster board cutout and through the space between the panels draw out where your evil eyes and sinister smile will go. Set your panel aside and use your white for the smile, green Ceramcoat for the eyes. With your black Ceramcoat add the details in, pupils and outline the teeth. Check which way your sign is facing, it's rope should be pointing up. Then paint a lovely notice saying "KEEP OUT!" in red Ceramcoat just like so in the picture above. Don't forget to add some dripping blood to add that creepy factor. For the blood, I mixed a smidge black with the red to get it deeper. Slap a bloody hand print or two too.

With your Hot Glue Gun - High Temp, your going to glue your painted black poster board to the back side of your wood panel. Make sure your evil face is facing the right way, right side up. Check where your rope is. Once you're done gluing, turn it back over and glue your creepy hand cut out(s) onto the panels right between the spaces.

VOILA! Extra Creepy Ready for Halloween.
