The Pin Junkie: Halloween Scrap Wood Painted Ghosts

When it comes to Halloween decorations, I prefer cute over gory and cute decorations don't get any easier than these Halloween scrap wood painted ghosts!  I had some scrap wood leftover from previous projects and since I never like to throw anything away, I decided to make some cute little ghosts.  I used different lengths of 2x4 pieces, but the measurements don't really matter.  You can make your ghosts as tall, short, or as wide as you'd like.  Just make sure you have straight cuts so that your ghosts are level and stand up straight.

I started by sanding the pieces of wood and painting them with primer.  When the primer was dry, I gave them a coat of white paint.  When that was dry, I painted some black ovals for the eyes and mouths.

That's it!
It's so easy it's scary!

  3. What a great idea. Even leave them up all year for decoration! Well, maybe not ghosts, but something else on the back! I like decorating, but hate taking it all down and putting it away! followed you from Masterpiece linky!
