This project starts with an adorable kit from Twin Knobs Woodworks. When you order you can choose to add the “Boo” or bat cutout to the bottom. For this project, I decided to go with the “Boo”.
I began by painting the ghost cutout with the color Endless Shore. I used a medium sized paint brush to do this.
Next, I used a makeup sponge to paint the word “Boo” with the color Caviar.
I used the same color and method to paint the eyes.
Then, I used the color Rusty Nail to paint the ghost’s glasses.
I also added some little details to the glasses and “Boo” cutout using a detail tool and Bright White Chalkology Paste.
You can see the details I added below.
Next, I added some extra interest to the ghost cutout by using the Elegant Flourish Transfer from Chalk Couture.
To do this I simply placed the transfer onto the surface and added a layer of Bright White Chalkology Paste.
Once I was finished adding the transfer and allowed it time to dry, I grabbed these Distress Crayons and added a bit of shading to the project.
The first one I used was in the color Vintage Photo. I just added a bit of the product to a makeup sponge and pounced it onto the areas I wanted to add some shading to.
Holy moly!!! Where have these been all my life?!? This makes shading dreamy!!
You can see the difference the shading makes in the photo below.
I also used the Black Soot colored Distress Crayon to shade the glasses.
Once everything was painted, shaded and dry I glued it all together.
Finally, I applied a layer of Tobacco Road Gel Stain to the back to give it a more finished look.
And here’s my finished product. It has the perfect mix of cute and spooky!
This would also be an adorable door hanger!
