Boo Halloween Paper Mache Letters

Happy Halloween!  I wanted to share a set of paper mache letters that I did awhile ago.  My plan was to use the current Halloween Night Designer Series Paper on the back of these letters since these particular letters are the same from either side.

I have letters for nearly every season and one element I use in each of them are these triangles with Glimmer Paper circles at the points.

These letters are about 10" tall, but most of the ones I make are a bit shorter.  These are easy to find at most big box craft stores.

I start by painting the backs and sides with acrylic paint -- a foam brush is the easiest to use. Then I trace the design onto paper, cut the paper out and glue on with white glue.  Then I embellish to my hearts content.  I find I get a more finished look when I sponge the edges with Soft Suede or Crumb Cake.

While most products I used are retired I hope this inspires you to create your own letters -- they are so much fun!

Have fun trick-or-treating!  Thanks for looking!
