This is such a fun and easy project! They showed it on air when I was on Studio 5 (KSL's local daytime show). If you would like to make one for yourself, or something similar, here's what to do.
1. The frame was purchased at my local craft store for $14.00. It's actually not a frame, it was a blank, metal sign. So, I simply covered over the flat metal center with paper, using a tape runner to adhere it in place.
2. Then I wrapped our Vintage Mix Blackboard with yellow thread. This is the most difficult and time consuming part of the project (it took about 15 minutes and my 11 year old could have done it just as fast). Here are my tips: use a glue dot to stick your thread to the back of the blackboard letter. For letters with holes (O, P, A) use a needle to help you wind the thread through the holes. Finish off by sticking a second glue dot down over the thread, then stick in place (no more adhesive is necessary..... the glue dots will do the trick).
3. Cover over your Haunted Blackboard shapes with their matching die-cut stickers and adhere as shown.
4. You're done! If you want me to make this harder with lots more steps and complicated instructions, I can, but I really don't think it's necessary.
