Halloween Door Hanger

***UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2012 I've received so many views and comments about this craft. Thank you for stopping by. If any of you make this or something similar, please send me a picture. I'll post all the pictures around Halloween for everyone to see. Let's share the creativity! Send your pictures to Subject: Halloween Door Hanger!

This craft was inspired by a Christmas craft we're making in my ward in a few weeks. The Christmas craft has a word spelled down it. I thought making Halloween faces would be fun.
I got these cork coasters for $1at D.I. (Otherwise known as Deseret Industries).
It's just a thrift store in my area. You could also pick up some thin wooden coasters at JoAnn's.

Traced and cut.

Glued on the green then added some black vinyl for hair. I would have probably just used black paper but I didn't have any. The vinyl worked great.

Added the whites of the eyes. It's just paper.

Added the black. It's vinyl.

Cute little eyebrows. Vinyl again. All my black shapes are vinyl.

I took a pencil and lightly drew a mouth and stitches.

Then I went over it with a pen.

The rest are similar. Added paper then vinyl :-)

The spiders legs are hot glued to the back. I went outside, grabbed some little twigs and spray painted them black. Pretty clever, I know!

I added hot glue to the ribbon and pressed the coasters down one at a time making sure they were center.

Make sure to apply Mod Podge to each coaster before hanging it outside.

So fun. So cheap. My kind of craft!
Happy Halloween!

  19. Mod Podge why/where exactly are you applying it?

    1. You'll want to brush mod podge over each finished coaster. It will protect it a little more and give it a finished look.

  20. I love this! So cute and so easy....not to mention inexpensive! My son loves to craft and this is definitely something he would enjoy. Thank you for sharing the idea and the 'know-how'.
