    SUPPLIES:

    • Wood Plaque- 8 1/2 x 11 x1/2
    • Chalkboard Paint
    • brush or sponge
    • chalk
    • glue gun
    • mdf word “halloween”  (can be found at hobby lobby Halloween isle)
    • Spider accent
    • White vinyl & craft cutter (optionl)

    OPTIONAL CANVAS MOUNT

    • 16×20 blank canvas
    • painters tape
    • black paint

    Step 1: Paint your plaque using chalkboard paint and brush. Works best to do several coats. Let it dry between each coat. If you are going to mount your plaque on canvas, you can tape off stripes on your canvas and paint stripes to dry. (Sorry I don’t have pics of this step because I used a canvas I had painted last year that was sitting around, I love re-using items!)

    Step 2: After the paint has dried, cut out your vinyl words. If you don’t have a vinyl cutter you can paint them freehand or use chalk since its all chalkboard. I used a basic font and cut out the words “days” and “until”. I laid out the “Halloween” and eyeballed the size of lettering and where I wanted to apply it. When you have your placement ready, you can apply them to the plaque.

    Step 3: Using hot glue, glue on MDF Halloween word in the center of plaque.

    Step 5: Now you can use chalk to season the chalkboard where you will write your countdown.

    OPTIONAL Step 6: If you would like to mount the plaque on the canvas, you can hot glue it directly to the painted canvas.

    Now you’re ready to countdown to Halloween!
