You're heading in the right direction for some spooky fun by creating this FloraCraft® Halloween Directional Sign.
- Time:1-1/2 hours
1Use the foam cutter or serrated knife to cut the foam sheet into four, 3 inch x 36 inch long boards. Set aside one piece for the sign post. From the other three foam boards cut pieces of the following lengths: one 20 inch, one 18 inch, one 17 inch, one 16 inch and one 13 inch. The cuts do not need to be exactly straight, a little off will add to the rustic look. Cut a point in one end of each board as shown. Cut grooves into the opposite end of the boards for a weathered, broken board appearance. Use the knife to randomly shave away the crisp edges of the foam boards so they appear smooth and worn. Then, cut a corresponding piece of foam board for each of the signs and glue them to the Styrofoam.
2Paint all boards Lamp (Ebony) Black and let dry. Paint the 20 inch, 17 inch and 13 inch Orange, Green and Purple, respectfully, letting a little of the Lamo (Ebony) Black show through. Let dry.
3Arrange the foam boards smallest to largest as shown. Point the ends in the desired directions. Write the road names onto the sign boards (as shown or make up your own) with a coordinating fabric paint and let dry.
4Glue the sign together using low-temp glue, attaching the sign boards to the sign post at slightly irregular angles.
5Secure the cube into the container. Glue craft sticks into the bottom of the sign post and insert the post into the top of the cube. Secure with low-temp glue.
6Cover the top of the container with Spanish moss to conceal the foam. Stretch spider webs over the sign and container to embellish.
