Please Stop in for Spell – Free Halloween Printable

 Today we have a fun Halloween Printable. Of course I made a Harry Potter Version too!

This print can easily be framed, but you can also step it up some and create an awesome front door hanger!

In order to do that I needed to make it weather/waterproof.  I used the Harry Potter Version for my front door.

I bought a piece of wood that was slightly larger than my print.

I stained my wood with Minwax Dark Walnut stain. After it dried, I sprayed it with a light coat of Shellac to make sure none of the stain could bleed through onto my paper. Next you will need Mod Podge in Matte and an old paint brush.

I printed my print and trimmed the white edges off. It is best to take an ink pad and rub it along the edges. It really ensures the whole thing looks old and aged.

Spread an even layer of Mod Podge over your wood. It can be bigger than the print, because it dries clear, so it won’t matter.

Lay the print down and press it flat. Let it dry over night to make sure it doesn’t bubble up. When the excess on the top was dry enough I placed a piece of foil over it for added protection. Then placed some heavy flat objects on the top.

In the morning I added a thin layer of Mod Podge over the top.

I suggest doing a 2nd coat of Mod Podge after the 1st coat has completely dried! After the second coat dries completely, spray it with Shellac to give it extra protection. After the Shellac dried it was as simple as drilling some holes and stringing burlap through it.

It really boosts the front door appeal and turns a boring wreath into a statement!
