Halloween Subway Art

Subway Art is a fun and trendy way to spice up your Halloween decor!  I found making this VERY fun!  I loved finding spooky, ghostly and creepy fonts!  I had the most fun was arranging it all, like a puzzle, making it fit and look fabulous!

Halloween Subway Art!


Want to make one of your own?  Here's the how to:

SUPPLIES:

One board whatever size you prefer.  Mine is 12x18 MDF board.  You can use glass too!
Vinyl in preferred colors and transfer tape
Paint
Glaze
Paint Brush

DIRECTIONS:
1. I painted my board white, then glazed over it using a gray/black tint.
2. With black paint, paint on spider webs in desired areas.


3. Cut out Halloween words in different sizes, fonts, and colors.  I cut out a witch hat, spider, pumpkin, black cat and spooky tree to fill in the little spaces.

4.  Arrange on the board to achieve the look you are going for.
5. Apply your vinyl.


There you have it!  Pretty simple and really fun!  If you don't have a "cutting" machine to cut out vinyl, you can always paint it on free hand!

Happy Haunting!!

I don't have a cutter and my subway art took me 3 days. What kind do you have? I'm trying to decide what to get for myself. :-) Sandra

Sandra, I used my Cricut and the Sure Cuts A Lot (aka SCAL) program. I love my Cricut and love it now even more that SCAL has provided so many more options other than expensive Cricut cartridges. Tara has the Silhouette cutting machine and has been very happy with it.

Hope that helps!!! Good luck and let me know what you end up getting.

This so fun! I asked Santa for SCAL for Christmas, to use with my Cricut! Do you have a good place to get vinyl?

Julie McRae said...

Ash, I usually just buy vinyl from our local craft store (Roberts) and sometimes online. I haven't found anything fabulous yet. But if I do, I will let you know!
