I have this super cute ladder that I like to decorate for every holiday. I decorated it for spring/Easter and loved the look of it. I wanted to decorate for Halloween, the only problem was that I couldn’t just run down to the store in Utah (like I did for the Easter one) and get wood shapes that I wanted. So I had to get creative. I really badly wanted shapes for it, so I broke down and bought a band saw. And I’m so glad that I did, it’s awesome!
This is how I made it:
I drew all the shapes onto the wood and then my husband cut it out with the band saw. It’s super awesome and does a really good job cutting it. One day I’m going to get the guts to try it out.
Here are all of the shapes cut out of the wood.
I painted all of the wood and then added glitter to all of them (because I love glitter!).
For the blocks, I put some scrapbook paper on them with mod podge. I used the sparkle mod podge for the top layer.
I added some white vinyl and some ribbon to hang them up.
And here are all of the pieces all done and painted. The candy corn.
The pumpkin. I added raffia and wire for the leaves.
The ghost. I added vinyl for the face.
The witch’s hat. I just tried some tulle around it to decorate it.
And the complete ladder. I love it and can’t wait to decorate it for every holiday!
So fun! Thanks for sharing tutorial .
Hope you have an amazing week!
