Project Instructions

  1. Cut an 8-inch x 12-inch rectangle from black felt. Cut a 7½-inch x 12-inch rectangle from purple felt and fringe the long sides, as shown. (Note: to fringe, make small cuts along the edge of the felt.) Glue the purple rectangle centered on the black rectangle.
  2. Glue the letters to the sign to spell "Spooks Welcome" or other message of choice.
  3. Use a pencil to draw a ghost onto white felt, a circle onto yellow felt and a bat onto black felt. (Note: Be creative! There is no right or wrong way to draw these figures.) Cut out. Glue the ghost and yellow moon to the sign. Glue the bat to the moon.
  4. Cut the desired length of ribbon for a hanger and glue to the back of the sign. Tie a piece of ribbon into a shoestring bow and glue to the ghost for a bow tie.
