Halloween Gallery Wall! Great prints and ideas for the perfect Halloween display!

For those who missed it on Eighteen25 last week I wanted to share with you the tutorial I shared…

As Halloween approaches I’ve obviously been thinking of decor and what I wanted to do for my house. I knew I wanted an awesome entryway and decided this year to use mostly White, Black and Silver decor with accents of orange. With that in mind I decided to come up with a Spooktacular Halloween Gallery Wall with a creepy tablescape. I hope you like it… πŸ˜€

Almost everything in the picture above was made, except for the pumpkin and few pieces on the right (purchased at Marshall’s). Even the table was made (thanks to the hubby!!)

MY OTHER RECIPES

To begin I decided to make a few Subway Art pieces. The first one is inspired by a Subway Art Drawer from Matthew Mead that I fell in love with listing several spooky Halloween locations (He actually has a printable of it for sale HERE). I changed mine up a bit and added a few more cities that I either made up or found online that are real locations here in the U.S. Here is how I made it…

SUBWAY ART SIGNS

SUPPLIES:

– Wood (1 ft x 2 ft)

– Vinyl

– White Spray Paint

– Black Spray Paint

– Polyurethane

– Sand Paper

Silhouette

DIRECTIONS:

1. Begin by spray painting your piece of wood white. You can use craft paint as well, but I love Rustoleum Spray Enamel. It works so well with the vinyl and looks really nice! Let your paint dry.

2. As the paint dried I designed my vinyl and cut it out using my Silhouette. Peel and add adhesive to your vinyl.

3. From there I added my vinyl (which can be any color since you’re only using it as a stencil) to my board, and peeled off the adhesive. My Lily is always happy to help with my crafting and helped me pull it off. πŸ™‚ (NOTE: You do not have use the vinyl as an adhesive. If you want to use it for the lettering just paint your piece and add your vinyl on top).

4. From there I spray painted the board the color I wanted it to be (in this case, black) and let it dry. I peeled off the vinyl and sprayed it with Polyurethane. Let dry.

This is the finished product:

I also decided to make another one that was a little smaller. Directions are as the same as above but this piece is only 1 ft x 1 ft.

Saw the saying at the store “May All Your Pumpkins be Plump” and loved it!!

What’s great about these signs are they are quick and easy and only cost a few dollars to make!

From there I decided to make a 31 sign, another inspiration from Matthew Mead (if you don’t know who he is, go check out his website or his awesome magazines!!) He also lots of vintage Halloween downloads on his site two of which I used last year for my Spooktacular September post.

Making the 31 sign is super simple. Here is how to do it:

Halloween 31 Sign

SUPPLIES:

– Vinyl

Silhouette

DIRECTIONS:

1. Find your frame (I got mine for a few dollars at Goodwill) and spray paint it your desired color. I painted mine black.

2. From there I designed my 31 on my Silhouette. The font used is: Elite Script Heavy.

3. Add 31 to frame.

Hang and enjoy!!

I love how simple and easy the 31 sign was. It was the perfect focal point for my gallery wall and was also made for only a few bucks.

To finish off the gallery wall it was really simple. I bought some more frames at Goodwill, spray painted them and added some spooky pictures.

The photos are actually of mine and my husband’s ancestors. I found some vintage Halloween and cat faces online (again, some found from Matthew Mead – can you tell I LOVE the guy?) and photoshopped the heads onto the vintage images to create some fun but spooky pictures.

For 5×7 images Part 1 go HERE and for Part 2 go HERE.

For 8×10 images Part 1 go HERE, for Part 2 go HERE, for Part 3 go HERE,Β for Part 4 go HERE, for Part 5 go HERE and for Part 6 go HERE.

I just got them laser color printed at the local copy store, cut them out and placed them in the frame. From there I added the pictures to the wall using command strips so I wasn’t putting a gazillion holes in the wall (hubby’s new rule, lol!!)

I LOVE how the gallery wall turned out!!

From there I topped things off with the few pieces I bought from Marshalls along with a banner.
