My modem died!  That's why I haven't posted in a while. So, after a long technical delay, I'm back!  I thought I would share a little craft that I made, using the font from the photo above as inspiration.  (If you would like to learn how to make the project in the photo as well as download the free font for it, click here.  


I had this old rectangular canvas.  It was pretty beat up.  I threw some black craft paint on it, and then painted the word eek onto it using the same font.  I just free handed it, but if you don't want to do that, you can download the font, print and then enlarge it to your liking.  Then cut it out with an exacto knife to make a stencil, lay it on the canvas, outline it in pencil, and then paint in the letters with white craft paint.

I attached some black satin ribbon (baby blanket binding from Walmart) to the top, in case I decide to hang it.  The pumpkins are from the dollar tree, and you may remember my faux "bittersweet" from last year!

Now is also a good time to pick up crows from the dollar tree for decorating!


  1. Yep, seriously awesome. I'm totally pinning this so I'll have the printable on hand once my printer is unloaded from the moving van.

  2. How adorable. I love it. Happy to see you back.
