Making Memories with Art Projects and Craft Cuts
Today, we’re featuring our DIY Family Name Sign and DIY Happy Halloween art project in partnership with Craft Cuts.
As a mother, I strive to provide our children with long lasting, positive memories of us together as a family. With 6 kids, that makes for a lot of memories. Whether it’s traveling somewhere, playing a game or creating something artistic, those memories will go with our kids through their lives. We recently had an art night with some of our kids and created a Family Name sign and Happy Halloween sign using items from Craft Cuts, a fully creative workshop specializing in custom letters, numbers, shapes and more for home decor made of wood, metal, and foam.
We had a great time painting the letters and the big wooden pumpkin cutout we received from Craft Cuts. While we were painting, we talked about a variety of things as well, including how their day was, what they wanted to be for Halloween, and other random things. It was a lot of fun!
DIY Happy Halloween Pumpkin Sign
For our first art project, we chose to make a DIY “Happy Halloween” Pumpkin sign. Our kids are very artistic and love to create things, so this project this was a lot of fun for them, especially with Halloween just around the corner. This is the perfect Halloween project for families and is definitely kid friendly!
For our DIY Happy Halloween art project, we chose the Plump Pumpkin shape from Craft Cuts. The pumpkin was Baltic Birch as the style, with the longest dimension of the pumpkin being 23 inches and 3/8 inches thick. The words “Happy Halloween” were made with Script Wood Letters in the font of Dessert Menu Script. The letters were 3 inches tall and 1/8 inches thick.
We bought basic acrylic paints from Walmart. Since our paints didn’t come with an orange color, we mixed together the paint colors to get orange, as well as added texture to the pumpkin. We mixed Red, Yellow, and added in some black for different shades of orange. For the texture of the pumpkin, we added dark brown and black mixed with brown. Then painted the letters black with dots at the top. We finished by gluing the letters onto the middle of the pumpkin. I think it turned out really cute!!! What do you think??
DIY Wood Family Name Sign
For our second art project, we chose to make a DIY Wood Family Name sign. We used our own board as the background and then the Wood Family Name Kit from Craft Cuts. The kit (like the pumpkin and letters) were sent unpainted. The kit included letters spelling out “The Gurnee Family EST 2012,” as well as two unpainted decorative arrows. The font for the letters “The Gurnee Family” was in the font Dessert Menu Script.
