Cute for Halloween or your other Vampire themed parties
A Twilight-inspired wall hanging that I made to hang in our office for Halloween... to go with my Alice Cullen costume. It'll reside in my bedroom after Halloween's over.

This is a pretty simple project, but it is quite time consuming.

  • How to make a plaque / sign. Twilight Zone Wallhanging - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start with a dollar store wall hanging. As soon as I saw this one that said Vampire Zone, I had to buy it... but then as I kept looking at it, it just seemed too boring, like a project waiting to happen.

    Step 2

    Sand the wall hanging down, so that the glue can grip a bit better. It doesn't have to be perfect...

    Also, it would probably be better to detach the wire at this point... but I was lazy and decided not to.

    Step 3

    Begin layering your paper. I started with the tissue paper, then began layering scrapbook paper on top.
    I'm not sure what the deal was with that grey/black diamond paper, but it really buckled a lot & the grey rubbed off as I glued.
    It wasn't a big deal, just something to be aware of.

    You'll notice that all my letters and embellishments are already cut out... this is important for placement purposes.

    Step 4

    As you continue layering, you should have an idea in your mind of what you want the final hanging to look like. Occasionally, you should check the positioning of your letters/embellishments so that you can make adjustments.
    (For instance, I realized in between the last step and this one that black would look better behind the "twilight" layer, so I started adding some black scrapbook paper)

    Step 5

    Once you're happy with your paper decoupaging, glue your letters into place.

    Then add embellishments like glitter, sequins & rhinestones (you can see those in the main/final image above)

    And you're done! From boring dollar store sign to fab Twi-decor ;)
