Spooky Halloween Sign, Using the ink transfer method and old wood

Halloween has been growing on me over the last few years...not sure why, but I have been really getting into the Spooky decor that comes with this holiday. It has especially been fun to let my kids get involved and this project was perfect for them. With a piece of old wood and some scrap chain I made a funky sign that quickly turned spooky with the help of some free Halloween dingbats...which my kids helped me pick!

Using screw eyes and chain I attached the boards together. Since the edges of the board I used were uneven I had to do different lengths of chain on some sides, which only added to the "spooky" look.

Using an inkjet printer, I printed my dingbat images reversed onto wax paper. Then I placed the waxed paper onto the wood and rubbed the image with a card...instant image transfer!
