The only difference in this project is that we used smooth finish 1x4 pieces of spruce to begin with (no need to cut them down this time). All the other steps are the same!
We cut down the 1x4’s to the desired height of the Halloween characters. After adding the strapping and sanding, we primed them using the same Beauti-Tone Designer Series Matte Interior paint, in the shade 'Powdered Donuts (WB024-0)
' we used for the pumpkins.
Next, we used craft paint to draw out some classic Halloween characters. I would recommend using a sharpie or paint pen for the eyes.
