"The Witch is In" Halloween Sign created by using quilt fabric panel.

Cute Halloween sign using quilt fabric panel.

The panel I used is from the "Every Witch Way" line from Wilmington Prints. I fell in love with these prints the moment I saw them and knew that I wanted to try something new. The panel is modge podged onto a piece of plywood. I purchased the piece from Home Depot. It was already cut to 2' x 4'. I just had them trim the bottom off about another 4 inches to fit my fabric panel. You can find the panel on our online store:

Step 1

I painted the plywood with white craft paint to keep the wood from showing through.

 Step 2

I laid out the fabric panel over the wood panel making sure that the panel was centered.

 Step 3

I secured the fabric to the wood using binder clips. This will keep the fabric from shifting as you apply the modge podge.

 Step 4

Working with one area at a time, apply the modge podge to the wood and then re-apply the fabric.

Step 5. Apply modge podge to the top of the fabric panel to seal. I applied two coats. I waited overnight between coats but it dries fast and you may not need to wait that long. I also painted the back of the sign black and applied modge podge to seal the wood.

Super easy halloween throw pillow covers

I really love these prints together.  This is an ideal combination for someone who is looking for something fun for Halloween that is a little different and modern. I think it is the perfect way to add a little bit of the holiday but is not overwhelming. The Halloween print is from the Riley Blake Designs "Happy Haunting" line by Deana Rutter. I also used a basic yellow/gray dot from Riley Blake Designs.

I used 1/2 yard of each print. I finished both of the outer edges. Then I overlapped the ends to form an 18 inch square. Sew the raw edge sides together to form and envelope. Now all you have left to do is insert your pillow.
