My kids love Halloween. Me? Not so much. Since Halloween plans look a bit different this year and they will be spending the night at home, I thought I would go all out and decorate the living room for Halloween instead of Fall like I usually do. With the help of my HomeRight Quick Finish sprayer, I created a Halloween mantel sign to complete the look!

I grew white pumpkins in the garden this year and my kids were excited to harvest them and use them in the decor.
Who doesn’t love the movie Hocus Pocus? A little nod to a Halloween classic 🙂 I’ve only ever done one other Halloween mantel, which was also black and white, and I used a few of the same elements.
I added my sign in my TV frame but you could prop it up on the mantel as well. I cut some hard board to the size of the inside of the frame.
I used my HomeRight Quick Finish to paint it all white.
I used vinyl lettering that I cut out with a machine as a kind of reverse stencil but you could also use store bought stencils for this next step.
Wait for the basecoat of paint to completely dry before adding tape to vinyl so you don’t risk peeling it off when you remove the stencil. Apply it to the sign the way you want it. If you stencil is not big enough to cover all the area you want, use painters tape to finish covering what you don’t want painted.
I sprayed a layer of black over the stencil. They key is to do a thin coat. If you get the paint too thick, it will be harder to get the stencil off without pulling paint off with it.
As soon as the top coat of paint isn’t tacky anymore, remove the stencil. If there are areas that the top coat is too thick and you are having a hard time peeling off, use a box cutter or X-acto knife to score along the edge.
The kids are happy with it and are ready for our Halloween night at home 🙂
