Halloween Full Moon Marquee Sign

October 6th, 2015 | Crafts, Halloween

It’s a month of full moons, black cats, and of course little munchkins ready to scare. Now that we’re into October I wanted to share a fun spoooooky Halloween Full Moon Marquee Sign I’ve been making with some products from Make It: Fun® Foam.

Make this Halloween Full Moon light up sign

The best part about making crafts with foam, is it doesn’t take any expensive tools, just a serrated Make It: Fun® Foam knife and Smooth Finish filler, so you’re able to paint your creation.

How to Make A Halloween Marquee Full Moon Bat Decoration

You will need

  • Flat board
  • 12″ FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Disc
  • 1 sheet of FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam
  • Yellow and black paint
  • 1 set of Mini lights
  • 1 hardboard measuring approx 18″high, by 14″ wide (I used a scrap piece of meranti) Home Depot has these pre-cut.
  • Drill with large bit
  • Smooth Finish
  • Serrated Knife
  • Hot glue gun

First you will need to cover the foam with a thin layer of smooth finish, allow to dry. Create a template or free hand bats onto your sheet of foam. Using you serrated foam knife, cut out each bat shape.

Paint all pieces including sides of your foam pieces, allow to dry.

Lay your foam disk (moon) onto the back side of your board, mark where you will drill around the moon. Using a drill with a large bit drill where you have marked.

Place a mini light in each hole from the back to the front.

On the front side hot glue the moon in place, then hot glue the bats into a flying pattern directly overtop the moon. *Most foam tutorials will suggest using low temp, however I use a regular gun, because it dries too quickly otherwise.*
