Easy to Make Party Signs

Foam board and Modge Podge have become 2 of our new best friends.  We want to cover as much of the inside of the house as possible with True Blood related decor.  If we could paint the walls black and red without my husband having a heart attack, we would..lol.  But since that's not an option, we create our own True Blood art to hang on the walls.  

Inside our Fangtasia, we have a door that we decorate as "The Fangbanger's VIP Lounge".  We found some awesome red foil wrapping paper at our Dollar Tree, ordered some black tulle from Ebay for $2 and printed our sign on card stock.  Tape the foil paper to the door to cover it entirely, run the black tulle along the top and sides of the door frame and stick the sign in the middle!

We changed up our sign a little this year :)

Of course you also need to have a "No Biting on Premises" sign, just as a warning so your guests don't go into a feeding frenzy. This can also be printed on a sheet of card stock.  Frame it or just use clear tacks to pin it on the wall.

We have a banner that hangs over our tv inside Fangtasia.  This is printed on card stock and using ribbon or twine, you can attach the images together and hang it.

Last year's banner can be seen here.

Using the Poster software from the Cutouts, you can make some posters/advertisements to hang in Fangtasia, Merlottes or the Moon Goddess.  Using the same method as the Merlotte's Sign, piece your photos together and use Modge Podge to glue and seal your image to a sheet of foam board.  Here are a few of the photos we used this year.

Our Fangtasia sign is made by the same method.  This hangs over the entrance to the den and a black window scarf is draped around the doorway with some red lights behind it.

As you can see, you can make any pic you like into a sign/poster for your party.  With the Modge Podge seal, they can be stored and used each year!  Let's hope we have many more years to celebrate our favorite obsession!
