The paper letters were cut at 8" and fit nicely on the chipboard letters. I inked the edges of the paper and the edges of the letters. I used ink for the chipboard letters since I couldn't find my black paint. It worked just fine but was a bit messy. I had to use a black sharpie to get into the corner tight spaces on the B, but that worked also.Cricut Teresa Collins Chic and Scary cartridge. I welded one of the spiders to the web on the cartridge and cut that out at 7-1/4" and adhered it. I also cut the pumpkin twice at 2-1/2"- one time with the mouth and eyes using orange glitter paper and then I used the "hide selected contour" feature on the Cricut Craft Room to make a solid layer behind the pumpkin.
Finally, I loved the ominous raven and wondered how to adhere him to the "O". The easiest thing to do was use of the Close To My Heart Flip Flap plastic sleeves, tuck the raven into it and then use tape to adhere it to the back of the "O".
Since I didn't Mod Podge the letters, I would only use this inside. If you did Mod Podge, you could probably risk this outside. The web is delicate but it would probably be fine on the front door, out of the weather.
