Today's Guest: Infarrantly Creative

Hello Spooktacular fans.  I am Beckie from Infarrantly Creative, Knock off Décor and Roadkill Rescue!  I am so excited to be here again for this fantastic series with some amazingly talented bloggers.  Here is my Halloween take on my Hershey Kiss Board.


Those numbers are actually inverted Hershey Kisses.  Kids love them, guests love them, and I have been known to snag a few myself.  Let’s get started.


Electric Drill

3/4 paddle drill bit

220 grit sandpaper

12” x 12” x 1/2” MDF board

Coordinating scrapbook paper

Hershey Kisses

Glue Dots

White cardstock (2 pieces)


Silhouette machine

Mod Podge

Foam brush or roller

Spray paint (I used Krylon’s  Black)





1.  Cut your 1/2” MDF board to a 12” x 12” size. (or have Home Depot cut it like I always do). Measure out where you want your kisses.  This is where you will drill your holes. Using a 3/4” paddle drill bit and en electric drill – drill your holes but do not go all the way through the board. The top of the bit will poke through the back but don’t drill the wide part of the bit more than 2/3 of the way. This will allow the Hershey kisses to set in there and stay.  This is what the bit looks like.

2.  Mark your holes and then drill them.  I measured every 1 1/4” and then drilled my holes.  This allowed me to have 10 holes across and 3 rows of them for a total of 30 kisses.  Then I drilled one more hole to accommodate #31 down below.

3.  Lightly sand the board with 220 grit sandpaper especially around the holes. Wipe it clean. Spray prime and paint it. 

4.  Next I used my Silhouette machine and created a spider web vinyl stencil and applied it to the board and taped the rest off and sprayed it silver metallic spray paint.


5.  Then I cut out “Happy Halloween” with my Silhouette machine and Mod Podged it onto the board, then coated it with a thin layer of Mod Podge with a foam roller so I wouldn’t get any lap marks.

6.  Martha Stewart has a new line of Halloween paper tape that I found at Michaels so I added that around the edges to give it a finished look.

7.  I then printed and cut out numbered circles 1-31 and applied them with Glue Dots to the back of the Hershey Kisses.
