Kid's Halloween Subway Art

Subway Art is all the rage amongst the crafty bloggers lately. Have no clue what subway art is? Well, it's basically words on canvas or a painted board (or something similar.) The words all relate to one subject, like fall or Halloween for example. It basically reminds me of a Wordle and Noah and I used to love making Wordles.

Many crafters are using their Cricut or Silhouette cutters to cut the words and create their subway art. I do have a Slice but I'd have to cut each individual letter for each word and that would be A LOT of cutting.

So, recently I was at Target and saw a sheet of Halloween stickers in the dollar spot that had all different descriptive words relating to Halloween. I thought that it would make cute Subway art and it would be a small project that Noah and I could do together. (He loves any project with stickers.)I bought the stickers, some glittery paper, and a large Halloween sticker. (All from the Target Dollar Spot.)

The other night Noah and sat out to work on it. I had previously glued down the black paper to a piece of canvas I already had. Together we put the large Halloween sticker in the middle. I read the descriptive words on the other stickers to him and we chose which ones to use. I peeled them off and put them about where I thought they should go on the canvas and then he banged patted them into place. He is the best sticker-patter-downer I know!

It turned out pretty cute and was fun for us to do together!
