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.
3/4 paddle drill bit
220 grit sandpaper
12” x 12” x 1/2” MDF board
Coordinating scrapbook paper
White cardstock (2 pieces)
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.
