DIY Beetlejuice Silhouette on Wood

So my second project is the Beetlejuice Silhouette. You can see my Reindeer Head Canvas here.

Don’t say his name three times or he comes! Ah!


  • 3 wood slices
  • 3 pieces of black yardstick
  • Modpodge
  • Xacto knife
  • Cutting board
  • Stencils (I googled them)
  • White or off-white paint (I chose acrylic satin)
  • Sandpaper
  • Wood sealer spray
  • Finishing sealant spray
  • Picture hanging clips

For the stencils, I used The Shadow Studio’s versions.  Unfortunately, she no longer sells these on her etsy store, but you can still find images of them on Pinterest or google.  I used these.

  1. Sand down your wood slices as prep to smooth the surface.
  2. Spray with wood sealer on both sides. Let dry overnight.
  3. Using a sponge paintbrush, carefully paint each slice with paint. I would suggest you do at least 2-3 coats, as the wood still soaks up the paint despite the sealer. Let dry.
  4. In the mean time, begin cutting out your silhouettes with your xacto knife. Be VERY careful, as there are spots where your knife can easily rip a connection.
  5. Modpodge each silhouette and position on each slice of wood. Go over the top of each silhouette with modpodge, then let dry.
  6. Finish it up by spraying each with finishing spray to seal it.
