Last year before Halloween I created a 24×36 inch print of the entire poem “The Raven” by Edgar Allen Poe. I had it printed at Staples as an engineering print, so it only cost a few dollars, and then I used spray adhesive to mount it onto a piece of MDF from Home Depot. The total cost (not including adhesive) was around $12. I decided it was time to start decorating for Halloween, so I brought it up from the basement the other day and set it up on my piano, which acts kind of like a mantle. I surrounded it with towers of books, some cobwebs from the dollar store, and my book paper pumpkin.

I created the printable in two options – the one that’s pictured here, which is white text on black, and then the reverse. Download the black background here. These are large files, so it might take a minute to show up.

See this post for more instructions on how to mount the prints on MDF.
I found the little raven that’s perched on the book paper pumpkin at the dollar store. He kinda completes the scene perfectly.
