Trick or Treat Sign

6:15 PM


Simple, orange stained Halloween Sign
and transfer method...



I began by printing out "trick or treat?" in the 
most Halloween-like font I could find...


I used carbon paper to trace the letters onto the board...


Using a table saw I cut 2 signs out of the wood...



I used my sample of Martha Stewart 
Persimmon Red paint... Love the color!


 adding a little water gives the wood an 
orange stain effect...


I let the signs dry and used a paint stick to 
paint in the letters...


I sanded the signs really well, added some rustys and a chain to the top for hanging.




 I tried my new Halloween sign in several places around my house to see which one I liked best...





Good thing I made two!

  8. Susan - Great job! The sign looks really cute everywhere but I think it's perfect against the brick wall on the porch with the creepy, crawly spider lurking nearby!

  9. I thought your sign was so cute. Thank you for taking the time to share with a lovely blog-make.
    I also smiled when I saw your mantle with the empty frame as display. I love that look - so simple - so chic.

  11. Cute sign. I have not heard of "paint sticks" before.
    Are they like felt tip markers??
