Trick or Treat Sign


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!
