I cannot believe that tomorrow is Halloween! Although much of this year felt like it dragged, now looking back it feels like it flew by. The best way I’ve kept my sanity with the craziness of the year is through things I love to do. Spending time with my fiancé and dog, cooking, and crafting. There is a comfort in turning simple ingredients into a delicious meal or taking pieces that apart look boring but together look beautiful.
This sign was a comfort to me during a rough week at work. I was overwhelmed, overworked, and tired. I turned to Michaels Craft Store during a lunch hour to get away from the nonstop requests flowing in and found relief in walking the aisles, looking for a project. I happily gathered the supplies and returned home with a pep in my step because I had a craft to look forward to at the end of the day.
- Round Wooden Pallet Sign
- CraftSmart Satin Paint: Black
- White Cardstock
- Glitter Letter Stickers
- Halloween Ribbon
- Black Pen
- Hot Glue Gun
Begin by painting the front and back of the wooden sign entirely, let dry.
While the sign is drying, trace 3 ghosts onto the white cardstock and cutout. The picture below can be used as a template. Use the black pen to draw the faces.
Begin to place all of the items onto the board. I began with the ghosts, then added the stickers. I ended with tying a bow with the ribbon and hot glued it to the sign.
Hang your finished sign and enjoy!
