this is halloween – DIY wooden halloween signs


Leave it to Halloween to get me back on the blog – it is my favorite holiday after all! I have a ton of decorations I made last year, but this year I wanted to take it up a notch. The house has been decorated since September 29th. The hubby is sure they neighbors think we are insane but I want to get the most out of my decorations. I decided to add some DIY wooden Halloween signs to the interior decor this year.

I bought some cheap wooden signs forms from Michaels on sale earlier this year and had no idea what to do with them. I’ve been downloading fun Halloween designs from the Silhouette store for months to get ready for this time of year and they finally came in handy!

After a light sanding, I spray painted my signs with white and gray spray paint, lightly and unevenly. I used my Silhouette to cut out the image on vinyl and used some craft paint to get to fill in the stencil

Once the paint dried, I distressed it all with light sandpaper. I’m not usually a fan of distressed anything but it works perfectly for Halloween.

I’ve done a bunch to the exterior of the house, throughout the dining room and bar and even in my office. Not my home office, but my day job office. Can’t wait to show you everything. What I love about these wooden Halloween signs is that they will last for years to come.

Thanks for following Directions Not Included!
