Boo! Halloween Sign {Pottery Barn Inspired}

Hello there friends! It’s been so hot around here that it has taken me a while longer than usual to get into the Fall spirit…Cooler temps and a little Pumpkin Spice in my Scentsy and I’m itching to fallify the house.  I like to decorate with fall decor that can be left up through Thanksgiving.  My kiddos love the cute Halloween decorations, so I add a few of those too.    

While flipping through a recent Pottery Barn Kids Catalog, I spotted this darling sign with a not-so-darling price tag.  I knew it would be so easy to make.   Pottery Barn Kids Inspired Halloween sign- made in 15 minutes!9- OneKriegerChick

Easy…and quick too…like Craft Lightning 15 minutes or less kind of quick…

Don’t believe me, well just see for your self…

Supplies you’ll need:

Scrap wood, paint, paintbrush, vinyl ghost and lettering cutouts, paint pen and sandpaper.

Let’s see how fast we can make this sign (Note: the 15 minutes does not allot for drying time)…

Paint over the vinyl decals with black paint.  I used chalkboard paint for a matte finish…I painted two thin coats- first vertically, then horizontally…Make sure to paint the sides of the board (I forgot and had to go back and do this step.)

You don’t have to use a perfect paintbrush for this- the imperfections give added texture to the paint… Pottery Barn Inspired Halloween sign- made in 15 minutes!20- OneKriegerChick Once the paint has dried, peel off the decals… Pottery Barn Inspired Halloween sign- made in 15 minutes!21- OneKriegerChick

Then, add the Ghost X-Ing by applying vinyl letters right on top of the paint.   Pottery Barn Inspired Halloween sign- made in 15 minutes!1- OneKriegerChick

I sanded all the edges of the board… Pottery Barn Inspired Halloween sign- made in 15 minutes!3- OneKriegerChick

For the dots around the edge, I just made a little line of dots using an orange Elmer’s paint pen all the way around the board.
