October Overhaul - Pottery Barn Knockoff

I love these...
Wooden Halloween Hanging Signs.
but I am NOT spending $19 on EACH one.. so I made my own from my stash!
Pin It
I started with these pieces of pallet that I was saving for a crafty rainy day.
I cut them so that they had a point.
Then I painted two of them black and one of them orange.
Once the paint dried then I drew the letters
and hand painted each individual sign by hand.
Spooky Lab
Pumpkin Toss
Haunted House
Then I found a handsome handy hubby to drill some holes for hanging.. sorry ladies, you'll have to find your own.. mine's taken!
Then I tied some twine on each for easy hanging.
Then I hung them on the porch
so they swing in the breeze
and welcome our 3 trick or treaters!
Handpainted Pottery Barn knockoffs for nothing instead of $60 for all three!  Yay for me!
