All you need today is a scrap piece of wood (look on the side of the road, or go grab one from your neighbors scrap pile), some sharpies (or paint if you prefer), and a little pinterest inspiration.
Today’s inspiration comes from Kristen at EllaClaire. I found Kristen’s work when she was a finalist in Whisperwood Cottages Talent Scouting Party for Autumn decor (I’m number 7, toot toot).
I feel in love with her Pumpkin sign, and you will too.
So let’s go…
Start by free handing the words you’d like on your sign. I’m super creative and copied Kristen’s words
e x a c t l y.
(why fix it if it’s not broken, so go ahead and copy mine too).
Don’t worry if you think your printing is crappy. You want it to look hand made.
The quicker you work, the better it looks. So don’t spend all day on this part people.
I also added an edge of paint around the edges (where else?).
Fill it in…
Get wild and crazy and go back with a black sharpie and create a shaddow.
