Happy Halloween Fence Sign

If you’ve been following along with me for awhile, you may have noticed that I’m digging the fence board signs that I’ve been making. I have made several starting with a General Store one last year. It’s been so fun to make different ones for all the different holidays along the way. Now it’s time for a Happy Halloween Fence Sign
I painted the picket fence board black first, then used some vinyl lettering that I cut out with my Cricut to place over the painted board. Then I painted over the vinyl letters with a pumpkin orange paint. I did a couple thin coats of the orange paint, making sure that the black paint didn’t get fully covered. I liked that it looked so worn and spooky with a little bit of the black paint showing through. 
I did a little sanding on the edges to further the “worn” look. Then it was time to add a clear coat and some hangers to the back. This Happy Halloween Fence Sign is now ready to hang!!!
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
