Signs of Fall

Welcome to everyone from ASPTL's DIY Day! This is a post from earlier this week but I thought I'd share it with all of you too :o) A little background...I had a few boards laying around and some extra time on my hand this past weekend so I thought I'd do some painting. I'm very impatiently waiting for fall so I decided to go with a couple fall type paintings.

****************

Here are the finished products from the sneak peek.

It's kinda hard to see, but I glittered the little jack-o-lantern faces with some Martha glitter (my favorite!).


The Halloween sign is just over a foot long and the hay ride sign is just over 2 feet long. I used to chalk and trace method like I did here. A fun little project that kept me busy for a few hours. Now I just have to wait til I can put them up!

Those are great signs. I saw some at the local farmer's market (not halloween). I want to get creative enough to try to make some to decorate my home with.
