Treat-or-Treat Sign

Lorraine from South Meets Southwest created this Halloween sign as a craft prize for Bunco night with the girls. (And let me say that I love the idea of everyone bringing a craft to exchange as a prize!) She used a ballpoint pen to leave the imprint for her text and then painted it in.
