Treat-or-Treat Sign

trick 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. Lorraine says, “I went home with a very cute craft from the party, but I was still a little sad to have to part with my Halloween sign.” Looks like another sign’s in the making!

Laundry Definition Wall Sign

Last fall, I shared this definition sign I created for my new upstairs laundry room over at my other blog Infarrantly Creative.
