Stacy from Not Just a Housewife recently had a momentous event occur in her creative blogging career – her very first knock-off! Woot woot! Her inspiration was a cutout star sign from Pottery Barn. Stacy went for a bit more rustic look, but, all in all, her sign is a dead ringer for PB’s. I sure hope this will be the first of many knock-offs for Stacy!
Not wanting to be left out of the Halloween decorating fun in her neighborhood, Lorraine from South Meets Southwest whipped up a few spooky signs to welcome trick-or-treaters to her house. Lorraine saved money by using wood from Home Depot’s scrap pile and paint she already had, making the grand total for all three signs $1.50! Lorraine says, “We might be the last house on our block to decorate for Halloween, but I am just glad I finished these signs before the first trick-or-treater arrived!”
Marisa of Marisa Howard Design saw a sign from Pottery Barn that would make a cute addition to her office and realized it would be simple to replicate for very little cost. As opposed to just painting on her text, Marisa created dimension by cutting the frame and letters from foam. She points out that the sign looks great on shelf or the office door.
