We were in this fancy schmancy boutique in Seaside last weekend. It was all decked out in fall and Halloween decor. I saw this cute sign sitting on a side table. Foam board with the word Boo! printed on it.
Another little sign had the words Give Thanks. They wanted $17. each for them.Not happening...
It was one of those moments when you look at something and say. . .Thats really cute, but I could make that myself in about 15 minutes. So thats what I did.I took a piece of scrapbook paper with some writing print on it, then I inked it up so it looked old. I think the one in the store might have used a page from an old book. If I had an old book, thats what I would have used too, but this was the next closest thing I could think of.
Then I printed the word Boo on it. Just realized that I forgot the ! ... darn it.
Anyway, I cut some black foam core 1" larger than the paper and glued it down. I considered using some black chipboard I had, and it would have worked too, but I like the thickness of the foam core board...After that I just stuck a bow on it and was done!
Just the finishing touch I needed for the entry hall table.
I'm going to make a few more of these, for thanksgiving and another for Christmas.
