Easy Pumpkin Signage

Easy Peasy Lemon Pumpkin Squeezey


Here is a very simple fall project anyone can do to add to their fall decor!

I had a few scraps left over from some of my other fall decorations
and decided I would put them to good use...






This little chalkboard sign took no time at all. 

I started with a piece of scrap wood that I painted with chalkboard paint...easy.






I cut one of those faux pumpkins in half...easy.






I glued the pumpkin to my chalkboard...easy.





I glued some spanish moss, a leaf and stem, 
and a blackbird, I had on hand, to the pumpkin and board with a hot glue gun...easy.





I printed up the font I wanted to use for chalking my sign...easy.

Transfered and traced...easy.





DONE!! :)






My front porch...






A Star Spangled Pumpkin??


In light of the elections coming up, 
I wanted to paint a pumpkin that went along with that.

We live in such a great country,
where we are fortunate to have a VOTE that counts!


Please, Please, Please exercise this right!

And pray for our Nation!! <3














GOD BLESS THE USA!!

Blessings - Sara

  5. Sara, this little sign is adorable! I would love to make something similar. When you transfer and trace, do you mean you just trace it so that you get an indentation and then use that as your guide? I have a zillion signs I want to make. I also just trashed a ton of wood drawers I could have painted like this because my front yard was covered with about 13 of them I got out of trash piles today (for the hardware). I couldn't think of what to do with the wood asap so they weren't piled up in the house. It was nice wood too. I knew I'd regret throwing it away. Ah well! The trash men already came and it's not like there's no other wood lying around from previous trash days. :) I will take your lead and see what I can do.

    1. Liz - The drawers would be so cute painted this way!! Same thing happened to me this summer. We threw out an old dresser that had a lot of water damage, it was so bad the drawers didn't fit anymore, but after the junk yard man came to pick them up I kicked myself to the curb for not keeping the drawers. Actually, I just drew over the top of the letters with a piece of chalk on the back of my paper that I printed off. Then placed it on top of wood where I wanted it and traced with a pencil. The chalk transfers to the wood well enough that you can go over the top of that. Does that make sence? I have been using this method for a long time on lots of projects...can't remember who taught me to use chalk...maybe my mom. Hopefully it will work well for you :) Have fun! Can't wait to see what you come up with!
