Outdoor Halloween Decor {Subway Art}

I was getting out the tables for the annual “break the fast” dinner after Yom Kippur and I saw this wood that I don’t remember seeing before. I might have remembered seeing it but it was for sure old and ugly and really, I am kind of hoping it didn’t have a purpose because I turned it into this:

An outdoor subway art sign as part of this years Halloween decorations and I think that it is much cuter than it started!!

Here is how I did it!!

I grabbed the ugly piece of wood and spray painted it orange. Of course spray paint was the answer. Then I got out the chipboard pack and started finding words.

Now, you will probably notice that this sign is lacking things like “halloween” “eek” “treat” and, well, other words with the letter “e” in them and that is because I ran out, but I wasn’t going to let that stop my sign making process- heck no!

Anyways, after I had all the letters I needed, I painted them black.

I felt like the board was missing something so I grabbed a pale yellow and a wreath form, the form became my stencil for my moon and I filled it in with the pale yellow. Much better.

Then I replaced the words and hot glued them down.

That simple!

Free and from what I hope was garbage from my garage!!
