I love autumn and all that it brings! We used to live in a small rural town where Halloween was a really big deal. There was a community parade, costume contest and trick-or-treating. Halloween was always celebrated on Sunday afternoons. It was a real community event and one of maybe two times – the other being the 4th of July – a year when the whole town ventured outside. Homes were decorated – some to extreme, candy was distributed and the community club provided apple cider and glazed donuts.

It really has become a fond childhood memory for our children. In fact, one year when Brandon was only about four, he won “ugliest”. His costume? It was a homemade costume where I dressed him up as Eddie Munster. He was adorable – in an ugly kind of way. Well, one of the things I remember most was how everyone decorated their homes. A consistent theme was homemade signs. So, for this September Blog Hop where we are celebrating all things Halloween, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite Halloween sign tutorials from some fantastic bloggers.

Autumn Sign {Tutorial}

Inspired Autumn Sign Tutorial from Ella Claire as featured on The Birch Cottage

This Autumn Sign {Tutorial} from Ella Claire uses one of my favorite techniques – chalkpaint. I love working with chalkpaint and it’s an especially good application for distressed wood projects. Ella provides a great step-by-step tutorial for her Autumn Sign.

Handpainted Pumpkin Crate

This Handpainted Pumpkin Crate from Jamie at Anderson & Gant can be made using an old vintage find like Jamie did or with some repurposed wood, like repurposed fence pickets.

Rustic DIY Halloween Sign

If you have a cutting machine, this Rustic DIY Halloween Sign is super easy. If you’re like me and you don’t yet have a cutting machine, you’re still in luck as Susan also provides a tutorial for “good old fashioned pencil transfer signs.”
