Hi friends! Halloween is pretty big around our neighborhood, and people tend to go all out with the decorations. Even though we decorate our front yard, it’s nothing compared to what some houses look like. Personally, I like to keep it fun and not creepy, so last year, I made this easy DIY Halloween Yard Sign. We put it near the candy table, and people thought it was super cute!
Each year, my kids enjoy going to the local Halloween party store to look at all of the decorations. In fact, we usually up going there several times before the big night. The kids have a weird fascination with the displays, and I think this is the first year that my little guy didn’t jump when he was looking at them!
We usually start out by adding a few outdoor items around the beginning of October, but by the end of the month, the Hubs has the house pretty well decked out with lights, spider webs, and any other little things he can find.
I ended up making this Halloween trick-or-treat sign for our front yard literally at the last minute, and I didn’t get a chance to post it on the blog last year. So this year, I’m showing it off! It only took me a few minutes to make the sign, and it’s super easy to put together.
Supplies to Make a Halloween Yard Sign
- Yard Stakes
- Paint pen or marker
- Wood screws or glue
We already had the long wood stakes, so the Hubs just cut a few so that they would be different lengths. If you don’t have a saw, you could buy a long stake and some short ones for the smaller pieces.
I painted the smaller pieces orange and yellow, and then I used a craft paint pen to write tricks, treats, smelly feet and good eats — kind of a play on that old saying. My kids thought it was funny.
Hubby used screws to fasten the short pieces to the longer wooden stake, and then we arranged the sign in the front yard so that the treats and good eats faced the candy table.
Tricks and smelly feet faced the other way, and I’m so happy that my neighbors didn’t complain!
I still don’t know what I’ll do this year, but I have a few more weeks to think about it, right?
So, do you make your own Halloween lawn decorations, or do you buy them? Do you decorate your yard? Inquiring minds want to know.
Thanks for visiting!
