DIY Hexagon Halloween Sign

DIY Hexagon Halloween Sign

Halloween season is here!  To most, I’m probably super behind on getting my decorations up.  Many people in my ‘hood have had their pumpkins and ghosts on display since the first of September.  Me, I just can’t get behind Halloween decor when it’s 85 degrees out and my flowers still look amazing!  It just seems wrong to hack down beautiful flowers that are at the peak of the season, only to replace them with Mums.  So,  I waited until about October 4th to really hit the Halloween holiday hard. 

DIY Hexagon Halloween Sign

The first project I started with was a sign for my front door.  Normally I would put up this Fall wreath alternative, but this year I decided to go with something more festive.  I was gifted a wooden hexagon sign from Walnut Hollow and wanted to use it in one of my Fall projects.  Now, I could’ve gone the route of using the traditional hexagon shape to create some sort of pumpkin sign, but I decided to turn it on its side for something different.

My design was super simple.  All I did was paint the sides with DecoArt Jack-O’-Lantern Orange since it’s the perfect shade of orange for Halloween!  I used my Cricut to cut out “Happy Halloween” from adhesive vinyl.  Then, I cut out bats from some pretty glitter cardstock.  Instead of gluing all of my bats flat against my sign, I glued down part of two of the bats so I could bend the wings out, creating dimension.  After I added orange baker’s twine (yes, I am still using this from my wedding!) to the back, my sign was ready to hang!
