Halloween "haunted" Sign Tutorial

1.I started with a piece of scrap wood. 
2. Stained it with dark walnut wax and a coat of
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.
3.  I printed out "haunted" and  traced the letters onto the wood.
4.  Hand Paint  the letters with black acrylic and then distressed with mouse sander.

I nailed the sign to some old fence boards I got for free. 
I painted them black and nailed to some scrapwood
for a nice halloweenish yard display!  It was soo easy.

I did these the same way.  The "Salem Hat Co. is on scrap wood with a little glitter,
 and the other was done on an old cabinet door. 

Have a great weekend!  Fall weather has officially arrived here so come back to see more
fall projects soon.


  1. Crafting enchanted brooms! That is really fun! I just received my very first Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (it's very difficult to get in Canada - only one supplier in my province!) and can't wait to get started. I always enjoy reading about projects bloggers use with the paint.

  6. These are some super cute signs! I love making things for Halloween, although I avoid using witchy themed ideas since I live in Salem, OR.

  11. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my own blog
    in the near future but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
