    “Collecting Sweets” Porch Sign

    I have a super last minute Halloween project for you. 
     Since Travis and I both like to take the girls trick or treating, no one will be home for a little while to hand out candy. I didn’t want to just NOT pass anything out so I decided to the the whole, “let’s just leave it on the porch” thing. 
    I plan on passing out candy along with non-candy treats this year so I thought I would make up a little sign to display on our porch as well with the bowls until we return to finish passing out candy. 
     This was super easy. 
    I just free handed the sign but you could always creating it with cut out letters or vinyl if you don’t like your penmanship.
    -Yard Stick
    -Large sturdy board (this was a thin piece of cardboard I had on hand)
    -Sharpies or regular markers
    -Small piece of paper

    On a small piece of paper I wrote up my saying in the layout that I wanted it.
    This was so I could see if I wanted to make any changes on a small scale and see how many rows I would need to create on my large board.
     I measured out even rows and marked the center of my board then I wrote out the saying in pencil.
    Using a Sharpie, I rewrote everything making slight adjustments here or there. 
    I used some color sharpies to add some candy and other embellishments to the sign.
    Have fun with it. 
    Add a spider web, pumpkin, witch, any other item you’d like! 
    Add some color to your letters as well. 
    And that’s it! 
    I placed it out on our porch with the candy bowls in front and surrounded it with the flowers and pumpkins we had on the porch already. 
    I hope all the little ghosts, goblins, princesses, and witches enjoy the treats!

    Happy Halloween!
