It’s that time of year again. Time to craft in preparation for fall craft shows.
These witchy signs have been a big hit the last couple of years so I headed out to the woodpile to find wood that had potential for making more. I’ve made these with pallet boards, wood chair seats and cupboard doors, but this time I used scraps from my brother’s new fence.
He had quite a few pieces that were already cut to the same size, so I didn’t have much cutting to get them prepared.
I try to buy gallons of paint colors that I use a lot of. I’ve used this same orange paint for about three years. Sigh…it’s almost gone so I’ll need to be buying more soon.
The stencil was made using my Cricut. It’s the same one I have used since the first sign I made. It’s just card stock, but it has held up well.
I tried something new this year. I had some black raffia in my stash so I used it for the witch brooms. In the past I have used the natural raffia. I really like them in black.
The last touch was attaching green raffia to the rusty wire handle.
