Out of Treats Sign for Trick or Treaters

September 24, 2013

I’ve heard that my new neighborhood is a hot spot for trick or treaters. As in, I can expect hundreds of trick or treaters to visit my home October 31.Yikes!

I’ve already started buying candy (in bulk), but I’m still worried that I won’t have enough. Enter this adorable sign I saw on Pinterest. Cute, right? And totally DIY-able. (For those of you who don’t want to click over to Pinterest, it’s a sign you hang on your door announcing that you are out of treats.)

Luckily, I let Hobby Lobby do most of the hard work for me.

I recently found this adorable sign at Hobby Lobby for $2.99 — with 40 percent off! I don’t think I could have made it myself that cheaply. However, this sign only advertises that we have treats available. The back side was lacking when I purchased it, but with a few DIY touches, I knew it could be something really fun.

Tons of potential, right? I thought so, too.

Using my Silhouette I cut some vinyl words and polka dots to add to the back of the sign. Some cute bows hid the staples and finished off my little sign nicely. When we run out of candy at the end of the night, all we have to do is flip the sign over.

Here’s hoping we won’t have to worry about our doorbell being rang a million times after dark. How have you been preparing for Halloween?
