Instead of donating a wall sign I wasn’t using anymore, I decided to give it new life for Halloween.
Large wall art can be very expensive and for me it’s hard to justify for holiday decor.
I tried to sell a wall sign that I wasn’t interested in anymore, but no one wanted it either.
I had it in my donation pile when I decided that maybe I could repurpose it another way.

The hunt for the perfect Halloween print
I envisioned something that was sort of a vintage inspired Halloween vibe and instantly fell in love with this print I found on ETSY from The Prints Bakery.
You have to check out this shop because they have TONS of amazing prints to choose from!
After I downloaded the print, I sent off the size I needed to Staples to be printed off in a matte paper.
Mounting the Halloween print
Before I did anything, I decided I wanted to make the actual frame of the sign darker and used this Varathane No Mess Wood Stain with the attached applicator.
Next I cut the print down to size and sprayed the inset of the sign with spray adhesive.
I had a mini heart attack when I realized that the sign itself wasn’t 100% square, but I was able to get the print into the frame.
Once the decou-page dried it sort of wrinkled the print a bit, but really it just added to the vintage look of the sign.
Reusing home decor in a new way is the a great way to refresh your space
No matter if it’s for the holidays or every day, reusing home decor instead of completely getting rid of it is a win in my book.
With a little bit of money and a little bit of work I was able to add something fun and unique for Halloween.
