Halloween Happenings

  Guess how I spent my day??

  I crafted a horror doll. If you don't know what a horror doll is, you're not the only one. I didn't either until my husband shared a YouTube video of a lady making a horror doll. With Halloween approaching it seemed like a fun project. Plus it gave me a purpose.

  Between waiting for her layers of paint to dry, an idea popped into my head. I admit I am a Pinterest junkie. On Pinterest I have saw so many cute signs made out of old wood. Since I already had paint and brushes out, I decided to make a fall sign. Luckily my husband, who is a pallet hoarder haha, had disassembled several pallets this past weekend. I scoured through his stack of pallet boards, until I found an old, weathered looking board that was split a bit on one end. I figured the split would give it character. Plus the board probably was unusable for my husband's next project.

  With board in hand, I headed back inside. I considered doing a horizontal sign but in the end felt a vertical one had more "style". Luckily I had kept the stencils we purchased for my daughter's wedding signs. I freehanded a pumpkin and stenciled "WELCOME" in autumn colors. 

  It isn't perfect but I'm kind of proud of it, because I did it all on my own. Ankylosing Spondylitis didn't hold me back today! I consider today a win!

P.S. I'll post pictures of the sign and the horror doll when they dry.
