Easy DIY Wooden Halloween Door Sign! Perfect as a decoration for the season, but it can also be used to tell Trick-Or-Treaters there is no candy left! | saynotsweetanne.comOne of my favorite things about living in a city (as opposed to the rural country where I grew up) is being able to pass out Halloween candy. It has become one of my favorite parts of Halloween, and I love to see all the little tots dressed up in their cute costumes. With great candy-giving power, however, comes great no-more-candy responsibility. I needed a quick way to signal to the masses that we had misjudged our candy needs (or eaten too much ourselves) and the candy bowl was empty.

I do not like telling children there’s no candy left. So, I made an adorable sign to do it for me!

Loew-Cornell was gracious enough to supply what I needed for this project, which meant that even in the hectic pre-holiday season, I was able to complete it in no time! I love the way it turned out, and it provides a great pop of color to our front door all month long. On the big (boo) day, it signals when the candy is all gone, and then I can pack it away to use in future years. The wood base is really nice compared to a lot of the foam/paper projects I typically make. I think it will stay looking good for several years!

What You Need:

How To Make It:

  1. Begin by sanding the edges and surface of your base. This will make the finished item look much nicer, and it only takes a second. I found the Loew-Cornell bases were pretty well sanded and I just did a little touch up.

  2. Choose your base coat color and apply 1 even coat. Let dry and repeat until both sides of your base look even. Let dry.

  3. Using vinyl, stencils or free hand, write “BOO” on the front of the sign. I opted to add this adorable ghost too.
  4. Once that is dry, write “BOO-HOO” and “No more Candy” on the back side.

  5. If you want, add a bow or some other finishing touches to your sign.Easy DIY Wooden Halloween Door Sign! Perfect as a decoration for the season, but it can also be used to tell Trick-Or-Treaters there is no candy left! | saynotsweetanne.com
  6. Finally use the twine or string to hang the finished sign. I like mine in the center of my spooky halloween wreath. It looks great! You could also hang it on a doorknob or prop it up against some pumpkins on your front step.
