I made this 5 1/2 foot tall porch sign a couple weeks ago. I had gotten the idea from Corner House Blog.
I just changed a few things, like the pennant banner and then I used chalkboard vinyl because that is what I had. I used old fence pickets for the wood, because again, that is what I had handy. It was a super fun craft and I love how large it is. All the words are stenciled on with paint, as is the banner and candy corns. I wanted it to be able to put up with all the heat/rain/cold, and I thought that would last the best. It has made the kids super excited to count down the days and change the numbers outside too. They are so excited for Halloween this year! I must say, I am too. :-)
