Halloween is near and I’m excited that I get to help in my daughters preschool class for their Halloween party this year! I had this idea just pop in my head a few weeks ago and I immediately got so excited and had to try to make them right away! So, when it worked out, just like I pictured in my head, I was super stoked! Today I am sharing how to make these super simple DIY Halloween Posterboard Placemats!!
Hey friends! A few weeks ago I kicked off Eighteen25’s 2015 Spooktacular September with these fun Printable Halloween Can Wrappers! Lisa designed these as her farewell post to the blogging world and they turned out so great! These are such a fun and simple decor that could be perfect for your mantel, a table centerpiece or even just for a party! All you need is empty metal soup cans, the printables, and something fun and spooky to place inside.
Lisa used broken twigs that she spray painted with gold and silver paint. She also took black spray paint and sprayed the undersides of baby’s breath to give it a more spooky look.
They are perfect for a mantle or as a centerpiece for a party and you can easily mix and match them!

Happy Friday everybody!! Today I’m going to share with you how to make this super easy Front Porch Sign! It has added so much to our Fall Front Porch and we’ve gotten so many comments from neighbors and friends about it! I’ve even had several people ask if I sell them!
The other great thing is that ANYBODY can make this! Yes ladies!! I’m talking to you! All you need is a basic chop saw to cut your boards to length. If you don’t have a chop saw, then just have the nice employees at Home Depot or Lowes make your cuts for you!
What you need:
40″ Tall 4″x4″ Post
8″x8″ square (for under the post base to add more support)
5 boards cut at Random lengths and heights
We used all 1″ thick boards at the following dimensions:
Paint in desired colors (I used brown, orange and white)
Vinyl Stencils of words (Cricut files shared below)
Start by staining everything and allowing it to dry for 24 hours!
Then assemble by attaching the Post Top and Post Base. I went ahead and used wood glue and also used the nail gun to attached them. The base I decided to screw in.
(*Note – It’s not pictured in this tutorial, but I would suggest getting a bigger 8″x8″ wood base base to put on the very bottom to help give it better support. We live in a windier area and I have had to add that to prevent the sign being blown over.)
I then took my 5 boards and painted them white. I then took my sand block and roughed the boards up just a bit! After they had tried I screwed them into the post. Being that they were only an inch thick, I didn’t need pre drill the holes. Because the sign is meant to look a little older, I didn’t bother filling and painting over the screws. I liked them visable!
Afterwards I brought it in my house (it was a windy day) and got all the vinyl prepped! I measured the boards and cut the words to the appropriate size. Instead of using the vinyl, I pull the outside of the vinyl off and used it as a stencil.
When applying the paint I applied it in different thicknesses, to give each phrase a different look. After the paint at partially tried, I took the end of a screwdriver and scratched up some of the paint and areas to make the sign look worn.
I then sprayed the clear sealant over all the signs! Then you’re done! It was such an easy project and I love how it turned out!

Good luck and have fun! If you make the sign (or one inspired from this one), we’d love for you to share it with us on our Facebook page!
I am a novice when it comes to sewing and I have had these cute fabrics for a long time and been too afraid to do anything with them! I finally got the guts up to sew a little quilt together. I really loved rag quilts but HELLO! That is a lot of work and I am both lazy and not that good of a sewer. I simplified it up and made it super easy! Here is what you do. First cut your fabrics into squares and lay them out how you want them to go. Next you need to sew them into rows. When doing a rag blanket you want to sew the wrong sides together to leave fabric to cut and fray.
Just sew straight along the the edge. I left about half an inch of fabric allowance.
Finish all your rows and keep them laid out in position.
You need to then iron all of your seams open so the rows will sew together nice.
Now you sew the rows together. You do it the exact same way, sew the wrongs sides together leaving the same amount of allowance.
When you have them all sewn together lay your layers together. I laid my black fleece on the floor, then my batting, and next my fabric top.
I cut the batting right at the quilt top and then I left 3-4 inches of fleece because I was going to use that as my binding.
Then I pinned like crazy! I pinned at ever corner of my squares and all along the outside of the border. Make sure the layers are not bunching up but that you are keeping them even.
I did not know how the fleece would go through my machine with batting and top layer added to it. Someone told me that I should tie it together with yarn but I didn’t want that look. So I improvised I sewed at each of the intersections where you would put the yarn ties if you were tying it. I just lined it up in my machine and then sewed forward and back a few times about 1/4-1/2 inch long. Just make sure your back is laying right before you do this so there is no pucker.
The back of the fleece will look like this when you are done.
I honestly don’t know how to sew a binding on and I also didn’t have any extra fabric. The beauty of fleece is that it doesn’t fray so you don’t have to finish it off. So I took my fleece and cut it off leaving an inch on each side.
Then I folded the fleece over and pinned it. Once I had it all pinned down I sewed the fleece edge down.
Make sure you sew it close the the fleece edge because otherwise it might not catch the fabric. Like this:
I had to unstitch it and resew it back together. Keep your sewing in tight on the fleece edge. As far as the corners go, I sewed along one edge. Folded the other edge over and sewed it over too.
After you have the edging done you need to clip the edges about every 1/4 inch so when it gets washed it will fray all up. Just be sure not to clip so far down that you cut into your stitches.
My boys love the blanket and it was such a great start to help boost my sewing confidence that I could make it all by myself.
