DIY design | trick-or-treat

This year, I'm trick-or-treating with our little guy for the first time. When my parents used to do the same with us, my Mom would leave a huge bowl of candy on the front porch with a note asking neighborhood kids to take some and leave some for everyone else. It usually worked. If you have to do the same thing, then start by downloading this free Halloween printable and enjoy your night of Trick-or-Treating!

Here's what you'll need to create a sign like mine:

a piece of 8.5 x 11 inch card stock, a printout of the trick-or-treat sign, some ribbon, a hole punch, two-sided tape (or some other adhesive), and a paper trimmer or scissors.

Start by trimming 1/2 inch off of the left, right and bottom sides of the sign. Then cut 1.5 inches off of the top of the sign.

Next, apply your adhesive to the back of the sign, and attach it to the card stock so that you have a half-inch border around three sides and a larger border at the top.

Punch two holes in the card stock at the top of the sign, and weave your ribbon or string through them. Tie a bow or knot to create a hanging loop.

Hang the sign on your doorknob near a bowl of candy and enjoy your night of trick-or-treating! Let me know if it worked!
