Keep Calm Halloween Plaques


I have been seeing so many cute ideas using the

KEEP CALM theme.....

I decided to make a simple little project to add to the Sweetwater Halloween Decor!




I started by browsing for some clever ideas......and I found lots of freebies to print!
Thanks to these clever folks for sharing their talents!
You can click the links to get the free printable!!!

I picked three of my favorites.....to use for a fun and simple project!
A few months ago, I bought a six foot section of plain 4 inch trim stock from Home Depot.
I cut it into 6 inch sections....
sanded the rough edges....
and painted them white....
and they made a really fun Mother's Day gift for Mom last year!!!


I still had six of them left....perfect for my little Halloween Plaques once they had a coat of black paint!!!!

Here is the finished project!!!


These three are staying at Sweetwater....
I made another set which made the perfect little birthday gift for a friend!
Promise not to tell her that I didn't spend any money on her gift!!!
But.....knowing this friend.....she would really appreciate THAT!!!

Have a great day!
