A Lesson in Halloween Flying
About two years ago I wanted a sign for Halloween that caught my eye in a catalog. It was too expensive so I decided to make my own. I thought I would share . . .
So basically, the sign reads "Flying Lessons by appt. only". I started with a scrap of wood and sanded and cleaned it. I painted (spray can) it black. When it was completely dry I taped off the edges and spray painted orange. Removing the tape created a "frame". Using black paint that I had on hand I tried to do my best lettering. I sprayed sealer when done. The sign seems to be holding up pretty well after being in sun and rain for two seasons of Halloween.
I'm seeing a few blisters up close.
Next I needed a broom to hang from the sign. This broom was sitting outdoors useless so I grabbed it. I had to cut it down to fit the proportions of the sign and then I re-tied with jute.
I added eye hooks and chain and some "s" hooks.
