I am still transitioning my house to fall decor. Today I started to decorate in the dining room. I was in need of an item to place on my mirror ledge. I will explain what my mirror ledge is in my next post on decorating the dining room, but today I want to show you the “Welcome” Plaque I made. I was looking through the current fall decorations that I have and nothing was working for this place. I came across an old Halloween plaque that I used in the past and decided I could re-purpose this plaque to fit my decor. Here is the plaque before the transition.
My family loves this plaque, they used to ask why the “Witch” was always in. Remember I lived with 5 boys, so there was usually much reason for the “Witch” to be in. I decided to use the back of the plaque to make a fall welcome plaque and I still would have the original plaque in case I could ever use it again. I painted the back of the plaque with some paint that I had on hand.
I than traced around the outside of each letter.
Next step is to paint the lettering, using black paint.
I will share with you on my next post where I used my re-purposed Welcome plaque.
