Easy Wire Wall Signs for Halloween

pink and blackSo this is as spooky as I get for Halloween.  I’m a scaredy cat who would prefer to stay home on Halloween, not answer the door and be safe in my bed.  But I have kids, I’m an adult and I’m not lame.  (Ok, the last one might be debatable).  But I have been wanting to play around with wire for a while.  This seemed like the perfect occasion.  And I’m SO in to white pumpkins this year.  They are totally my jam.  I like how they look all squished and lopsided.  I think that is just perfect.

Black-wireWire signs are super easy to make.  You just need wire.  And scissors.  Duh.  My wire was 12 gauge.  Why does that make me think of rap songs and shot guns?

black-and-pink-halloween-decorI kind of love it.  Its graphic, its kind of cute, its easy and it took me only a minute.  Can’t stop, won’t stop with bright pink, FYI.
