Spook-tac-u-lar Day 20: Trick or Treat Sign

Welcome back to day 20 of the Spook-tac-u-lar Halloween Crafts.  I can not believe it is October 20th already.  Our Halloween party is this Saturday and it seems like it got here so fast!  Be sure to stop by and see what Rhonda has to share with you at http://www.scraphappenswithrhonda.blogspot.com/ when you are finished visiting me here.

For today's project, I have a cute little sign decoration.  This was really simple to make and cost very little also, since I had most of the items on hand.

To make this sign, I started out with a wood sign that I had purchased on clearance at Ross a little while ago for $1.  (whenever I see these sayings on wood marked down, I purchase them to use for my projects later).  I used Krylon spray paint to cover the block.
Once it was painted Orange, I cut white circles in two sizes (.6 inches and .9 inches) out of vinyl and placed them on the block.  (For the ones that are folding over the top, I ended up cutting the circle in half because I was worried about those coming up in time).
Now, I used black vinyl to cut the words Trick or Treat.   These were cut at a total size of 10.88 wide x 1.23 high using SCAL and the Cheri Font.  I placed them over the block and white circles.
Finally, to finish the block off, I put a coat of Mod Podge over the top to seal everything in.
I am entering this into the following challenge:

I love that Trick or Treat sign! I never thought to watch wood stuff to make something cute of later on. I have to keep an eye on that stuff at the craft store. The polka dots are just adorable on the sign.
