I love creating my own wood signs with funny Halloween sayings. It adds so much charm to the season to put Halloween phrases with a sense of humor on letter boards or scrawled on chalkboard signs.

Beyond the Happy Halloween Quote

Happy Halloween is a pretty average sign saying, but when I put my mind to creating holiday decor average is the last thing I want on my walls.

As part of my Halloween home decor, I created this really charming DIY Sleepy Hollow Sign. But then I went a step further and used a vintage graphic to create a stencil of a full moon and painted a “Man on the Moon” sign. Both of these make great options if you’re looking for something a little less spooky and more whimsical and charming.

Beyond creatively designing a sign to make, there is a whole world of cute sayings, spooky sayings, and funny Halloween quotes that can step up your game this year.
