Halloween should be all about good times and laughs but for families with children who have serious food allergies, it can be a night of worry and disappointment. The Teal Pumpkin Project was created a few years ago to persuade more people to have non-food treats available for children with food allergies who are trick-or-treating. Here’s a fun way to make a Teal Pumpkin Project wood sign that you can use year after year!
- Darice Wood Pallet Pumpkin
- Darice Wood Sign Rectangle
- Teal and White Paint
- Gold Paint Pen
- Darice Jute Twine
- Darice Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Step 4. Once paint has dried completely, write “Allergy-Safe” on the front of the jagged edge sign with the gold paint pen. If your wood sign is larger than the one I used for this tutorial you could be more descriptive with your wording. I tried to fit “Non-Food Treats Available Here!” but my sign was a little too small! Attach jute string to the back of both signs with a generous dollop of glue and allow to dry completely.
Once the glue and the paint is completely dry, just hang your new Teal Pumpkin Project wood sign near your front door so that everyone can see that you believe all children deserve a Halloween with more treats than tricks this year!
