DIY Trick or Treat Sign – Allergy Awareness
Have you seen teal pumpkins? Do you know what they mean? Well, the Teal Pumpkin Project is a movement to spread allergy awareness.
Putting a teal pumpkin on your doorstep means you have non-food treats available, such as glow sticks or small toys. This simple act promotes inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions.
- Provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters
- Place a teal pumpkin in front of your home to indicate to passersby that you have non-food treats available
- Spread the word! Share the Teal Pumpkin Project with your friends and family
I think this is a great way to make Halloween safer for all kids. So, I dug up an old Pumpkin and painted it with BEHR paint. I gotta tell you, I honestly love the coverage and finish with this spray paint!
Next, I dug out a pumpkin shape sign I had from a few years ago and thought it would make the perfect canvas for a cute sign. I spray-painted it as well.
And of course, I had to bring out my Cricut to make the sign.
What you will need to make the sign:
- Cricut Machine
- Black Iron Vinyl
- White Iron Vinyl
- BEHR Spray Paint
- I created a project in Cricut Design Space to get you started
I created a quick video showing you the process….
@michellespartyplanit Have you heard about the Teal Pumpkin project? A teal pumpkin lets trick or treaters know that your treats are allergy free. I painted an old pumpkin and vinyl to match for a coordinating sign to put on my porch this year and I’m loving how they turned out! (Yes! You can paint vinyl!) #FlexEveryAngle #crafttok #tealpumpkinproject #halloweendecor #behrpaint #howto #cricutmade #cricut #tutorial #allergyfriendly #allergyfree #halloweensafety ♬ Epic Music(863502) – Draganov89
Did you catch the party where I spray-painted the vinyl to match the pumpkin? This is my new favorite way to create custom-colored vinyl for my project. Pro tip: don’t use transfer tape, it may take a bit of the paint off the vinyl.
I really love how the pumpkin and sign turned out. I hope this inspires you to participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project. If you do, please tag me on social @michellespartyplanit. I’d love to see what you create to spread awareness!
