ok, I made a sign warning about prop theft for my graveyard, for this year...
I know it may not do much good, but it was fun to make, in any case! LOL
Firstly, I ordered wooden letters from a place called Woodland manufacturing, recommended by Dminor on another thread, Woodland is here
Then I picked up some decorative wooden pieces from Lowes, and used some Pink Foam I already had...
Oops, I realized, I had cut the foam too small for the wooden decorations to fit!
I need to add a top and bottom piece of foam to extend the height...
Here it is, layed out with extra top and bottom foam strips
I used foam construction adhesive from Home Depot, and glued the strips top and bottom, and secured with painters tape
I "primed" it with Krylon H2O white latex spray paint
Here it is, painted with Valspar Stone granite spray, from Michaels

A little airbrush painting, and "Voila!"...My first attempt at spraypainting weathering, not what I expected, but it's okay, still..this prop was really an afterthought, so I was still pretty happy with the way it came out.
