I love digging around for lost treasures! And I surely found a trove of it when Mark and I bought this old farm property. One excavation in our pasture and barn last summer turned up some ancient-looking wood that was partly-buried near the back fence. Most people would've simply tossed it out, but I tend to "see" things in old junk, and this piece absolutely begged to be reincarnated in a funny and rustic sort of way.
We love pumpkins and Jack O'lanterns and all things Halloween, and had wanted to plant a pumpkin patch for many years. I figured, why not make a really cool pumpkin patch sign? After cleaning off the wood I painted it with a variety of acrylic colors, including some bright neon that would give it an extra-special glow, and double-sprayed with a matte sealer. It reads "Pumpkins established 2009" and will make a perfect addition to anyone's autumn home decor, or affixed in a place of honor at their pumpkin patch entrance.
Who knows... perhaps the Great Pumpkin himself will pay you a visit!
