I was inspired by the So Many Fairies story, "Halloween Story: Part One," in which two friends Henry and Brie discover a "story house" where they are offered a story or a treat for Halloween. I've created a quick and easy tutorial for a door or yard sign that you can put up on Halloween and give away a free story instead of candy — or along with candy, if you choose!
All you need is paper, scissors, glue, tape, and a printer. Let's get started!
1 or 2 pieces of 12" x 12" cardstock in any color you want
scissors or a paper cutter
duct tape or packing tape
Start by printing out the QR code sign.
Next, glue the sign to the first and then the second layer of cardstock paper.
If you choose to make the sign so it can lean, or stand up, or be stuck into the ground, you'll want to attach the dowels to the back.
You can use duct tape or any sturdy tape you have on hand.
Now you are ready to put up the sign! I'm leaning ours against our potted plants. If it's a windy night I'll remove the dowels and tape the sign to the front door.
Happy Trick-or Treating, Sparklers!
If you'd like to pair the QR code with a pencil or a bag of candy, we have printouts available that you can color or use as is.
