With COVID-19, Halloween might look different this year. Is your town open to trick-or-treating this year? Maybe you're unsure if you should hand out candy or not. Maybe you're trying to cut back on sugary treats! No matter how your holiday looks, we have fun for all!
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, glue, tape, and a printer. Let's get started!
piece of 12" x 12" card stock in any color you want
scissors or paper cutter
ductape or packing tape
Start by printing out the QR code sign.
Next cut it down to size to fit the 12x12 card stock with about 1.5 inches of border. If you want to do a rectangular piece of cardstock, you can skip the cutting part all together.
Arrange the printout on the cardstock and glue it down.
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.
I used ductape because that's what we had. Feel free to use any strong tape you have around.
Now you are ready to put up the sign! I'm leaning ours against our pumpkins. If it's a windy night I'll remove the dowels and tape the sign to the front door.
Happy Trick-or Treating, Sparklers!
