I sanded it by hand once I was done painting it to give it a vintage look.

Ok so I have been seeing sign stand all over blogland and I wanted to take a crack at it! Here is what I came up with:
It was really easy! Here is all that you need:
- 2"x2" cut to desired size
- base: I got mine from the fencing department at Lowes
- Hook: I got mine at Lowes but you could use whatever you want
- finial: I got the finial in the unfinished wood department at the Lobby
- whatever color paint you want
I screwed the base into the two by two and used A LOT of hot glue to attach the finial to the top. After that I just painted it and then added the hook. I made a really cute little halloween sign for it but unfortunately, both sold before I got to take a picture! I will make another one and post a tutorial for it soon! Hope you enjoyed!
I was soooo sad to have to give it to her... I wanted to keep it! Luckily for me, since I made it, I can make another one!!!
I made it out of the free plywood that I got from Lowes. It is 10"x8" for the top piece and the bottom piece is 2". It was really easy and I will definitely be making another one. I am not posting a detailed tutorial because it was very simple and I am so behind in my posts from my computer being sick, that I can't post a tutorial for all of my stuff today! If you have any questions feel free to ask though!
Here is another sign that I made for the same lady:

- 1/4" dowel (I got mine from walmart)
- gorilla glue
- wooden base
- I printed off a candy corn clip art and cut it out for my pattern. I made the pattern three different sizes varying just a little before I printed each out.
- I traced the pattern onto my free plywood that I have been bragging about and cut it out with my jigsaw.
- I painted my candy corn and used my sander to round the edges.
- After that, I drilled a 1/4" hole in the bottom of the corn to match the 1/4" dowel that I bought from walmart.
- I cut the dowel to three different lengths that I wanted which were 6", 9" and 12"
- I found the bases at Lowes in the fencing department and they came with 1/4" hole drilled already.
- I glued the dowel into the base with gorilla glue and painted them white
- When it was all dry, I attached the candy corn to the top with a little more glue and tied raffia around the base
