Let’s Create a DIY Welcome to Our Pumpkin Patch Sign
The sign is created on a wooden board about 12 inches long and 5 inches high. It’s an unfinished sign from the craft store, but I don’t remember which one. To get the sign ready, I pained it with black acrylic paint.

To attach the paper to the sign, I used Mod Podge. Just follow the directions on the Mod Podge and remember a little bit of Mod Podge goes along way. How cute is this?
