Hi all! Today I am going to show you how to turn two thrifted items into Halloween décor. I picked up this cute metal Jack-o-lantern cut-out awhile back for $1.19 and have been on the lookout for something to pair it with for Halloween décor. When I ran across this wood cutting board for only a dollar and the size is perfect for what I have planned.

Thrifted Items into Halloween Décor
I started off by giving the wood cutting board a good sanding to remove any rough spots and the painting.
Then two coats of white chalk paint.
Next, I distressed the cutting board with my niffy little craft sander.
To attach the metal cut-out, I drilled two small holes through the metal cut-out and the cutting board.
Since the tacks were black, I dabbed a little rust red paint on the heads and sprinkled some cinnamon over the paint. Hoping the tacks will blend in a little better this way.
To finish off these thrifted items into Halloween décor I added a variety of ribbons.
And hot glued some faux fall leaves to the handle.
Now a piece of leather cord and these thrifted items into Halloween décor project is Done!
