Vintage Fall

These vintage/prim boards bring fall to any decor! I've used recycled pine boards cut in various sizes and added vintage fall/Halloween scenes or sayings. Easily tucked onto a mantel, window sill or cupboard, they bring an added touch to the fall season. Black and pumpkin paint colors were used on all board, making a combination of boards a perfect blend. Click the picture to see additional choices. Since boards were cut randomly, sizes may vary slightly - the small boards are approximately 5" x 3.5", and the two larger boards are 6 1/5" long x 4.5" high. They are made to be free standing, but if you wish to have a hanger on the back I can add a hook. Each sold separately, so you will need to let me know specifically which board: Small $10/ea. hocus-pocus, October 31, girl sitting on pumpkin, boy carving pumpkin. Large $12/ea. girl holding pumpkin or witch & black cat. Please email me if you wish to purchase. Shipping is included in pricing.
