The national Teal Pumpkin Project was started by FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education) in 2014 to promote the inclusion of kids with food allergies in trick-or-treating. By offering non-food treats and displaying a teal pumpkin or a printable sign, households are making a safer, happier Halloween for kids around the country. As the Aunt and Uncle to a nephew with severe food allergies this is something Don and I love and participate in, but OF COURSE I can’t be satisfied with a standard sign – I had to make one. And you can too! {FTC disclaimer: this post contains affiliate links so I may make a few pennies if you buy something!}

pen or pencil
craft knife
paper straw

Xyron Creative Station Lite with 5″ Permanent Adhesive refill
black cardstock
hot glue gun
assorted ribbon

Determine where you want to place your straw, then trace around it with a pen or pencil.

Use a craft knife to cut out a hole INSIDE the circle, so the straw will fit tightly. Don’t worry if it doesn’t look great…you’re going to cover it with ribbon later.

Print out the printable (there are two sayings per sheet just in case), then trim and run one through the Creative Station Lite.

Press one end of the straw together until it is flat.

Trim the black cardstock a little bit bigger than the printable, lay the straw on top, and adhere the printable. The adhesive will hold the straw in place.

Insert the straw/sign in to the hole on the pumpkin and use the hot glue gun to adhere it in to place.

Tie assorted pieces of ribbon to the base.

Now you’re ready for every little trick-or-treater that comes by this Halloween!
