Learn how to make a stand for your Halloween table sign.

Option 1 - Cut a piece of sturdy cardboard measuring 3/4" wide x 3" long.   Make a fold line approximately 1 1/4" from one end and glue the top 1 1/4" to the back of your completed slate with tacky glue.  Let dry completely before standing up your Halloween sign.

Option 2 - Cut 3" off one end of a wooden craft paddle or a wide craft stick and discard the extra.  About 1" from one end, score a line half way through the stick allowing you to bend the stick on this line.  Glue the top 1"  of the stick to the back of the sign as pictured with tacky glue and let dry completely before standing up your sign.
