DIY Wood Sign for Fall

I know y’all know how excited I have been to get the Fall decorating underway! Now that it’s September, it gives Jenn and I the excuse that it’s now okay to tackle even more Fall projects. This DIY wood sign has been on my to-do list for quite awhile. Do you remember when I made the felt flowers? You can see the tutorial here. The first way that I am using them is for this DIY wood sign for Fall. Let me show you how I put the sign together. (This post contains affiliate links.)

Here’s how I did it:

  1. Choose a phrase and font. Font size is 1200. Print.
  2. Rustic weathered sign from the craft store. Here is a similar one from Target.
  3. White tracing Paper. (sheets are reusable it you don’t use a lot of the paper) You can find the tracing paper here.
  4. Tape down the tracing paper. Tape down the printed phrase on top of the tracing paper.
  5. Using a pencil, trace the outline of each letter.
  6. All of the letters are traced.
  7. Craft paint and brush.
  8. Painting inside the traced lines.
  9. Painting complete.

I gathered the felt flowers that I made a few weeks ago. Next, I started laying them out on my sign for placement.

When I first made the felt flowers I added tape on the back to hold them together. Once I use them for a project is when I bring out the glue gun.

Dots of hot glue are added in between a couple of felt layers, and on the back of the flower. Once I’m happy with the look, all of the flowers and leaves are hot-glued onto the sign. Fortunately, I didn’t burn myself this time :) Have you ever been burned by hot glue? Way.no.fun! Always take caution when wielding your glue gun.

I’ve got to say, I love how my DIY Fall sign turned out! My fall color palette will be gray, cream, rust and a bit of blue. You might even see a little bit of denim.  Rustic wood is a biggie for me too.

Here’s how my friends and neighbors are greeted at the front door. The UPS delivery man has already given his thumbs-up approval.

This is a departure for me as I usually have a traditional Fall wreath hanging on my front door. I must say that this new look packs quite a statement.

Until tomorrow…
