Easy DIY Wooden Signs for Fall

It's fall!    I am ignoring the fact that it doesn't feel like it outside << side eye as I look out the window at the 100 degree temps outside>> and I'm forcing fall inside.  I am SO ready for cooler temps, curling up with a blanket, and baking lots of yummy treats.

I have already made my first batch of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  YUM!  My family has snarfed them down.  I can't wait to make more.

Even if you aren't the baking type, don't worry, I've got you.  I'm going to show you how to whip up Easy DIY Wooden Signs to decorate your kitchen for fall!

Fall is the best time of the year!  After a long hot summer, I always welcome fall.  It is the time when school starts, the temperature and humidity finally drop, and we get pumpkins and mums!  Well, 2 out of the 3 have occurred and I'm eagerly awaiting the day I can walk outside without immediately breaking into a sweat.  

Anyway - I'm also super pumped about fall crafting.  The first project I did was to make some cute Fall Wood Signs for my kitchen that are an easy DIY.

How to make Wooden Signs for Fall


When I was redoing my craft space, I purged a ton of supplies that I no longer use.  I had tons of random wooden pieces that almost went to the donation pile, but luckily I saved a few, because they were the perfect thing to make these signs.

Supplies needed 




Instructions


-Start by painting wooden plaques with craft paint. Let dry.

-Brush matte mod podge onto top surface of wooden plaque, then place recipe book paper onto it, smoothing with fingers.  Let dry.

-Sand edges of wooden plaque to remove excess paper.  Once that is done, sand the edges of the wooden plaque.


DIY wooden signs from recipe book paper


-Brush a light coat of mod podge over entire sign, including the painted edges, to seal the paper and the painted wood.

-While that is drying, find an image in the Silhouette Store to put on your sign, or make your own.  I used the fonts on my computer to write Harvest Baking Company, Apple and Pumpkin.  You can get the one I made here.    I have never shared a silhouette file before, so let me know if that doesn't work.


DIY wooden signs with cut vinyl


-Cut words out of black vinyl, weed, and transfer to sign with transfer tape or clear contact paper.

-On the large sign, I dry brushed a tiny amount of brown and black craft paint to distress the edges a bit.

I hung my signs in my kitchen underneath my farmhouse shelves, near the cookie jar holding those bits of soft, chocolate pumpkin deliciousness!  Speaking of cookie jars, looks like I need to cut some vinyl for this year's jar!




These signs are the perfect touch to add some Fall Farmhouse Charm to my kitchen.  







Easy DIY Fall Wooden Signs are so simple to make.  They are easily customizable to match any sort of decor you want.
