Hello, Hello! It’s Taryn from Design, Dining and Diapers, and today I’m going to share a fun fall decor project with all of you. Decorating my home for every season can get a bit pricey (especially when I’m still trying to decorate the rest of my home!) so I’m always looking for ways to add a little festive decor for less.
I recently had a baby, so I’ve been sticking around the house a little more these days and got the itch to put together a fall vignette! After having it almost complete, I felt that it was lacking a statement piece so I went into my garage to see what I had to work with.
After finding a piece of stained wood, I used it to put together this Rustic Fall Sign.
The piece of wood was already stained in a Kona stain by Rusteolum. It was 6 ft long so I cut it evenly in two places so each plank was 2 ft.
I lined up the boards and then screwed three wood shims onto the backs to secure the boards together. I used wood shims only because that is what I had on hand but you could use small pieces of wood.
Using my Silhouette cutting machine, I cut out these vinyl letters to use as stencils. I used Bakersville font. If you don’t own a Silhouette, you can always find pre-made vinyl letters at your craft store or you can trace and cut your own from a vinyl sheet for a specific look.
Using left over white paint, I painted over the entire surface using two coats. After it was dry, I peeled off the vinyl letters and the sign was complete!
I think it was the perfect touch and not too bad for free!
