DIY Fall Sign

Thanks for sharing!

Can you see it? Can you smell it? Yep! Fall is here and now is the time to make this easy DIY Fall Sign!

This post started out to be something entirely different. That’s because I was in the process of making a DIY Fall Burlap Wreath when I purchased letters that spell out the word FALL. I thought that I would possibly use the letters in creating my burlap wreath, but decided against it in the end. So, off I went… using the creative side of my brain and thus this DIY Fall Sign was born!

I purchased two packs of art canvas, (there were two canvases in each package), and some craft paints. Originally, I was planning on covering each canvas with colorful fall fabric but decided to just paint them instead.

I selected craft paints in the following colors: King’s Gold Yellow, English Ivy Green, Jack-o-lantern Orange, Jet Black and Melted Chocolate Brown.


The FALL letters were painted with two coats of English Ivy Acrylic craft paint and allowed to dry in-between coats.

In the end, I didn’t use all of the flowers however they will not go to waste because I will be using them for future craft projects.

The final process was to hot glue the letters and embellishments onto the canvas.

I really had fun making this DIY Fall Sign and I love that I have the option to display them on the wall or rest them on a tabletop.

What do you think the price tag would be if purchased in a store?

Have fun creating your very own, personalized fall wall decor.
