HARVEST wood sign

I love decorating for fall...I love the colors, flowers, pumpkins and even the smells that fall brings. My kids enjoy the caramel apples and fall festivities. 

I was feeling crafty last week and decided to see what kind of fall decor I could whip up with what I had here at home. I rummaged around in our shed and came back with some wood that would be perfect for some small decorative signs.

This is what I started with

I lightly dry brushed the wood with some gray paint

Once the paint dried I brushed on some white

I wrote out my wording in chalk before painting in case I made a mistake

I used a small paintbrush to hand paint on the words

Since I had two pieces of wood I decided to go ahead and make a winter sign as well

I'm still working on my fall decorating and I can't wait to share everything with you when I'm finished!

linking up this week to...


  1. These signs are so cool! I love the technique you used!

  2. Wow so cute and so pretty :) Great idea! Those signs at stores can cost so much. Glad you shared this over on the Serenity now Linkup thanks

  3. I love the signs you made with leftover materials! Those are always the best projects because they're free! I hope you don't need the Let It Snow sign any time soon. I'm not ready for another Ohio winter! : (
