Looking for an easy project to personalize your space? Here’s one of my favorite painted sign ideas. All you need is a piece of wood and a paint brush.
I never promised you a rose garden.
But I did promise you a sign tutorial. Did you think I forgot?
I’m all about a painted sign. It’s one of the easiest and the simplest ways to create wall art in minutes. If you have a blank wall and a little imagination and a paintbrush, this is the project for you.
Here’s one of my very favorite painted sign ideas.
What is it about fall that turns me into a sign painter?
I’ve been painting fall signs since the first crimson and orange leaf dropped off the tree.
Maybe it’s because they go so well with pumpkins.
Maybe it’s because signs make me think of hot chocolate and hot chocolate makes me think of fall.
Whatever the reason, if fall makes you think of wood and pumpkins and falling leaves and hot chocolate and signs…..
….here’s one of the easiest painted sign ideas you can make.
DIY Happy Fall Wood Sign
- carbon tracing paper
- wood board
- paint brush
- word print out
Step 1: Print out words
Choose the saying you want to paint.
I chose happy fall. I printed it out in my favorite font and made sure it was large enough to fill up the board.
This saying was printed at 150.
Step 2: Trace words onto board
Place a piece of carbon tracing paper underneath the words.
Using a pencil, trace the letters onto the board.
You can see the faint outline of the words on the board in the picture.
Step 3: Paint
Using a craft paint brush and craft paint, simply fill in the letters you traced.
You can trace lightly for a more rustic look like this.
Or, you can add another layer of paint for more defined lettering.
You can also add a coat of acrylic sealer to seal in the letters on the board.
Your sign is ready to display.
Add a few pumpkins and leaves from the yard to create a fun fall vignette.
Happy fall….I’m off to paint again!
