Autumn Inspiration: 12 Days of Fall, Day 3
Crunching leaves, Grandma's apple pie, and a slight chill on your nose. Those are three giveaways that fall has arrived. What a fun time of year. Not just because of these types of things but because the rest of the year is full of holidays to look forward to. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and of course the biggie, Christmas!
Today I wanted to inspire you with another DIY project. This one was a really enjoyable project for me and I will be using it on my porch for years to come. It makes me smile every time I look at it. I just wish I could use it all year round!
Every front porch is different. (I personally wish I had a farmhouse wrap around porch with a swing to sit on in the evenings but you know, maybe someday?)
Mine is a little narrow and can be kind of awkward to decorate at times. I wanted porch sign that said something cute but not too cliche. (It's Fall Ya'll and Hayrides 25 cents) And I mean no offense to anyone that has that, I just wanted something a little different!
So I set out to make my own and come up with one word that would fit on a long board that my husband bought for me at Lowes. Whatta guy.
This took longer than I care to admit, but I came up with the word Autumn because it isn't used as much as the word Fall so I went with it.
All you need for this easy DIY Autumn Porch Sign is:
A long piece of wood
White Letters (I got mine from Michael's, they were cheapest there)
Espresso Colored Stain (If you want to stain the wood you are gluing the letters to)
Black Spray Paint (If you want to paint your letters)
Flowers and twine to put on top (If you want to apply them as I did on the top. I got mine from JoAnn's)
Just remember to make sure the letters will fit onto the board that you are applying them to!
Here is how she turned out.
This will match beautifully with the wreath that I did a DIY for yesterday. (Day 2) You are now on your way to a beautiful autumn porch and I promise it will put a smile on your face when you pull into your driveway.
My wish is that this has put a little Autumn inspiration into your step. I just hope the weather will drop below the 90's here soon!
