Barnwood Sign for {Fall}

{All Things Fall}

Good morning! It’s day two of {All Things Fall} – you know that CRAZY idea I had to post some Fall inspiration for y’all for 14 days straight! Eeeek! With a trip away for 3 days and hosting a Thanksgiving dinner to come back to, I’m still not sure what I was thinking. But, my house is looking cozier already and it’s definitely driving me to keep up! I’m still swooning over this scrappy Burlap & Lace Garland that I shared yesterday!

Today, I’m SO excited to be sharing this Barnwood FALL Sign that we made for our front porch.

This baby was such a cinch to put together! And believe it or not, it isn’t actually made from barnwood at all, just a few boards that we rescued from a garbage pile from the house going up across the street! Hubs shortened them all up, cutting them to about 2.5ish feet long. Wanting things to look rustic and scrappy, we weren’t super precise matching the ends and we were sure to leave the really rustic broken looking ones as is! We simply arranged them on the garage floor in the order that we liked best and screwed in a couple of boards running the opposite way down the back, making sure to hit each board across the front through both of the boards running along the back.

Once it was all put together, I added the word FALL to the top corner with some inexpensive letters (like $.99 each) that I found at Michaels. I decided to hot glue these down, that way if I wanted to remove them down the road, they’d be pretty easy to just rip off.

Finally, I made a little burlap banner for the front, just hot gluing some burlap triangles onto a string of jute. With a few well placed nails, I strung this over the front of the board, tying a little ribbon at the top.

  1. How FUN! A group of girlfriends and I were just planning a crafting day to do something with barn wood. This may be a perfect seasonal fit 🙂

  2. I love this sign for fall! It looks great, and I wish I had space for one on my front porch. It could also work well on a table inside, so maybe I’ll give that a try. Great job!

    1. Thank you Christie!!! It would look fab on a table too! We actually made this one for our front entry, but having not measured first, it was too big to live inside 😉

  3. I love this so much! It is a subtle way to decorate for fall. I have a ton of wood palettes, I may be making this up for my porch soon! I will be checking out the rest of the fall decor for these 14 days! Better you then me, I have lots of projects. But 14 days straight is not something I can do. Good for you!

    1. Thank you Emily! I’m pretty sure I was nuts when I thought of this! But, it has been a ton of fun seeing my house transform before my eyes! I hope you enjoy the journey too!!! Let me know how your pallet sign turns out too!!!

  4. I love the colors in the wood…..It looks so nice on your porch with the pumpkin. And the banner is the perfect little touch!

    Good luck with the fourteen days of fall posts. I can’t wait to see all the projects you have. I came up with the crazy idea of 25 days of Christmas last year….I won’t make that mistake again 🙂

  5. Cute! I love the colors! I’ve got to get my hands on some pallets!
