Painted Fall Sign- Happy Fall Y'all!November 04, 2014
Using the blank sign that my parents had made for me, I used my favorite text transfer method to create my design.
Having spent a good portion of my childhood in the South, I miss hearing everyone say "y'all" and love that it starts coming out around fall where I live now! So naturally, "Happy fall y'all!" was perfect for my fall sign!
First I printed out the text using a couple different fun fonts (Cooper Standard and Chalk Hand Lettering). I attempted to free hand a pumpkin but it didn't work out so well (oopsy) so I searched for an image I liked and used this super cute one from Domestically Speaking (she has tons of fabulous burlap art on her blog, so be sure to check it out!).
Shade the back of your text and image with a pencil. When you're done, flip them back over and trace them with your pencil. This should leave a lead imprint on the wood.
Then, all you have to do is fill in the outlines with paint! I used acrylic paint for this sign and incorporated light orange, burnt orange, beige, and brown. Use whatever colors you like!
I'm just so excited about how great it turned out! I hope all of my future seasonal signs turn out this cute!
We don't have much of a front porch to decorate, but this little sign is perfect for our front walk way!
Just the perfect touch of fall for our front yard!!
