The Easiest DIY Fall Sign Ever

Anyone in the mood for an easy DIY fall sign? I sure hope so, because today I’m showing you how I made the easiest sign in the whole world. Really, if there was a competition for easy signs this one would be hard to beat. I think the whole project took maybe 45 minutes, which included time for coffee, obviously. Y’all know I can’t do a project without coffee. In fact, it’s clearly states in the the DIY handbook that coffee is required for all projects, big or small, so really I’m just following the rules. Here it is!

Supplies Needed:

Wood Pallet Fall Sign

Have you ever seen wooden pallets at craft stores? I just discovered them last week when I was buying supplies for this project. So many fun possibilities with this gem! I found mine at Michael’s and I was so happy because this baby saves a ton of time for this project.

DIY Fall Sign

The first thing I did was stain the pallet. I used Minwax Wood Stain in Gunstock, but you can use any color you like. I used a foam brush to apply 1 heavy coat.

I let it soak in for about 5 minutes then went over the entire thing with a sanding block–focusing mostly on the edges. I wanted it to have a nice rustic look.

Slap on some handy dandy wood glue and apply the letters directly to the pallet–leaving space for the wheat bundle which is next. And FYI, the letters I bought were white–I also found them at Michael’s—so I didn’t have to do any painting, which was another big time saver. After applying all the letters, I let it dry outside for about 20 minutes. (Dry time will vary based on temperature)

While the letters were drying I made the little wheat bundle for the A in fall. This was super easy. All I did was take a bundle of wheat stems, you can find them at any craft store, and tied it up at the top with a piece of twine. I cut them down to the length I wanted and then used the ends to create a little bundle on the back. Used a hot glue gun to glue it together and voila. It ain’t pretty from this side, but it worked.

I finished it off by wrapping a bit of burlap around the twine and gluing it into place.

Done! I put a tiny nail in place to hold the wheat bundle up where I made the plank in the back. Worked like a charm.

There ya have it, the easiest sign ever. I honestly hesitated to even post this, just because it was so simple and quick to put together. But it was a fun project and I hope it inspired you to create something similar. I’m planning to keep fall decor pretty simple this year, so this will fit in perfectly. Be sure to let me know what you think and if you have any questions. And thanks so much for stopping by, I always appreciate it! xoxo

    Sarah – I love the FALL sign, but what really caught my eye was the brick fireplace. My white brick is somewhat yellowed. Is it possible to use paint of some type for the multi colored appearance?

      Hi Ann! It’s actually stone and not brick. But the good news is you can paint brick and I’m sure you could totally do it to get a multi colored appearance–but might take a while if you’re doing a different color on every brick. I’m actually painting our brick fireplace right now, so stay tuned for that tutorial!

  • My sweet boy is 8 years old today & I don’t know how it’s even possible. 😭❤️ Eight feels like a big deal & I can’t help but get a little sad to think about how life goes so quickly. Time really is a thief & I wish we could keep him little forever. But we always talk about how he’s going to live close to me when he grows up. And if not, I’ll just follow him where ever he goes. That seems perfectly reasonable, right?! RIGHT. 😉
