DIY Inexpensive Fall Wood Sign

This DIY inexpensive fall wood sign is picture. It's an image of a wood sign with a light wood frame, white background, wood pumpkin, and the words grateful written in black cursive across the pumpkin. A small twine bow is on the stem of the pumpkin. The words, DIY Inexpensive Fall Wood Sign are on the top of the sign.

If you’re looking for a fun fall DIY decor project, then check out how easy this DIY inexpensive fall wood sign is. It took me less than ten minutes to create this adorable fall wood sign. 

It uses a pumpkin from the Target Dollar Spot (aka Bullseye corner? …whatever they’re calling it nowadays) and a premade sign I got on clearance from Joanns. 

Where Can I Purchase a Premade Sign?

One tip for my DIY’er friends. At the end of each season in recent years, Joanns has clearanced some pre-made wood signs to make holiday decor yourself. You can find it super cheap and it makes DIY projects SO much easier. 

Other places to find them are Walmart (although you’ll have to paint the back/stain the sides), Hobby Lobby, and Michaels. If you go to a craft store, make sure to use a coupon! 

Want to make your own Premade Sign?

There are some great tutorials online for making your own. I have made my larger ones with MDF and some trim. 

If you want a super cheap option, Melanie over at Simple Made Pretty has an amazing DIY hack for creating wood farmhouse signs using materials from the Dollar Tree! They’re so easy to make and are perfect for indoor holiday signs.
