Happy Pumpkin Spice Sign for Fall

Happy Pumpkin Spice Sign for Fall

I’m totally in love with pumpkin spice lattes and I have it as much as I can throughout the fall. Since I’m a total pumpkin spice latte junkie, I decided I needed a happy pumpkin spice sign for fall. Why not celebrate my favorite season and drink?

If you like to save money on seasonal or home decor, the best place for signs to redo is the thrift store. All of my creative blogging friends are giving a thrift store item a makeover in this months blog hop. I have a neighbor who thinks of me before she throws out a wood sign or piece of wood and luckily she gave this sign. My husband reminded me it was in the basement a couple weeks ago and I knew it would be perfect, but wood signs like this can easily be found a the thrift store. Sometimes all you need is a little paint and some DIY.

Let’s Create a Happy Pumpkin Spice Sign

DIY Thrift Store Sign to make a Happy Pumpkin Spice Season Sign for Fall

To get started I gave this sign a good sanding. The edges were hard to get to, but I decided to leave some of the brown so that I can give it a light sanding and a rustic touch. My husband filled the holes with Elmer’s Carpenter’s Wood Filler and then sanded them down.

Getting ready to paint Happy Pumpkin Spice Season Fall Decor

Before I paint any room in my house, I get a sample can of the color. They are perfect for projects too. Sherwin Williams Pennywise is a rust colored orange, if the fall season had a color this would be it.

I’ve used it before on my fall porch sign and my fall pallet sign. I gave the sign two coats and after it dried I sanded the edges lightly with the fine grit sandpaper.

For decoration on the fall decor, I chose an SVG from Cricut Design Space™ using my Cricut Access Premium. The coffee cup with the pumpkin on it is my favorite part of it.

I changed the colors so all the words are cut in white and the lid and some leaves in black. I cut everything in permanent vinyl using my Cricut Maker.

Weeding Design for Fall Pumpkin Sign

Next I weeded my design by removing all the access vinyl using my Cricut Bright Pad .

Using transfer paper I added the vinyl to the sign.

Now that I’ve created this Happy Pumpkin Spice sign, I can’t wait for pumpkin spice latte season to begin. Fall is my favorite season and I look forward to it every year. Creating your own DIY fall decor (or any seasonal decor) with thrift store signs is a great way to save money and decorate at the same time.
