Does life happen and you don’t get to finish a crafting project? That happened to me last year, I wanted to make a sign “Welcome to Our Pumpkin Patch” because we all love pumpkins. All of a sudden today (while in the shower) I remembered this project, who else gets great ideas in the shower?
Below are some affiliate links and I may make a commission for purchases made through the following links.
This sign is created on a wooden board about 12 inches long and 5 inches high. I bought this board at the craft store, which one I have no idea because I shop them all. Then I painted it black with acrylic paint.
On my Cricut Explore I created everything on the board in Design Space. The wording is in white vinyl and everything else is made with card stock. I added bowties for my husband and son and a bow for my daughter and I.
I felt like the sign needed something else. I tried to match some ribbon, but nothing matched. Then I remembered some washi tape in my “Craft Stash” downstairs and it was perfect. Seriously I find the best stuff in my stash and it comes in handy. I think all crafters need a stash. I found this tape last year at the dollar store in the fall section.
I still felt like the sign was missing something, so I sent a picture to my mom and sister and my sister suggested adding our pets because of course they are family to. At this moment my sister was brilliant. Plus Cricut Design Space even had a Pomeranian image, which was amazing. Then I used transfer tape and attached the saying to the sign.
The sign turned out cuter then I imagined. Then I used Mod Podge to attach the paper to the sign. Just follow the directions on the Mod Podge and remember a little bit of Mod Podge goes along way.
You can leave the sign as is and use a plate holder or you can glue ribbon on the back and hang it. The choice is yours. I haven’t decided yet where I am going to put mine.
Happy Fall & Pumpkin Picking!
Pumpkins are my favorite part of fall. I wanted to add a new DIY wooden pumpkin sign to our fall decorations. This Welcome to Our Pumpkin Patch Sign combines my love of pumpkins and family. >/span>
