Supplies for this Easy DIY Fall Decor Sign

  • Wooden Die-Cut Wreath, mine was from Hobby Lobby
  • Pallet Blank Sign (from Walmart or Hobby Lobby are my favorite)
  • Wooden Die-Cut Word (or use a floral sunflower)
  • Paint (I used a dark plum color)
  • Burlap Wide Ribbon (I used a cream and plum color)
  • Florals (I used Sunflowers and Leaves for the top)
  • Hot glue gun to put it together.

How To Assemble A Fall Decor DIY

Start by painting any items you want to be colored. To match the ribbon accent, I painted the ‘Thankful’ wooden die-cut word in a dark plum color. Finding paint and ribbon that match and coordinate will help your sign look like it goes together professionally.

You can also paint the wooden die-cut wreath. My sign was a dark color, so the plain wood stood out. I like the contrast. You might want to paint or stain the wooden die-cut wreath if you have a white watch pallet sign.

You can also sand the edges a bit to make them ‘softer’ and not such crisp edges — more of a farmhouse feel. If you paint the wreath, this is a good idea, too.

Select the 6″ burlap ribbon to accent the theme you want for your sign. The ones I found in the photo, I found in the wedding section at Hobby Lobby.

So many fun colors each season. I can’t wait to create some Christmas Signs with the buffalo plaid ones. Now back to fall sign decor…

These sunflowers were in the floral department. I simply pulled the flower off the stem and used my wire cutter to remove the tab on the back.

By cutting this off, the flower will lay better on the top. You could use the green flowers it comes with as accents. I saved mine for another project.

Next, I used hot glue to put this fall sign together. You could use a staple gun to attach the burlap ribbon to the sign.

  1. Very cute. I think if I make this I will antique wax the wreath because I like that stained look. I’ll also raise up the wreath with the half beads to give more dimension. Thanks for the great inspiration!
