How to Make DIY Farmhouse Fall Wood Signs

Fall Cricut Farmhouse Sign

Farmhouse style decor is personally my favorite! It's incredibly easy to make wood signs for the seasons thanks to the Cricut Maker 3 and Cricut Smart Stencil. These fall themed farmhouse wood signs can be hung up or used as shelf decor perfect for the season. These signs could make the perfect gift for family or friends!

Materials: 

 Step 1:

Paint the wood planks each color. Several coats may be needed to obtain a more rich color. Painting the back is optional, but be sure to paint all four sides. Let the paint dry.

Step 2: 

Each of the designs were in Design Space. I added each of the designs I wanted to the canvas by clicking add to canvas at the bottom of the images tab. I sized the horizontal designs 10" x 2.5" and the vertical designs 2.5" x 10" by unlocking the size.

For the weather image, I hid the original weather font and recreated the design with my font preference. To do this, I typed weather in a new font box then ungrouped the letters so I could drag them vertically. They don’t have to be perfectly aligned since the alignment can be adjusted manually. Select all of the letters of the text and select “distribute vertically” then “center horizontally”.

When all of the designs are resized, be sure to attach each of them individually so they are not separate pieces. Then go to the Make It button and sort your designs to prepare them for the cut.

Step 3: 

Place your Smart Stencil material into the machine and allow the machine to work its magic!

Step 4:

Cut your Smart Stencil designs into four separate pieces and begin to weed the designs individually.

Step 5:

Now it is time for the transfer tape! Peel the transfer tape from the backing and lay the non-sticky side face down. Slowly place one end of the stencil on one the transfer tape and bring the stencil down on the tape. Grab your scraper and brayer and apply alot of pressure to the back of the design so it can stick properly to the tape and not peel up when removing the transfer tape. Repeat this step for all four designs.

Step 6: 

Remove the backing of the stencil and place the design on the wood plank for each design. Be sure to use the scraper and brayer to ensure the design stays on the sign and begin painting! I used black and white chalk because it is thicker and dries quickly.

Step 7:

After letting the signs dry, peel up the stencil and weed away the excess material. Peel the Stencil up slowly and if possible, at a 45 degree angle.

The paint can leave some chunks so if you have a brush, lightly brush off the excess dried paint. Sealing the design is optional, but if you want to avoid any scratches to the design, Polycrylic sealant is a good product to use.

 

There you have it! Rustic Fall Farmhouse Wood Signs for your home!
