How to Make a DIY Stenciled Home Fall Sign
The size of your stenciled home sign depends on you. I placed the piece of cardboard on my craft table and laid out Dollar Tree Tumbling Tower blocks to frame out how large I wanted my sign to be.
Then, trace the outside of the blocks onto the cardboard and cut it to size. Then, apply a coat of Waverly White Chalk Paint to the surface of the cardboard.
Allow the white paint to dry completely, then place the adhesive buffalo check stencil (from A Maker’s Studio) onto the cardboard.
Use a plastic paint scraper (from A Maker’s Studio) to spread black paint (from A Maker’s Studio) across the stencil.
Then, carefully pull the adhesive stencil from the cardboard. Allow the paint to dry completely. I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process.
Next, you need to make the HOME portion of your stenciled home sign! You’ll need another piece of plain cardboard for this.
Cut the cardboard into a rectangle that fits across about half the size of your buffalo check cardboard square.
Paint the cardboard rectangle with Waverly White Chalk Paint. Allow the white paint to dry, then place the HOME stencil on the cardboard.
The O in this stencil is an acorn, but that’s not what I wanted for my stenciled Fall home sign, so I didn’t stencil the acorn when I did the other letters.
So, drag the black paint over the H, M, and E of the stencil and pull the stencil from the cardboard. Then, cut out the pumpkin from A Maker’s Studio’s stencil and place it where the acorn was.
Use orange paint (from A Maker’s Studio) to stencil the pumpkin onto the cardboard. The orange, in my opinion, helps the pumpkin really POP!
Then, trim the cardboard into a smaller rectangle with only a little white space around the stenciled design. Hot glue a strand of jute twine around the outer edge of the rectangle.
Make a DIY frame out of Dollar Tree Tumbling Tower blocks
Next, you’re going to use your Dollar Tree Tumbling Tower blocks to create the DIY frame for this stenciled home sign!
Make sure you have a straight edge that you can line the blocks up against. Hot glue them together in strips for each side of the frame.
Allow the glue to dry, then sand off any glue that squished out from in between the blocks. Then, you’re going to stain the blocks.
I like to use Apple Barrel Burnt Umber Acrylic Paint to stain wood because it is so affordable, yet gives me such a high-quality stained finish!
Wet your wood blocks. I use a continuous mist spray bottle that I found on Amazon. Then, pour the paint directly onto the wood and use a wet wipe to spread it across the surfaces.
Use a clean wet wipe to remove any excess paint from the blocks, and allow the wood to dry completely.
Hot glue the strips around the outside of the buffalo check stenciled cardboard. Then, hot glue 2/3 Dollar Tree magnetic buttons to the back of the HOME stenciled cardboard.
Hot glue 2/3 magnetic buttons in corresponding placements on the buffalo check stenciled cardboard.
How to make a DIY Fall bow
To make your DIY Fall bow, cut several strips of the ticking fabric. I get mine from Hobby Lobby. Cut them so they are about the width of your sign.
Lay them in an X pattern, then place one horizontally across the center of the X. Then, lay your bundles up raffia over top the strips and secure the center with a piece of jute twine.
Now, just trim up the ends of the raffia and hot glue a magnetic button to the back of the bow. Lastly, hot glue another magnetic button to the sign where you want to attach the bow.
Finally, place your stenciled home sign and DIY Fall bow onto the buffalo check stenciled cardboard, and you’re ready to decorate for Fall!
Because the bow and stenciled home are on magnetic buttons, you can change them out for the holidays and seasons!
