Remember my Rustic Fall Vignette from this year? Well, today I’m sharing the tutorial on how I made the FALL sign made from a wood plank.
I put together the vignette by borrowing things from around the house. After having it almost complete I felt that it was lacking a statement piece so I went into my garage to see what I had to work with.
After finding a piece of stained wood, I used it to put together this Rustic Fall Sign.
The piece of wood was already stained in a Kona stain by Rusteolum. It was 6 ft long so I cut it evenly in two places so each plank was 2 ft.
I lined up the boards and then screwed three wood shims onto the backs to secure the boards together. I used wood shims only because that is what I had on hand but you could use small pieces of wood.
Using my Silhouette cutting machine, I cut out these vinyl letters to use as stencils. I used Bakersville font.
Using left over white paint, I painted over the entire surface using two coats. After it was dry I peeled off the vinyl letters and the sign was complete!
I think it was the perfect touch and not too bad for free!
