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!
I love it Taryn! I love when the wood shows through as the lettering. I did that with one of my pallet signs… But wish I had a silhouette! It sure makes the job easier! Pinning:)

Hi Jessica! I’m so sorry I don’t think I got your other message. But unfortunately I don’t do any custom orders myself. But I know you can find TONS of shops on Etsy who do!
What is the size of the font? Love the sign!! so cute!!

Thanks! I believe they are about 4″ tall.
I’m about to make the sign, so I just want to be sure. Are they actually 4 inches tall? They look a lot bigger than that in the picture. I am clueless when it comes to cutting out Vinyl. Thanks so much!
