How to Make a Fall Sign

So if you have 10 minutes and a garage full of randomness

…this is the project for you.

And if you don’t have that garage full of randomness…maybe you are lucky like me and you have a friend with that perfect stash who is willing to share!

My garage is certainly full enough. {Don’t judge. There are amazing treasures in there. Honestly.}

So I had this idea that I needed a new Fall sign made with all fun letters…so I headed to my garage.

But I couldn’t find what I needed.

So I headed to the antique stores with friends and I put everyone on the hunt for random letters to spell “Fall.”

I came up dry. {Although I did score a few other treasures.}

So later that day my friend called me up…she had searched her stash…and had come up with a plan!

And it’s even more perfect that what I even had in mind!

  1. So cute and creative! And a very sweet friend. 🙂

  2. …and I love how the “F” shows its age with the darker color on the measuring part that was used more than the longer, inside part. This looks really cute~and so nice on your porch!
