Fall Farmhouse Sign: Supplies
You legit need only 2 supplies to make this farmhouse sign….and you can find both of them at Dollar Tree!
- White Foam Board ($1 at Dollar Tree)
- You can also do this with black foam board for a different look.
- Wood-Grain Shelf Liner ($1 at Dollar Tree)
- Feel free to use any other pattern, although the wood-grain is what gives it the “farmhousey” look.
Total Cost: $2
If you are going to be cutting the vinyl decal* using the free fall SVG file I created, you will need these supplies:
*I’ve been asked what kind of die-cutting machine I use, and I love my Cricut Explore Air 2. I’m still learning alllllll of it’s many features (even though I’ve had it for 3 years!), but it’s been really simple to use and it’s really user friendly. If you’re thinking about purchasing one, but are still unsure, I highly recommend checking out these Amazon reviews.
How-To: Fall Farmhouse Sign w/Free Fall Decal
Step 1: “Frame” Your Foam Board
*I used the full size of the foam board because I wanted a large sign. If you want a smaller sign, be sure to cut the foam board down to your desired size before doing this 1st step.
Ok, the easiest way to cut the shelf liner is to keep it rolled up, measure about 2 inches, and cut it in one big chunk.
Now, all you have to do is unroll your little 2-inch roll along each edge of your foam board and cut the appropriate length. Are you pickin’ up what I’m puttin’ down? (If you need a better visual, check out Melanie’s post here).
Then peel the backing off of each strip of shelf liner, and apply it to the edge of the foam board…working one side at a time.
If you mess up, no worries! You can pull the shelf liner off of the foam board easily and reapply.
If you have any of the shelf liner hanging over the edge, just wrap it around to the back.
Step 2: Download and Cut Your Free Fall SVG File
Click here for the free “Farm Fresh Pumpkins” SVG file. Now remember….this step is for my die-cutters out there.
Once you download the “Farm Fresh Pumpkins” decal, save the SVG file, and open it in your design space.
You will need to adjust the size once you open the file in whatever design program you use.
Once you are ready to cut the decal, you’ll need two 24″ cutting mats.
Step 3: Apply the Decal to Your Sign
Once your “Farm Fresh Pumpkins” decal is cut, use transfer paper to apply it to your $2 fall farmhouse sign.
Take your time on this step…you want to make sure it’s centered and even!
And that’s a wrap…you’re done!
Display and Enjoy!
Wasn’t that easy?? Honestly, I still can’t believe how great it turned out. A giant farmhouse sign for $2? There’s about to be foam boards alllll up in this house!
I have mine displayed with my chalk painted pumpkins I showed you last week, and I don’t know if I could love it more. 😍
You could also decorate the back of your board with a Halloween decal or even Christmas (add the same border and your choice of decal)! Then when it’s time to decorate for that holiday, just turn your sign around!
