Easy yet BIG hand painted welcome sign for Fall is something you can paint using my step by step lessons!
I had so much fun painting up this bright welcome sign for Fall. The Fall welcome sign is large and eye catching for a gorgeous focal point on your porch, deck or entry way.
Welcome Fall in a big way.
I am going to showcase it on the front porch of my studio cottage along with more Fall fun.
I posted it as I progressed on my Facebook and Instagram accounts and my followers loved it.
I did not have a set pattern, just a rough idea in my mind but I made one for you.
It is available below.
This includes as many of the Fall designs I have available as painting tutorials here on the blog so you could make one yourself.
Prepare Board to Paint Fall Welcome Sign
I started with a six foot 1 x 12 pine board.
I sanded it well then did my Rustic finish in 4 steps to give it a well worn look before transferring the lettering.
Usually I will add the lettering after I had the design painted on but this time around I wanted to see how best to work around the lettering with the designs instead.
From the very beginning I knew I wanted sunflowers on it.
Sunflowers are such a bright cheery flower and easy to paint so that is where I started.
How to Paint Sunflowers
Leaves & Chickadees
In place of the O in Welcome I used a pretty orange pumpkin.
How to Paint a Pumpkin.
I don’t know if you noticed but to give the design dimension I put shading around the designs.
The instructions on how to shadow is in the video for painting the pumpkin.
The lettering is in Black with a DecoArt Sky Grey (affiliate link) for the shading on it.
At the bottom I had thought to put a pile of pumpkins but went with more Sunflowers instead to balance out the design.
And Voila’ you have a fun Fall Welcome sign!
With all the different tutorials you can mix and match as you please for your own unique Welcome sign.
I taped the pages together in such a way as the letters were 2.5 inches apart when painted but you can space them as you wish.
I finished it off with a few coats of Rustoleum Waterbased Spar Urethane (Exterior) to keep it lovely through many seasons. A link showing which one I use is just below.
