Pottery Barn Inspired DIY Fall Signs (with Free Printables)

· · · · · ·

Our Pottery Barn inspired DIY fall signs will bring some vintage farmhouse charm to your house this autumn without breaking the bank!

Decorating for fall used to be a simple thing. You’d go outside and collect some dried leaves and dead grass – maybe a corn stalk or two – and throw ’em on your front porch with a couple of pumpkins and a few gourds.

When mums started to bloom, maybe you threw a couple of them into the mix, too.

But then the internet happened.

And then Pinterest happened.

And your dead grass and shiny gourds were no longer good enough, were they?

No, you not only had to decorate your front porch, but you had to start decorating inside your house!

And now, there’s not a room in your beloved home that the All-Judging Eye of Pinterest has spared from seasonal decor.

From bedrooms to bathrooms, kitchens to closets, every room must conform to the current year’s Law of Style as commanded by Goddess Pinterest.

Failure to comply will result in shame and embarrassment and feelings of unworthiness.

There was a time, not too long ago, that you’d need to fork out over $100 for a really cool fall sign for your walls. Pottery Barn still carries these awesome vintage “pick-your-own” autumn signs mounted in a simple wooden frame. But, man alive! $103 each! Who can afford to decorate like that, season after season?

What’s a homemaker on a budget to do?

Well, take a big slug of your Pumpkin Spice Latte, sister, because Handan and I have your back!

Wouldn’t it be great if you could, I don’t know, what’s the phrase?

Oh yeah!

Wouldn’t it be great if you could DIY  those fall signs and save yourself a boatload of cash?

Well, I already showed you how to make simple, awesome, rustic, farmhousey frames!

And now, Handan has put a “Navage Patch twist” on those Pottery Barn autumn signs and made some awesome free printables for you!

Before we begin, be sure to follow us on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram, and also sign up for our email list (by clicking the subscribe button above), so you’ll never miss a post!

So let’s get on with it and see how it’s done.

I assume you’ve gone back and read the Simple DIY Picture Frame post, right madam? Good. Let’s carry on.

Handan designed our Pottery Barn inspired Fall Signs and then printed them on our Canon printer. This printer has been a great investment for us (and at less than $200, it wasn’t much of an investment). We like to do a LOT of printables around here, and this little workhorse has saved us a ton of money and time versus getting them printed professionally. We still use Staples and Amazon for larger printables, but for anything up to 13×19, we print them on our Canon, and the results are just as good as a print shop. And for photographs, this machine is just awesome! But that’s another story, so let’s get back to the fall printables.

Handan wanted our fall signs to be double-sided: chalkboard on one side and ivory on the other, so she printed out two sets on 11×17 size 90lb card stock paper.

Once we had the printouts, we needed to fix the ink, as these printables would not be protected by glass. I took them outside and prepared to seal the ink onto the paper with a matte fixative. I used Rustoleum’s clear topcoat.

To fix the ink on paper, I gave a few very light passes with the topcoat.

And then Handan started to make fun of my RBF (Resting Bitch Face).

The nerve of that woman! She puts me to work and runs me like a malamute in the Idotarod, and then makes fun of me while I toil!

I replied with a four-finger British salute.

When the fixative clear coat had dried (it only take a few minutes), it was time to stick the printables to the wood backing. I used 1/4 inch plywood for the wood backing, cut to the dimensions of the recess I had routed in the back of the frame.

And since she wanted more smiles on her monkey boy while he sprayed adhesive on the wood, her monkey boy obliged.

Wooooooooooooo! Look out, mama, cuz the Spray Man comin’ ta git ya!

You’d think that after that performance, my work would have been concluded for the evening. My martini beckoned from its perch next to the sofa.

But oh, no! There was more!

Next, she wanted me to put the printables onto the glue-sprayed wood! Would this madness ever end? I pounded my fist in defiance, and in the process, I affixed the printables nicely to the wood backing.

By the way, we used spray adhesive, as I wanted to be done with the project quickly, but if you don’t mind your torture project taking 5 minutes longer, you can use Mod Podge or any other white glue to adhere your free printable sign.

Next, I mounted the printables in the frames using a Logan Dual point driver.

Handan loves these double-sided fall signs, since she can quickly change the display when she wants.

Now here is some information on today’s printables: we designed these free printable Pottery Barn inspired fall signs in several colors and four sizes: 8.5×11 inch, 11×17 inch, 16×20 inch and 24×36 inch. The sizes 11×17 inch, 16×20 inch and 24×36 inch are prepared as jpeg, so you can scale them up or down as necessary. 24×36 inch scales down easily to 20×30 / 16×24 / 12×18 / 8×12 / 4×6 inches, and 16×20 inch scales down to 12×15 / 8×10 / 4×5 inches with no problems. If you need help with scaling down these printables so you can print them using your home printer, then make sure you check out Handan’s “How To Easily Resize Pictures” post.

Also, if you don’t have a large format printer like the Canon i8720 Printer (prints up to 13×19 inches) and are wondering the best place to get these printables printed bigger than 8×12, we recommend trying Staples in your area or Amazon print shop. Both stores offer custom-sized prints on matte or glossy paper, and they both cost about the same. Staples also offers Engineering Prints, which are really affordable for large-format prints, but in some areas (like ours), they must be ordered from their online print shop.

Now it’s time to click on the button below to download today’s free printable Pottery barn inspired fall signs – they are in the Fall section of The VIP Patch.

  1. rbf lmao too funny, my son in law (whom i love dearly ) makes my coffee for me on day he is off and i had one of those can’t get to sleep nights and didn’t go to bed until 9:30 this morning and did not get up until 1. well guess what got up groggy as hell and no coffee.and boy was i needing it really bad. my grandson runs over and says gege we gonna plant the plants now, so i say (looking my sil in the eye) WHY GEGE DOES NOT FEEL WELL BUT I AM SURE DADDY WILL HELP Y’ALL , he immediately had a rbf (he despises garden work) and i was happy to see the boys thought this was a splendid idea. Later after i enjoyed a couple of cups i meandered out to the front and say to sil, that will teach you not to make grouchy gege her coffee, he gave me the you are number 1 finger salute xx

  2. Hahaha Malamute in the Iditorod…god u crack me up! RBF hahaha. On a serious note..how much are they sold for ? Dear god what a joke! Not sure how they justify that price but its ok we have you two to show us the way ?

  3. Hello! I love your guys website! You always have awesome DIY projects and just so much cool stuff!

    I’ve gotten a few of your printables, and I love them! Unfortunately I haven’t printed any yet. I’m looking for a printer that will do well for exactly what I’m hoping to make.

    I did check out the Canon you guys mention in this post, but I didn’t read thoroughly.

    I apologize, I’m caring for my father who has cancer and I’m staying pretty scattered these days!

    I am beginning to make my own prints, and I’d like to be able to print and frame them. Would you guys say this is the best route for this? I saw that you say you have bigger items printed elsewhere (and I will go back and read the post more carefully!). I’m just trying to get an idea of about how much I’d need to spend upfront to get several signs made. Any help would be awesome!

    By the way, several months ago I took the time and read your story! I adore it and you guys are so inspiring! How I’d love to have a husband that had any of the same interests as me! You guys are truly blessed! Thanks again for all the awesomeness you share! I look forward to hearing back to see if you can recommend a good start up for me! Have a fabulous weekend!

    1. Hi Kaila – thank you so much! Okay, here’s the deal on that printer – it’s awesome and we totally recommend it! We also have an Epson that we paid $800 for (on sale from $1000) that can print 13″ wide by however long you want, and it prints on canvas. But besides those two points, the $200 Canon is better in every respect! The Canon prints up to 13×19, which is pretty big for a home printer, and the quality is astounding, especially if you print photos on photo paper! Now, if you’ll be needing a lot of prints bigger than 13×19, then you’ll have to consider how many you need vs their cost. You may want to order from Amazon, or you may want to order engineering prints online from Staples. The engineering prints are lower quality, but you can get really big sizes for just a couple of bucks. Now, to answer your wood question from your next comment, your best bet for free wood is shipping pallets. You can usually score them from the backs of almost any kind of store. Just drive around, and eventually you’ll find some! We’re so happy you’ve joined us, Kaila, and we look forward to hearing from you again.

  4. I’m also curious about how you got the chalkboard look on one? I apologize, I’m trying to read but it can’t seem to sort anything out! I clicked the link for the paper you recommend, but it’s only showing available in white, I believe you all used ivory? And I’m really excited to know how you achieved the chalkboard look! Thanks again, you guys are super amazing!

    1. Hi Kaila – all the different backgrounds we offer (chalkboard, ivory and aged) are actually part of the printable. So you start with white paper, choose whichever background you like, and the printer will take care of the rest!

  5. Great project, as usual. I think $103 is my decor budget for the next 2 years! I love that point driving machine. It sure makes framing a print easier–never seen one before! Keep up the good work!

  6. You make me laugh out loud when I read your blog posts! I love your craft ideas as well as your writing style. You and Handan have a great love story and sounds like a fun and fulfilling life! Thanks for sharing all of your great DIY ideas. And you were quite good in your first YouTube video with the wood bead pumpkins!

    1. Thank you so much, Tina! She’s my partner in everything, and I’d be lost without her! I’ll have more videos on the way, so stay tuned! 🙂
