DIY Fall Wood Sign with Reclaimed Wood

After learning the trick to write perfect letters on signs, this DIY fall wood sign would be so easy to make!

I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but something about it gives me the urge to create and decorate.  This is the first year I’ve decorated my front “porch” for fall, and I decided to create this easy DIY fall wood sign to be part of the design.

I picked up this wood at an estate sale in the back corner of the garage.  I’m wondering if it was once used for a bed or dresser, but since it was just a pile of wood in the corner, I think it cost less than a dollar.

I used a miter saw to cut one end at 45 degree angles to make the point of the arrow.  You could also use a jigsaw or circular saw and just eyeball the arrow point.

While writing this post, I realized that it has become second nature for me to quickly design and print graphics and letters that I then use to make signs.  Although I’ve walked through the process of how to create your own lettering for signs in this post, I also realized that I have all of these designs that I’ve created just sitting around.

Since I love sharing, I decided to create a mini library of designs, with the primary purpose to create signs.  All I ask from you is to sign up to receive my weekly email delivered every Friday, and you will have permanent access to that library, where I will add all the new designs I create as well.

That’s it!  Super simple and super cheap.  In fact, I’d say this project cost me less than a buck because I had all the supplies laying around.
