It’s Fall Y’all and that means pumpkin spice, aqua trucks and fun fall crafts. Today I am sharing a fun Pumpkin Patch Printable Sign that I created. OK don’t get too excited I don’t have a printable to share today but I did create a fun sign with it.
Pumpkin Patch Aqua Truck
How stinkin cute is this sign? And it totally matches my new mantle decor. So here is my story, one day a few weeks ago I went down the rabbit hole of pinterest and youtube and fall craft ideas. I was supposed to be blogging but lately I get distracted easily. Well I stumbled on Wilshire Collections and I was lost. Good golly her printables are just my jam lol.
Well I found the Pumpkin Patch with an Aqua truck and I had to have it. Now I also need a cricut machine becuase I want to start crafting like crazy. Kent tells me I am too busy but I think I can learn a few new tricks don’t you. Anyway back to the printables, I ordered the truck and then started hunting for a fun base to create my own Fall sign.
What I used for my Pumpkin Patch Sign
I had an old metal wine sign that I have not been hanging lately so I figured it would be a cool base. Some antique white spray paint, mod podge and ribbons were all I really needed. I also created a fun sign using a chalk painted clip board from the dollar store ( Dollar Tree and Dollar General also have them).
What you will need
- wood or metal base
- mod podge
How to Create a Fun Fall Sign
- Start with a clean base and select a new colour, I spray painted my metal sign white
- Don’t worry about the middle you will be covering this with the paper
3) figure out the placement of your sign
4) small hint make sure you add mod podge to the back of your picture as well as on the base, helps with adhesion and helps reduce the bubbles
5) after you place the picture, add mod podge to the front. Be generous because it dries clear. I used two coats
6) Create a perfect Ribbon Bow and attach it to the sign
7) Find the perfect spot to hang or place
