DIY Pom Pom + Wood Fall Decor Sign

This DIY fall sign is a perfect way to create custom decor for your space that's fun & festive.

You can follow the video tutorial to build the full sign and do the pom poms OR if you're looking for a quick, easy & power tool-free project, just snag a premade sign and add the pom pom lettering.

fall feels

Either you love fall or you're indifferent. If you're here, you're probably shamelessly obsessed like me 🙂

I love fall in the most basic of ways, except oversaturated fall decor. Yellow is my absolute fave, but I lean more towards neutrals when it comes to fall decor than the super bright orange and reds.

This sign is fairly neutral with a pop of color — you can customize to you fave fall hues by painting the background (white or another color?) or changing up the color pick for your pom poms.

Let's get started with the how-to, but don't forget to pin this post for later.

Grab the free fall script template you see me using in the video to lay out your lettering seamlessly. Snag it below:


I created this sign to lean on a credenza or fireplace mantle, but if you'd like it to hang you can attach some picture hanging hardware to the back or add a rope hanger just like I did with the sunglasses holder display diy project, which is a similar style, but smaller.

The only alteration I would make would be to add a few extra staples to the back of the macrame cord since the sign is heavier.

Yield: 1

Instructions

SIGN BUILD

1. Cut your furring strip into 2x 32" pieces and 2x 16" pieces with 45" angles at each end — attach these at the ends with wood glue and finishing nails to make a rectangular frame, sand to smooth

2. Stain the frame with white stain, set aside to dry

3. Cut the shims into 31.5" pieces so that they fit across the back of the frame. Sand and secure with finishing nails (+ wood glue, optional)

POM POM LETTERING:

1. Print the template & tape all 4 pieces together with scotch or masking tape

2. Hot glue pom poms all along the font line, making sure they are close together and touching

3. Add hot glue between each pom pom as to secure them to each other as well as to the paper

4. Cut out the string of pom poms — cut close to the base of the pom poms so that you can't see any of the paper remaining

5. Hot glue the cut out pom pom lettering to your wood sign

Notes

*If you don't have powertools or don't want to build a sign, you can snag a premade one from the craft store HERE or HERE.

I added height with a fall floral pick, which also carried the yellow through the space.

I used a wooden bowl to display small white pumpkins. This added a ton of texture without an overwhelming amount of color.

You can create more interest by adding a beaded garland in with the pumpkins — mine featured wood beads plus some black and white striped beads since I love a patterned accent.

      I used coconut oil!
      It seals the wood a little and brings out the color with a matte finish.

      Great for decor pieces, but not a strong enough treatment for like furniture.
