Easy Fall Sign Project With Letters From Joann Fabrics

September 27, 2020
I found these Place and Time fall unfinished wood letters at Joann Fabrics last week.  They were 50% off, or $4.99.  

I had an idea for an easy fall project!

I frequently use these rough sawn, dog eared, cedar fence boards from Menards for rustic projects.

A 36" piece was cut from the bottom of the board.

I brushed on two coats of Varathane Weathered Wood Accelerator in Grey.  This is a water based product that works on bare wood.

I especially like to use it on these rough sawn cedar boards.

I pulled the jute off of the letters.  It was stapled to the letter backs. 

 I then brushed a couple of coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Fluff on the letters.

I searched through my Hobby Lobby hook stash and pulled out this black pipe hook.  I always purchase hooks when they on sale at 50% off.

The letters were nailed on with small nails and touched up with the Fluff paint.

The pipe hook was screwed on at the bottom of the board, and a sawtooth hanger was added on the back for hanging.

I sprayed a couple coats of Painter's Touch Multi Purpose Satin Clear Spray Paint on as a sealer coat.

Here is my easy Fall Letter project, hanging on the side garage door.

I hung a small galvanized bucket on the hook with a design transfer that says "Golden Wheat".

Even if you don't have many fancy tools or carpentry skills, this is a pretty easy project for beginners.
