Easy Fall Signs & Cute Crocheted Pumpkins

October 15, 2020
I found this small fall stencil pack at Joann Fabrics recently while checking out the fall craft areas at several stores.

There were 5 stencils in the package.

There was also a Halloween stencil pack from Tulip.

The Home Sweet Haunted Home stencil and the adhesive feather/leaf stencils were found, and purchased, at the Dollar Tree.

These two wood cutouts hung in the Dollar Tree's craft aisle, and of course were $1 each.

In Dollar Tree's Christmas area, I picked up these Christmas tree cutouts for some upcoming easy Christmas projects.

Last year, I found fall/harvest galvanized words at Dollar Tree and added them to a fall tote HERE.

This season Dollar Tree has Halloween words like Haunted, Spooky and Beware.

The first project I made with these finds was a Sweater Weather sign using the one of the Joann Fabrics Tulip stencils (they needed to be punched/pressed out), along with one of the wood cutouts from Dollar Tree.

The stencil fit pretty well on the wood cutout.

I painted the cutout and the arrow cutout too with Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in Caviar (black.)

I centered the stencil on the wood cutout and taped it on with blue painter's tape.

I used Decoart Chalky Finish paint in Heritage to stencil the word sweater.  

I swirled my stencil brush on a paper plate to remove excess paint.  To get crisp stencil lines, the brush should be almost dry.

If you have ever wanted to try your hand at stenciling, pick up some of these inexpensive stencils to practice!

I pounced the paint onto the sweater part of the stencil.

I used Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in Manatee Gray to stencil the word Weather.

The dots and swirl were stenciled with Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in Colonel Mustard.

The sign needs a few more dots to fill in the sides and top part.

I stenciled a few more dots on those areas.

For the arrow cutout, I used Haunted Home portion of this Dollar Tree Stencil.

The Dollar Tree Stencil pack also contained this stencil.  I used the cat stencil on the arrow as well.

I used Dixie Belle Paint in Fluff for the stenciling.

I waxed both signs with Dixie Belle's Best Dang Wax in Clear, and added the jute strings back for hanging.

Here is the Sweater Weather sign with the added dots and wax.

I thought the sweater sign looked especially perfect with these three little crocheted pumpkins, made by my friend, Diane.

If you can crochet, here is the YouTube video tutorial on crocheted pumpkins.

Diane used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick Yarn from Joann Fabrics and a "K" crochet hook for these pumpkins.  Her yarn colors were spice, butterscotch and grey marble.  

Diane also used sticks from her yard as stems instead of cinnamon sticks, and Ashland Coiled Wire from Michael's for the tendrils.
