Fall Sign Collection 2021 | Shop On The Creek

My fall 2021 sign collection!

My fall sign collection is complete!

I had a lot of fun creating these signs.

I used three different wood cutout sayings & put them on to boards.

The most difficult part was coming up with a theme.  At first I was just randomly painting the signs whatever colors I wanted.  As the deadline for posting my signs for sale came closer, I knew I had to do something different.

I finally came up with a system that worked great for me.

First, I spent a day & stained everything.  To make it easier, I stained both the boards & the wood letters.  In the past I had painted the letters but staining them really was a time saver.

The next day, I worked on the boards.

Instead of choosing all different colors, I picked 3 or 4 of my favorites for this collection.  I had some Fusion Mineral Paint left over from some other projects that I used on the boards.  I really love the paint colors Fusion has to offer.  The colors I used on these boards were Bayberry, Bedford & Sacred Sage.

Once the boards were painted, I gave them a distressed look.  I love how even though the colors were the same, the boards look different after distressing.  The thing about my fall collection is that no two boards are alike.

I also left a few boards with the stain on them.

The next day, I worked on the letters.  Some I left with only the stain on them & paired them with some of the lighter painted boards.  The rest I did in my collection colors & paired them with boards that would color coordinate with them.

Then the words were attached to the boards & I put the picture hangers on the back.

I saved so much time by batching my work together & only using a few colors.  Even though the colors were the same, each sign came out so unique.

I'm still debating if I'll do a winter collection.  These signs took a lot of work & time.  I'm not sure if I'll have the time to devote to a winter collection.  But if there's an interest in my signs, I'll probably end up doing more!
