I was so busy making, creating, fluffing, and decorating last week that I struggled to find the time to share any of it with all of you! But now that I’m somewhat caught up on the home-front, I am ready to unleash some goodness your way. Let’s kick off the fall festivities with a free gift for you–an autumn printable in your choice of chalkboard, or reversed chalkboard.
This sign turned out so cute! My only regret is that I had to scrap my DIY wood frame since some of my wood was bowed and didn’t turn out quite right. I might run back to Lowe’s for another piece of wood and try again. I like it the way it currently is but I think the wood frame would really complete the piece.
I made the quote using a font I had purchased and created a $3 engineer print of my design at Staples. I mounted it to a $5 piece of lauan plywood using spray mount adhesive and secured it to the wall with some removable Command strips.

I did receive a few bubbles this time when mounting, but nothing I couldn’t live with.
I hung the sign over my bar cart and it says, “Autumn makes me want to wear tweed drink tea and learn something.” I’m not sure who the quote is by, but it makes me smile with it’s truth so I knew it was the one for me! I love fall and have already switched over to drinking my beloved Earl Grey each evening.
My neighbor allowed me to cut some of her limelights and I added a $5 grocery store bouquet of roses to create this gorgeous arrangement!
If you were prefer a chalkboard look, I’ve got you covered! Here is a mock-up I created for you in Olioboard of what the print might look like in white on black. You can download both if you’d like and decide later which one to choose!
Would you like access to more free printable in the future? I will be offering some exclusively to my blog subscribers and would love to have you join us. Subscribe to my (at most weekly) newsletter to stay up-to-date on all of my posts!
