As you all know, the fall season is my favorite season. I have found a fun way to usher in fall’s arrival by making fall crafts. These easy DIY fall decor ideas are a great project to do with your kids or a group of friends.

I found these wooden pumpkins at the Target dollar spot for just one dollar.
1. Sticker fall sign
For this first DIY fall craft idea I have a sticker that says hello fall. All I need to do is carefully peel this sticker off and place it on this wood pumpkin.
See how easy that is! Just by placing a decal or a sticker on it, I’ve created an autumn sign. If I’m tired of the sticker or I want to change it I can simply peel it off and create something else. You can create home decor for all your favorite seasons.
Rub on Transfer wood sign
1. Place the transfer onto the wood surface
Here’s another DIY fall decor project. This fun project uses wooden pumpkins from the Target dollar spot section but you could use wooden pumpkin blanks from Dollar Tree as well. You can also find them at the hobby lobby, or your local craft store. You can stain these, paint with spray paint, acrylic paint, or chalk paint, or really do anything you want.
So for this next one, I’m going to be using a rub-on transfer that I found at the dollar store. These decals are really fun to work with, you can use them in so many creative ways. All you do is simply peel the backing off like this and place it on however you want it to be. Sometimes it’s hard to decide if you just go totally off so that you don’t have to worry about it being straight, or do you work hard to center it.
2. Rub the transfer onto the wood
I’m going to place this on with the sticky side down, then I just need to rub it really hard. Some people like to just use their a fingernail, some people use popsicle sticks, it’s really up to you. I’m probably going to use a popsicle stick, but I just wanted to show you how this starts. I’ll peel it up in a second and show you what it looks like. After you’re done rubbing it, the hard part is to know when you have actually transferred as much as possible. I suggest you carefully peel the back off and check so that way you can see if it all transferred. If not you can put it back down and do some more. Let’s go ahead and peel it up and see how we did. This is the moment of truth!
3. Peel off the backing to reveal the transfer.
Peel it back slowly and steadily, and look how easy that was.
So we have two super easy projects, one with stickers and the other with these fun rub-on decals.
Decal wooden fall sign
Next, we will use this wooden sign from the dollar store and stickers or decals from Main Street creations. You can also use scrap wood.
You could paint this if you want or leave it plain. I Love staining these and leaving them natural. This wood is raw so it will take stains wonderfully. I’m going to leave it plain on this side because I really want these black letters to pop.
What I’m going to do is peel and stick these decals on the blank. The decals are easily removed. As you could see in my time-lapse, I started putting them on one way, and they didn’t quite fit nicely the way
I wanted them, so you can easily peel them up and move them.
So for just a few dollars, I was able to make all of these DIY fall signs. My favorite thing is they are all pretty much adjustable and adaptable. I could connect these with wire such as floral wire to make a garland out of them and hang them on my front door or set them on a shelf.
I hope this inspires you to make your own fall decorations. I’d love it if you’d subscribe to my YouTube channel and my blog. Thanks for watching and I’ll see you in my next video. Don’t forget to like, share and subscribe.
