This DIY wooden word sign is a lovely idea for decorating your home. Choose a word then decide a shape to replace a letter (“A” in fall is a leaf). You don’t own a jigsaw? No problem. The project will look just as nice without cutting out the shape. Thanks to Her Tool Belt for the nice idea.
I went to Swiss Days a few weeks back, this is the Mecca for craft booths in Utah. It is fun to browse through the booths, see all the neat stuff and buying wrapping paper is a must every year. My kids were with me this year, so I spent way to much money. A few decor items caught my eye though. One shop had signs with really primitive letters of LOVE or HOME, and they replace the ‘O’ with a heart or a house shape. The other one was a very simple shutter using 2 slats and they cut out a shape in the middle and used square wire mesh behind the cut out. I knew I had to come up with a Fall project, so I combined the two. As soon as I saw the LOVE signs, I thought that would be fun with FALL, hoping the maple leaf would resemble an ‘A’.
