Having a pumpkin sign is pretty iconic for the fall season, which is why this a great one to try.

This Faux Tile Pumpkin Sign can help you create a vintage-style fall decor set up. It also pairs well with other decor style preferences.

Although I typically go for the farmhouse theme with my home decor – like with these Dollar Tree Mop Pumpkins – you can create pumpkin decor for any style.

With this super cute sign idea, we are going to use self-adhesive wall stickers that look just like real tile. A certain paint technique (which is easy, by the way) is how you’ll establish the vintage look. The embellishments also give it an extra vintage touch, which of course can be changed if you prefer.

WHY I LOVE THIS PROJECT

I love this project because I’m able to take Dollar Tree supplies and turn them into something that looks like I purchased it Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. Not to mention, can we say cheap – and not in a bad way!

A few years ago, you wouldn’t be able to find supplies like wood cutouts and faux tile adhesive pieces at the Dollar Store. But now, you can find that and some. The other supplies needed for this particular project are also practical, every day things that I already have on hand, which means no extra money spent.

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

  • Self-adhesive wall tile
  • Wooden pumpkin sign
  • Assorted ribbons
  • Fall leaf bunch with acorns
  • Natural jute twine
  • Hot glue gun and sticks
  • Liquid craft glue
  • Acrylic craft paint (light ivory and dark brown)
    supplies to make a faux tin pumpkin craft
  • Spray paint (burnt orange)
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Wire cutters
  • Permanent marker
  • Paper towel (or baby wipe)
  • Branch from your yard
