Fall is in full swing and before you know it we will be getting ready for Christmas. How time flies. Fall season is my favorite time of the year but I miss out on this season since I live in the south. It's hot and nothing about heat and green trees reminds me of fall, but I will incorporate all the warm fall colors in my home to remind me of those cool mornings, leaves turning and pumpkins. I am sharing my fall subway sign. This fun and easy project is great with my fall decor.

Supplies for burlap sign:
Picture frame of any size
Paint - I used Warm Buff and Sweet Potato by Apple Barrel
Stencils or print out of words you can trace
A foam board cut to size to fit your frame
I don't have a Silhouette or Cricut machine so I have been using PicMonkey, I created words which reminds me of fall. I used different fonts and sizes when creating these words. Once I was happy with my subway sign I printed the words. Next, I cut the words apart and positioned the words in order on the burlap. Once I figured out the positions of the wording I snapped a picture.
Next, I cut the foam board down to size to fit my frame and using the warm buff paint, I painted two coats on my foam board. I set the board aside and let it dry.
Once the words are created, I placed the fabric over the words and using a skinny paint brush, I hand painted each letter. See picture on the left. This part is tedious but I enjoy painting, so it was easy for me. Once all the words are painted, I hot glued the burlap to the foam board. See picture on the right.
Here is the finished product and now I can leave this lovely burlap sign up till Thanksgiving. What's there not to love about that. I added another burlap pillow project I created using the same technique.
