Fall is my all time favorite season. I love the crisp air, the crunchy leaves and the sounds of soccer and football games. So, if you have been following along this week, I’ve been making a Cozy Fall Sign for my front door. I wanted this sign to scream comfy and snuggly. What better way to incorporate those feelings than with the saying “Sweater Weather” and yarn!!
Yarn Art is a big thing right now. I remember growing up and my mom doing macrame; macrame wall art, macrame plant holders, macrame belts. Well, the trend has come back. I wanted to incorporate some yarn into my sign.
When I showed my hubby the final project he said, “What is that?” I replied, “Yarn Art. It is all the rage right now on Pinterest.” He said, “Oh.” He was not impressed, which means I’ll have to make more yarn art and put them around the house to either win him over or to just irritate him (hee, hee).
I hope you like my sign and make one for yourself. Happy Fall, ya’ll!!
What you will need:
- Sweater Weather Wood Sign (see below, mine was about 12 inches long)
- Pom-poms (see below, I made 5 total–3 red, 2 purple)
- Yarn (I used 3 different colors of yarn)
1. First, you need to make your Sweater Weather Wood sign. Go here to get the full instructions: DIY Transfer Text To Wood
2. Next, you need to make your pom-poms. I made 5 pom-poms total, 3 red and 2 purple for my 12 inch sign. Go here to get the easy instructions: DIY Yarn Pom-Poms
3. Once you have your sign and pom-poms made, you can start adding your yarn. Start winding yarn loops into sections. My sections were about 12 inches long and 2-3 inches wide. Staple to your sign. I loved the yarn I used because it had so many different colors and patterns to it. You can use several different kinds/colors of yarn. Keep adding yarn sections until the end of the sign. You can make it as thick or thin as you like varying the lengths of the loops.
4. Now for the fun part. Using a different color of yarn, I used 2 accent colors (which were also used for my pom-poms) I made some accent pieces. I made 3 purple braids and 2 red sections that had about 6 pieces of yarn knotted together. Once you have your accents made, I taped them to the back of my sign then flipped the sign over to see if I liked their placement before I stapled them down. You might want to wait to staple them down until you place your pom-poms, which is next.
5. Now it is pom-pom time. Still working on the back of your sign, flip your yarn pieces up and over your sign. Arrange your pom-poms how you would like and staple to the sign, then flip your yarn back over.
6. Turning your sign over to see the front, you can start tweaking the yarn. For my braids, I unraveled the ends so they were soft and frizzy. I added knots to my red accent pieces. Lastly, I cut some of the bottom loops here and there.
You have done it! You have made the coziest DIY Sweater Weather Fall Sign!! If I made some to sell would you guys want one? Let me know!!
