Free SVG file – Hello Pumpkin Spice Season
I just love Fall and this year I have decided to finally give pumpkin spice flavoring a try. And let me tell you friends, while it may not be my signature vanilla that I always go for, I am liking the pumpkin spice this season.
Tip: You can get pumpkin spice flavoring for your morning cup of coffee for less than $4 at stores like TJ Maxx or Home Goods versus the $8-$12 price tag at your regular grocery stores or specialty stores.
So you if are wanting to try pumpkin spice this season, it is super affordable to get and a fun twist to the season. Cheers to seasonal living.
DIY Pumpkin Spice Sign
I love DIYs and this Hello Pumpkin Spice Season sign is no different. I also love Pinterest and Instagram when it comes to looking for ideas to decorate my home.
I remember coming across a picture similar to something I had in my home. Here’s a picture of it. It is also part of the inspiration for this project.
I got the idea for this while shopping in the Dollar Tree. I was picking up a picture frame for another DIY craft I was making. It was a pumpkin that required a stand.
I absolutely loved that DIY Farmhouse Pumpkin which inspired so many others to create their own and share on facebook!
Anyway, that project left me with a frame and glass piece after using the frame backing and stand. So I immediately thought of this idea to use the remaining frame and glass. This is a win because one item gave me two DIY crafts I could make. So being a crafty girl, I was super pumped.
Here’s my DIY pumpkin spice sign I re-created!
Super Cute, right?! You can totally make your own sign for less than a few bucks!
Picture Frame and glass. You do not need the backing or stand.
Jute Twine or String. You can get a three pack from Dollar Tree
Foam Brush to paint and Sandpaper
Hot Glue Gun (I like this one) Gluesticks

Adding the Twine
To add the twine hanging piece to the frame you will need to secure on one side first. I did this with a hot glue gun and glue sticks.
By adding the twine and wrapping it several times will give your Hello Pumpkin Spice Season sign a farmhouse look. I also believe that by wrapping it around 6-7 times will help give the frame a little bit more stability.
Then measure out the desired amount for the part that will be showing when hanging. For me, this was about 7-8 inches total, so about 4 inches down to the frame form the center point.
You can choose to make yours shorter or longer. It really is up to you and how you plan to display it.
then make sure you take the twine and pull enough excess from the spool to still wrap on the other side.
Again, using your glue gun and glue sticks secure the twine on the back of the frame. Cut the remaining twine off.
Adding the Decal
Upload the file into your software and cut the SVG file in REVERSE! It is very important that you actually cut the adhesive vinyl in reverse since we are putting it on the back of the glass.
Don’t worry about the front side it will be smooth and read correctly.
If you happen to cut the vinyl regular or not in reverse, you can still apply to the front of the glass. The only difference is that you will feel the vinyl to the touch on the glass.
This is not a big deal, but when I created this project, I wanted to do something that applied adhesive vinyl to underneath or back of a glass item.
If you do the reverse method for adhesive vinyl, you can then use this same method to create other projects where the reverse method matters. For example, you could easily personalize a casserole dish this way, without having to worry about the vinyl ever touching the food.
Finishing the Pumpkin Spice Sign
Once the vinyl is applied you will want to add the glass piece back to the frame from the back side.
I mentioned in my video that I added a bead of hot glue to the back side of the frame and glass to secure the glass in place. This way the glass itself will not slide around.
Check out the Video here!!
Plus, I love making something more secure than it was when I started. Adding the bead of hot glue around the edging will do that for you so you can confidence in your Pumpkin Spice Sign as you decorate within your home.
Wah-La! It’s done and now you have a very inexpensive Fall home decor item to display in your home.
Where to Display Your Pumpkin Spice Frame
So, once I finished this cute little pumpkin spice sign I move it around my home before finding the perfect place to display it.
You can certainly hang it from the wall, or stand it up on your coffee bar. I ended up placing mine on my two0tier stand that sits on our dining table.
In the end, I chouse not to hang it from the twine. This was not because I thought it was not secure. I actually think the twine is very secure.
However, I like the twine sort of draping over the sign itself. Something about that look gives it a more farmhouse vibe.
In the end, I chouse to rest it on the tier stand and let the twine hangover the frame.
What do you think? I love it! And I love it even more because it was probably the least expensive item in my Fall home decor collection and one of the fastest DIYs I have made this season.
