Hello Pumpkin Sign
Make this Hello Pumpkin Sign easily with a printed transfer, craft paint and a thrifted sign!
Hello, my sweet friends!
It’s all about fall around here now. I’m all in!! I think. ha! I miss summer but do love the crisp fall days and all that it brings.
So, today, let me show you this adorable sign I made for our front porch.
I stopped by the ReStore last week when I was out and found a few goodies to make over. One of them was this sign that I’m sharing today.
Hello Pumpkin Sign
They had a bunch of these so I picked one up. I thought it’d be a great base for a new, different sign.
It was super simple to do, you can do this too!
Time needed: 1 hour.
DIY Hello Pumpkin Sign
- Tape the frame
I used FrogTape to tape the frame to protect it from overspray.
- Spray paint the inside
I then spray it with BIN primer, followed by white satin spray paint. Let dry.
- Remove the tape
Remove the tape to get it ready for the next step.
- Print out image in reverse
Lay the printed image over the board and transfer.
- Transfer Image
Next, print out the image you are going to use and transfer it to your board.
Want more info on transferring like this or other transfer methods?? Check out this post here… How To Transfer Graphics
- Paint “in the lines”
Hand paint over the transferred image.
- Add a pumpkin, if desired
You can leave the pumpkin off and keep it simple or add it in like so.
I traced the pumpkin that was in the printable/image onto the board and then used several colors to create the look of the pumpkin.
And that’s it!

A fun little sign for my porch.
Oh! And do you see my little mat there?? Yep, I painted it. If you missed my “new simple autumn wreath” post, and how terrible this mat looked then, hop over and see it here.
I just grabbed a can of paint from the garage and hand-painted it right back in.
Good as new! Yippee!! (I used Rustoleum Ultra Cover Indoor/Outdoor paint in flat black, worked great!)
See those faux ferns though?? Yea, not so good! They have faded out on the edges to a neon blue/green color.
But I’ve fixed those since I took these photos too!! haha!
You’ll have to stay tuned for my fall porch post to see them though. ;) Unless you sneaked a peek of it over on my Instagram.
Cute sign, so easy! And the pumpkin was easy to paint too.
Again, stay tuned for my fall porch to see what I did with those ferns and how they look up there on the porch now. Those lights are getting a makeover soon too. We are going to take them down, clean them up and spray paint them.
Oh and look who was peeking out at me as I was taking some of these photos.
Yep, my sweet Ryder Boy. Always by my side.

Super cute!! And what a great idea to refresh your door mat…I need to do that!! XOXO
Yes!! Worked great and like new! :) xoxo
Nancy, your Hello Pumpkin sign is absolutely adorable!!!! And wow – I can’t believe you fixed that door mat – you gave it tons more life now. Well done, ma’am!!!!
Thanks, Michele!! Yes, worked great, don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner!! :) xoxo
Now, how cute is that? Isn’t fall a fun time of year for decorating. I’m looking forward to seeing your porch makeover. Let me guess…..are you painting the porch lights black to match the door? I can’t wait to see what you do. Till next time.
Thanks, Kathy! We haven’t fully decided what color, they are just very worn looking and either need replacing or just freshened up with paint. See you tomorrow with my very simple fall porch! xoxo
Do you have directions for the welcome sign? Thanks!
Yes, sure do! (and the free printable letters you can download) You can find it all here.
