DIY Painted Fall Crates

Hey everyone, Katie here! It is September, and while the first official day of Autumn is still a couple of weeks away, I always start crafting fun fall crafts and baking pumpkin goodies long before then. I just finished decorating my porch for Autumn, and I used some of my favorite Walnut Hollow Rustic Crates for FAST porch decor!

These crates work up really fast, because they really only have 2 steps!

  1. Paint your crates! I chose to paint them with warm, Autumn shades of orange and red.


2. Use white acrylic paint and a paint brush to brush on either a fun Autumn quote, or Autumn-y words.

Some examples:

  • Autumn Skies and Apple Pies
  • Maple Leaves
  • Pumpkin Spice Season
  • Chilly Nights
  • BOO
  • Candy Corn

You could easily customize them with different types of font styles and lettering! Try cursive, or a more bold, brush lettered look!

Have you started decorating for Fall yet? I love using Walnut Hollow’s rustic crates as decor! Find out more about Walnut Hollow here:
