The simplest way to decorate your house for fall is with these fall banner letters.
There is something special about the fall season. Perhaps it’s the red and yellow leaves that are falling from trees, or maybe it’s how we all feel a sense of urgency to finish our summer bucket lists before winter comes. Whatever it is, the fall brings with it an anticipation of magic and mystery. It’s also a great time to bring out your home’s best decorations. Armed with creative, cost-effective ideas, you can make your home look festive with some basic supplies and minimal effort – including these fall banner letters! They are simple to make and will give your home a big impact for little money.
There are several options for printing out your free printable. You can print out the banner letters directly from your computer or print them at a local printer shop. For best results, I recommend printing onto cardstock paper. This will give you a nice sturdy banner letter that will stay together well when you are gluing it together. One of the advantages of making your own banner letters is that you can print them out as many times as you want. You can also use them for many different occasions.
Step 2: Cut out the banner letter or numbers that you need.
Depending on how you want to secure the banner in place, there are two ways of cutting this banner out. If you want to use a hole puncher to make holes in your banner, cut your banner around the orange outline. If you want to use the top of the banner (the grey outline) to fold over a string then cut out the whole banner on the page.
Step 3: Secure your fall banner letters in place.
There are several methods for hanging your banner.
Method 1: Fold the top of the banner over a string. You can use any kind of string that you have on hand such as twine, yarn, or even shoelaces. The only requirement for your string is that it is thick enough to keep the top of your banner in place. After you have folded over the top and attached the string, you are ready to glue or tape the back of the banner to make it stay in place. Clothespins are also a good option to hold the banner on the string.
Method 2: Use a hole puncher to make holes in your banner then thread your string or ribbon through them to secure it in place.
Method 3: Using tape or washi tape (you can find them in a variety of sizes and designs including fall-themed) to tape them onto the wall.
Step 4: Add your own flare to these banner letters.
Once you have your banner letters on a string or wall, you can make it more festive by adding some more decorations to it. Here are some ideas for you to use:
You can use washi tape to create a border for each banner letter. Washi tape is easy to cut and peel off when you are ready to take down your homemade banner decoration and it is easy to find at most craft stores. You can choose a pattern that matches your fall decor or goes with a color scheme you are using in your home.
Go on a nature walk and gather some fall leaves or acorns. Glue or string them onto your banner.
Gather some fall color yarn or string and turn them into tassels. Tie to the banner.
These fall banner letters are a great way to make your home look festive without breaking the bank. Best of all, you can use them for different occasions like birthdays, baby showers, Thanksgiving, etc.! They are simple to make and will give your home a big impact for little money. Here’s to a festive fall season!
The leaves are falling and the weather is cooling off, which can only mean one thing: it’s time to start thinking about autumn meal planning! If you’re like me, the thought of having to come up with a new menu every week is enough to make your head spin. That’s why I’ve put together this handy free printable fall weekly meal planner. Just print it out and hang it in your kitchen so you can easily refer to it when meal planning. Trust me, it’ll make your life a whole lot easier!
Why meal planning is important
Meal planning is important for a number of reasons. First, it helps you save money because you’re less likely to impulse buy or eat out if you have a plan. Second, it saves you time because you can batch cook or do other prep work in advance. And third, it’s good for your health because you’re more likely to make healthier choices when you have a plan.
How to use the Printable
This printable lets you plan your breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack. You also have space for your grocery list.

I’m so excited to introduce my newest freebie: fall-themed bookmarks! These bookmarks are perfect for kids and adults alike. They’re also great for scrapbooking, planners, journals, and more. Keep reading to learn more about these cute little bookmarks.
This free printable fall-themed bookmarks includes four different bookmarks featuring autumn or woodland animals. Each bookmark is decorated with cute illustrations of fall and animals, like a fox, a porcupine, and an owl. One bookmark has a cute fall banner and pumpkins.
Download and print out the fall-themed bookmarks. Cut out bookmarks with scissors or paper trimmers. To make it more durable, you can laminate it or you can slide it into a photo booth bookmark sleeve. I much prefer the latter because I can easily switch out the bookmark and recycle the old one. If you laminate your bookmark, it is no longer recyleable.
Embellishing your bookmarks
You can enjoy your fall-themed bookmarks the way they are or you can embellish them:
Punch a hole on the top of the bookmark and tie a ribbon through it.
Laminate the bookmark to last longer. Punch a hole on top tie a tassel to it or other charms, like initials.
You can embellish your bookmarks as I did with photo booth bookmark sleeves and tassels. I got pre-made tassels from Amazon, but you can easily make them at home. You might need to trim the bookmarks down to fit easily into the photo booth bookmark sleeves. The sleeves I bought are for a 2×6 bookmark, but I had to cut them a little bit smaller to slide it in nicely.
We hope you enjoy our newest freebie: woodland animal bookmarks! These cute little bookmarks are perfect for kids and adults alike. They’re also great for scrapbooking, planners, journals, and more. We hope you have fun using them in all sorts of different ways. Be sure to check back often for more great freebies!
