Happy Thursday, friends!!! Today, Tara and I, are each sharing a fun fall DIY!
For my DIY, I decided to make a “man in the moon” sign. I’ve seen a lot of signs like this around the blog world and instagram, but they always sell out so fast and I can’t seem to get my hands on one, so I decided to make one!
To start with, I bought this graphic from Etsy for just $3!!!

Next, I asked my husband to enlarge the graphic to an 18 inch circle. I am NOT tech savvy at all, and had no idea how to do this. If you can’t figure out how to get the graphic enlarged, and don’t have someone to do it for you, you could always stop by your local copy center and have them enlarge it for you.
I found a precut 18 inch wood circle at Lowe’s for less than $10. They also sell them at Home Depot.
I stained the wood…
And painted it….
While the paint was drying, I colored, using pencils, the back side of the graphic.
Once the paint was dry, I taped the graphic to the wood.
Then, using a pencil WITHOUT lead, I traced the graphic to transfer the image to the wood.
The tracing wasn’t perfect, but I just needed the basic idea to follow.
Using black acrylic paint, I painted in the lines. I also used a black sharpie in a few places, to outline areas that were too tricky to get with the paint brush.
I finished painting it, then slightly sanded it for an aged look, and placed it on my mantel.
Such a fun and easy DIY! I’m sure you’ll be seeing my moon man in different areas around my house during these fall months. Loving it!!!
