Welcome to this month's edition of the Thrifty Style Team! We are a group of bloggers who like all things thrifty...projects, decor, crafts, name it!

Thrifty Style Team

This month we have teemed up to bring you a giant giveaway! Each of us has chosen one thrifty Fall item from our stash...and we are giving it away! We are calling it the Thrifty Style Fall Home Decor Giveaway.

You'll be able to head to each blog and see what's up for grabs, plus enter each giveaway, further down this post.

But I'm really excited to share with you the cutest Fall sign that I am giving away! I found this little guy at the Target Dollar Spot for $3 and bought it with the intention of upcycling it.

Don't get me wrong...I have nothing against pumpkin fact I LOVE it! But I wasn't loving the wide font on this sign (or the bright orange color) and knew I could 'cute-en' it up!! Now you may prefer the sign before I got my paintbrush on it...and if that's the case, head to Target and look for one! But I'm loving the shabby spin I gave this little sign.

grateful, thankful, blessed DIY sign for fall

I’ll be giving this thrifty DIY sign away to one of my readers. That’s right…I will be mailing it to your door for free! All you have to do is follow the giveaway entry guidelines at the bottom of this post.

No tutorial today, but it was so easy to upcycle this sign! I painted it with several coats of white chalk paint, gave it a little distressing on the edges and then added words that I cut out of craft vinyl with my favorite tool Silhouette!

I chose fonts that I love and I think they really add to the effect. Plus, this is the time of year when we are reminded just how grateful, thankful and blessed we are, right??

Here are a few additional display ideas for you, should you win this thrifty upcycled sign.

I think we can all agree that it looks cute everywhere, doesn't it?
