Fall is just around the corner and if you haven’t already, soon you’ll be packing away all your summer-themed decor for acorns and pumpkins. If you’re planning on going the vintage/rustic route for your autumn decor, I’ve got the perfect little DIY fall produce truck for you to make. It’s full of adorable fall produce and is small enough that you can complete it in a few hours and would add some nice detail to any mantel or bookshelf!

Step 1. Decide on the colors you’re going to paint the wood craft truck. You can go minimal and paint everything brown or even metallic bronze or add some vintage colors for a fun look. I originally went with burnt red and green but the truck reminded me of Christmas so I painted over the red with orange. Much more Autumn-y! I also went over everything with a coat of diluted brown paint to add a vintage touch. Deciding how you want to customize your truck is the fun part of this project!
Step 2. Print and trim the “Vintage Fall Produce Truck” Free Printable. I wadded mine in a ball and then spread it out flat to create more of a vintage feel to the sign. Apply to the side of the truck with a thick coat of Mod Podge. Add a few more layers to the front to seal and protect the sign.
You now have a vintage wood craft produce truck ready to adorn your mantle or shelf. All you have to do now is fill the bed of the truck with some miniature pumpkins and you’re good to go! Another option would be to use Putka Pods and some Pumpkin Spice fragrance oil to make your whole house smell like Autumn. Hope you enjoy!
