I love making small changes in seasonal decor that won’t break the bank, and if that involves a good DIY project, even better! I recently retouched some vintage botanical prints that I’m sharing with my readers so that you too can get DIY wall decor on a budget!

Free Fall Printables with Botanical Art
Some of you may recall that I’ve had a lovely collage of botanical prints in my breakfast room that I generally leave up year-round. I bought this ensemble off Etsy and love the quality of the shop.
However, when it came time to share my fall home tour, I decided to spice up things a notch by replacing this set with a more fall-ish combination. This time, I went the do-it-yourself route!
(You know that’s always my favorite way to decorate!)
The muted tones of the vintage art remind me of autumn, and the process for printing these couldn’t be easier!
Steps for Printing Fall Botanical Art
As a “thank you” to my newsletter subscribers, I’m offering these fall printables for free. If you’re not currently a subscriber, you can sign up below to have these sent directly to your inbox.
You’ll be the first to know about future freebies from First Day of Home and have access to my exclusive VIP library of printable art, SVG files for Silhouette Cameo and Cricut, and more!
This includes last year’s free fall printables with fun farmhouse phrases and watercolor art.
Step 1: Upload Printables to FedEx
I used the “custom projects” option on the FedEx website to have my botanical art printed. At the time of writing, you can upload your artwork on the site here.
Step 2: Cut Prints Down to Size
I’ve formatted all of these botanical prints for 11 x 14-inch framed wall art, so you may need to resize or reformat the files if you need to print a different size.
Since many copy shops only offer 11 x 17-inch printing, you should plan on cutting the prints down to size.
I love using my paper cutting tool to make sure I have straight lines when cutting the paper down to size. You’d be surprised how much I use this thing for craft projects.
Helpful Tips for DIY Wall Art
- Print on a heavier weight paper or cardstock for best results.
- Choose white or ivory paper depending on the amount of vintage effect you want.
- Measure the glass frame insert over the print to determine where to cut. Then mark your lines with a pencil.
Option: Print at Home
You always have the option to print on 11 x 17-inch paper on your home printer. Just make sure you use the highest quality printer setting possible. Again, you’ll likely have to cut the paper down to fit into a standard frame.
I hope you enjoy getting your home ready for the season with this simple decorating hack!
