Fall Fonts to Download for Free
Every autumn, I feel like I’m scrambling to find graphic art for free printables and home decorating projects.
My favorite place to find graphic art bundles is Creative Market. I discovered this site soon after I began blogging, and I can’t say enough great things about it.
(You can get six free goods by clicking the banner below.)
However…sometimes I just need a “quick fix” for a design project, and I want some cool, new fonts right away.
That’s where free fall fonts come into play…
PIN THIS FOR LATER!
I’ve hand-picked these fonts across a variety of websites.
Read on to get a better look at each font and get your free downloads! You can also check out the free fall printables that I created using farmhouse watercolor art and some of these free fonts!

Script Fonts for Fall
The fonts below all have a script or cursive style that works well for feminine designs. For Cricut and Cameo projects, thicker script fonts work well to make your design look more professional.
This Apple Blossom font has a whimsical, romantic feel that brings to mind cool autumn breezes and pumpkin desserts. It’s perfect for making t-shirts, wood signs or printables.
This script font is soooo romantic. It’s perfect for making printables or your own SVG designs similar to this Valentine’s Day shirt I made earlier this year.
This font is lovely indeed! The swashes that extend beyond the normal character make this a top pick for DIY t-shirts and monogramming.
If you’re looking for a font that transitions well for Halloween, October Moon has you covered. It has a touch of the fanciful and the spooky.
I especially love the fall fonts with swash characters like Easy November. This is one of my *favorites* for more formal designs like place cards and invitations!
If you love making your own shirt designs or farmhouse towels, October Twilight is the font for you. It has great, fancy swashes that make it a delight for craft projects.
This Moonlights on the Beach font has a more classic romantic feel that would work well for a DIY sign, card or poster.
For a thinner font that looks closer to a handwritten style, download Autumn Moon. This would make a great signature for digital files or letters.
Serif and Sans Serif Fonts
Serif and Sans Serif fonts tend to have a more casual or modern feel. Some look more kid-friendly, while others have a more mature, classic look.
I love the simplicity of this sans serif “Fall is Coming” font. It pairs well with a script font for t-shirts or printable tags.
Are you ready for some pumpkin spice latte? This is the perfect font for coffee mugs or other personalized gear.
Rae Dunn, anyone? This is the ideal font for your knock-off plates and dinnerware. It’s such a fun, skinny font.
This Friday October 12 font is a simple, youthful font that works well for classroom projects and crafts that require a clean print.
This Autumn font reminds me of Charlie Brown. It has a certain nostalgic/cartoonish vibe that I adore.
For a more modern, casual look, try this Colors of Autumn font. It is one of the most masculine fonts of this bunch, so it’s a great choice when making DIY gifts for men.
Do you have clam bakes where you live? That’s not something we do in my neck of the woods, but I do dig how clean and neat this font looks…for any kind of bake!
When I make printables, I’m always looking to mix in a few embellished fonts like this one. Autumn Leaves has just the right touch of whimsy.
Do you remember the book The Great Gatsby? Doesn’t this remind you of that art deco period? I really like how unique and sleek this November Sky font is.
For some reason, I think this thin October font belongs on a calendar. It’s a fun, playful font that any elementary school teacher would enjoy.
Need a font that’s thick and plump? Tan Pumpkins is the font for you! I see this belonging in a pumpkin patch, don’t you?
Okay, doesn’t this After Nightfall font remind you of something from a Tim Burton movie? Right?! It’s a nice font that transitions well from Thanksgiving to Halloween.
Last, but not least, the Grande October 4 font offers a trendy design for printable projects and fall holiday signs. This font may work particularly well for printed projects as opposed to die-cut or vinyl projects on Cricut or Cameo.
Notes on Using Fonts
Now it’s your turn to experiment! Try pairing a script font with a serif or sans serif to see what strikes your fancy. I personally love to mix and match font types for my work on Pinterest and other social media.
Here are some ideas of various ways you can use these fall fonts:
- Personalized t-shirts
- Baseball caps
- DIY mugs
- Monogrammed mugs and tumblers
- Gift tags
- Fall banners
But wait! There’s more!
Bonus: Free Dings for Fall Graphic Art
I also found several great “dings.” These are fonts that have graphics for each letter.

A Quick Note on Downloading Fonts
As you look through these fonts, just keep two things in mind:
- Licensing. Always read the licensing agreement before using these fonts. Most are free for personal use (like making a t-shirt for the kiddos), but you have options to pay for a commercial license (like selling that same shirt on Etsy).
- Pricing. At the time of this writing, these fonts are available for free. However, at any time in the future, one of these artists could win a Font Academy Award and start charging big bucks for his/her design. All the more reason to hurry and download your fonts today.
I hope you enjoy making some creative projects this fall with a wide range of free fonts! For more inspiration, visit my Cricut and Silhouette Cameo Project Board on Pinterest!
