Muted tones are what I’ve always loved to decorate with and fall is the perfect season to do so! Leaves start to lose their green and eventually descend to the ground in subdued hues. I’m working with lots of dried flowers this autumn season (see this post – How To Make A Dried Flower Chandelier) and going for peaches and dusty greens. Tap here for my source for Dried Flowers – aFloral.

Fall is welcome and a relief from the extreme heat in many places. Sadly here we do not have a fall season, or I should say that it’s subtle as the lightest breeze that might blow a downy feather. While I was confined to the a/c last week I created a free fall printable banner for my dear readers! I really rely on you guys to read my posts and this blog is going stronger than ever after 14 years. So thank you. I don’t say that enough, but it’s heartfelt.

What can you do with a banner? Well you hang it…but of course! I printed this out and hung the free fall printable banner on my bedroom mantel and styled it with some garden roses. To go along with the “simply faded” theme, some crusty old pots that were sitting outside were brought in. I should share a photo of the large vintage aluminum rack that sits on one the side of the garden to hold pots and planters. It’s quite a collection and they all gain patina over time. I see a beautiful mess out there!

How To Download & Print

  • First you’ll have to download the 6 image files that comprise this banner at Box.com, where I host my printable images. You’ll need to be a subscriber and there is more information about that if you keep scrolling this post. 
  • Once you’ve downloaded…the rest is really simple, so don’t be intimidated! I created these just the right size for standard legal sized paper, so you won’t have to resize anything.
  • USE CARDSTOCK paper, as it is thicker. My printer is a standard home printer. If you don’t have a printer you can save the file to a zip drive and take it in to someplace like Staples to print.
  • If you don’t have this done already as a default, set to auto-rotate. You’ll have two letters on each card to print.
  • Since some of the letters are on repeat, you’ll have to print some more than once. You’ll see this once you download the files where they are stored for your personal use.

Once you’ve printed all of the letters simply cut them out. I’ve designed the banner with a grey background that serves as a guide to make it easy to cut.

Once all of the letters have been printed out take a hold puncher and make a hole as far as the punch will go onto the cardstock. It’s about an inch or so. Make sure to do this on both sides of each letter.

Now you’re ready to string the free fall printable banner together! I dug into my studio stash and found some old silk ombre wired ribbon in fall tones. Yum! Start at one end working left to right and go through the hole from front to back…weaving through each card.

stringing the free fall printable banner

Carefully pull the ribbon or string through and leave slack so that you don’t tear it. Have some ribbon on each end and you’re ready to display it!


  • Don’t have a mantel in your home? Hang your free fall printable banner on a bookcase, shelf, stairway, across a table edge, pin to a wall…you’re limited only by imagination!

    Hi Janet!
    I don’t always comment, but I read every post! I do not have a printer, and pretty sure if I did, I could never figure out the directions! I would love to win this! I do not have a fireplace, but when we did some remodeling of our former 100 yr old home, my husband took one of the beautiful lintels and refinished it for me with old hooks, so this takes the place of a mantel and fireplace for me, this is where I would hang it! I’ve followed you since the Romantic Homes days, and have always loved your style!

    1. Wow…long time follower then and much appreciated Pamela! I’m so happy to have you here!

  5. Miche Ortega says:

    Janet, I LOVE your mantel. That is gorgeous with the pops of color from the old pots and the beautiful banner. Thank you. I appreciate your posts tremendously.

  6. Liz Ratliff says:

    I live in a mobile home and have a bar between kitchen and living room so that would be a perfect spot to hang such a sweet banner. I just found you a couple of weeks ago and am so enjoying your posts. (I live in Texas also ).

    1. So happy to have you here on the blog Liz!

  7. Those are my colors and I love that ribbon. I would definitely hang this on my antique fireplace mantel.

    1. Glad that you like it!

  8. I would hang it in my front picture window to share with my neighbors and those that drive by.

    1. Thank you friend! I’ve pinned your fab project…have a great fall!

  9. This Fall banner is exquisite. The colors are very unique for Fall and I just love it!!


    1. So glad that you like the design Mona!

  10. Catherine says:

    Legal size paper? I’ll end of having to buy an entire ream.

    1. I’m providing this artwork for free, but not the paper. You’ll need a few pieces of card stock, as in the instructions

  11. Hi Janet! I have followed you for at least 2 years now. Everyday, I look to see what beautiful treasures await! Your style is just perfect for me….I am a romantic at heart and love feminine decor and surroundings. I would be so proud to have your gorgeous creation hanging from my mantle! I am a retired teacher and still delight in changing my decor to match the seasons. It might even find itself hanging on an old french armoire in my bedroom. So many places….

    1. Thank you Marsha…nice to hear that you’ve been following along with me here!

    1. Thanks so much Krista!

  12. Teresa Snipes says:

    LOVE the banner! I plan to hang it from the breakfast room fireplace mantle, which is where I hang any kind of seasonal banner.

    However, mine didn’t print off with the gray, just all white. I’ll figure it out, but I just wanted you to know in case I’m not the only one.

    Thanks again for a a gorgeous fall idea and sharing so liberally!

    Teresa, fellow Floridian

    1. I’m so glad that you love it Teresa! It must be your printer, as I have printed out the one shown in the post and several more copies when testing. Maybe check the level of your black ink? Have a great day!

      1. I just love this banner. however, when I printed it the gray background also did not print. I am in the process of trying to figure out where to cut. My ink cartridges are full and I always print on the best quality card stock and printer settings.

        1. I’m not sure Barb, as you can see I printed it out and so did hundreds of others. It must be something in your settings?

  13. Janet,

    I LOVE the fall banner, but I can’t get it to print with the gray image on the white card stock for cutting out. I’ve no idea why, but I’m hoping you or someone else here may have encountered the same thing and found a fix.

    Thanks for all the freebies and the encouragement!


    1. Teresa, I have no idea why this is happening for you since as you can clearly see I printed my own banner out with no problem. I’m thinking that it’s something with your printer or settings. Have you checked your black ink levels lately?
