Fall Subway Art Ideas

My good friend Barb is posting today on a wonderful fall decoration idea! I have long been in love with “subway art” but I must say I haven’t really experimented with it much. I think that this fall is my chance! Here are some great printables and ideas to get you started.

Fall Subway Art Printables

While the calendar says Summer until September 22nd, my internal clock murmurs fall when Labor Day rolls around. I can justify my decision to start fall decorating on Labor Day. I have fall decorations out for all of September, and then when October 1st hits, I’m ready to add in Halloween decorations, then switch them out with Thanksgiving ones on November 1st. See? It makes perfect sense.

Free printable subway art is an easy peasy way for anyone to add a bit of fall to their home decor even if they’re not ready to pull out the pumpkins and acorns. I currently have 4 picture frames designated for printable subway art. All I use to print the art is cardstock and my HP printer. The frames are cheap-o ones that look good, and are easy to change out 3 to 4 times a year.

This 5 x 7 black frame from Kohl’s hangs in our dining room. I keep the matte inside the frame at all times. Sometimes I use it, and sometimes I don’t. The resolution for this print was 72 dpi which is not the best, however, it worked because I kept the print size small.

This plastic black frame from Michael’s Craft Store lives on a wall in our office. This print had a 300 dpi resolution making it easy to resize and keep the print looking crisp. I loved this one because it’s not the usual subway art printable.

I use two picture frames on our living room mantel, though I think I may add in a smaller black frame for visual interest. The left frame is from Kohl’s and the right one from Michael’s. The only change I made to this mantel for the fall is to change out the subway art, and remove a glittery pink and purple garland.

This subway art printable comes from a site I’ve used before, Today’s Fabulous Finds. I love the use of white space in this print to balance the color-intense print I chose for the other side of the mirror. However, this is where I may add the smaller black frame with a simple print like a pumpkin to balance the mantel.

Print Source: Ninth Street Notions

I found this fun subway art print on Ninth Street Notions, a site I’ll go back to for more prints. I love the use of fonts with white space to be visually stimulating without being crazy.

  1. Oh my gosh…thank you so much for featuring my printables! They look so good in your decor. I’m sort of a beginner at printables and your comments about the resolution are so helpful. I need to look into that and make sure all of them are high res. Thank you again!

  2. Hi Lauryn,
    I’m sorry to bother you but I need to ask you to remove the images and links of these fall printables. Unknowingly, I used copyrighted graphics. It has been a learning experience but stressful. I am trying to do the right thing and remove all the printables. Please let me know if you will do this. I would greatly appreciate your help. Regards, Ann Drake
